We thought you could use some help, so hopefully, the following are questions we can answer for you, but if you need any additional help, we’re always here.
So you enrolled your kid, now what?
Your kid will be needing, first of all, a uniform. We have created a handy guide regarding uniforms and everything related to them, you can order them online or you can take your Cubscout to the store to make sure everything fits as it should. Your kid will also need the handbook corresponding to their rank.
You will be prompted to buy a lot, and if you have the means, indulge. However, as tempted as you may be, your kid really only needs a few essentials:
- Council (Included with your shirt)
- Pack number (449)
- Den number (you will be told by your Den Leader)
- Neckerchief holder or ring
This about rounds it up, while our Pack is strict regarding uniform use, we’re also relaxed and will not require official Scout pants or socks.
The Scout Store is located at 1800 Circle 75 Pkwy, Atlanta, GA 30339, right accross the Braves new stadium. You can also call them at (770) 988-9912.
Tip: The Scout Store is a zoo at the beginning of the school year, especially on Saturday. If you don’t need to try on shirts/pants and don’t need to browse all the cool stuff in the store – you can purchase all the required items online.
You bet we are!
This is one of the most fun activities we get to do as a Pack and as a family, so we encourage all family members to come. For those first timers, we created a small list of things we suggest you pack to have a good campout.
A Pack is the whole Cubscouts together, all ranks, all ages under one roof, we have a Pack meeting every month and several Pack events throughout the year.
A Den is made of single units separated by age group. For example:
- Lion Den: Kindergarten
- Tiger Den: 1st grade
- Wolf Den: 2nd grade
- Bear Den: 3rd grade
- Webelos: 4th grade
- Arrow of Light: 5th grade
There can be more than one Den per rank in some cases. All Dens meet more frequently to develop their adventures and these are coordinated by a Den leader.
