Learn all about Cub Scouts: https://www.scouting.org/programs/cub-scouts/
Our recommendation is that you visit the Scout Store at the Atlanta Area Council, and someone there will walk you through all that is needed. You may also use http://www.scoutstuff.org for online shopping.
Here at Pack 175 we focus on your Scout having the following minimum uniform elements:
Shorts, pants, socks, etc. are also available, but are not necessary. Any decent navy blue shorts will suffice.
Note that we have a decently healthy "swap and shop" program where our parents donate den-specific neckerchiefs, slides, and hats as they move up year over year. Ask your den leader if there are any items available and you might get these for free!
Information regarding the placement of patches, insignia, and other recognition can be found here.
Each Scout must complete a BSA Youth application at the beginning of the year. We require all leaders (Den Leaders, Committee Leads, Management, etc.) to complete a BSA Adult application. All parents and guardians are encouraged to spend 20 minutes and take Youth Protection Training.
Our preferred method is that you can pay dues, trip fees, etc. using PayPal. Our PayPal ID is firstname.lastname@example.org. Optionally you can pay with check in person at a den or pack meeting (checks made out to Pack 175).
Dues are required prior to our October camping trip. For PayPal please use the "friends and family" option to avoid processing fees (linking to your bank account).
If you wish to use your credit card through PayPal, then please send an additional $5 in order to cover the associated fees.
