My boys started in Cub Scout Pack 26 in the fall of 2008 and it has been a wonderful and worthwhile experience. My oldest graduated in 2011 and moved on to Boy Scouts in 2011 and my younger son will be starting his last year as a Cub Scout next fall. If you have a boy entering first grade, I encourage you to come to the picnic and check it out. We also have some limited openings for boys entering grades 2-5.
Cub Scout Ranks:
Grade 1 - Tiger Scouts
Grade 2 - Wolf Scouts
Grade 3 - Bear Scouts
Grades 4-5 Webelos Scouts (WEBELOS = We Be Loyal Scouts)
After Grade 5 they move up to Boy Scouts for grades 6-12.
Annual Dues: $45
Fundraising: The Holiday Wreath Sale is our only fundraiser of the year and it provides the funds for the majority of our activities and campouts for the rest of the year (except for museum overnights, which are an additional fee per person).

Boys bring your parents to meet Pack 26 families, participate in games and activities, including the timeless scout activity of geo-caching, and enjoy lunch provided by Pack 26. Come learn about the fun and benefits of Cub Scouting. This event is informational; there is no obligation to join. Siblings are welcome. You can join Scouts right away, or make your plans for fall registration. Pack 26 currently has many openings for boys going into Grade 1, as well as limited openings for boys entering grades 2-5 in the fall.
