How to Register - What do you do now?  

You've met some of our Scouts, Scouters and active parents.  You've read our "Adventures in Scouting" guide for Parents/Guardians and learned more about us.  Your son wants to join!

  • First please download a Youth Application.
  • Then Print it out, fill it in, and scan in and email application to us here:, or hand it to us at a Pack meeting.  If neither option is practical, contact us by email (same address as above) and we'll make sure to get the paperwork from you.  It is still a paper-driven process, owned by the Boy Scouts of America.
  • Your son will be assigned to a Den, and the Den Leader will walk you through the rest of the process. Pack 182 Has quite a few Dens already set up to handle all of the scouts in our program.
  • If a new Den has to be created,
    • one of the parents or another volunteer will be trained to become the Den Leader; the Cub Scouts are volunteer-driven.  The time commitment is approximately 4-5 hours per month, which breaks down as follows:
      • (2) Den Meetings a month (1 hour each)
      • Den Meeting Prep time (1 hour) -- the Boy Scouts provides leader guides where Den Meeting requirements are completely scripted.  It is up to Den Leaders to adapt those scripts to the needs of the boys in their den.
      • (1) Pack Meeting a month (1 hour each)
    • All leaders are required to have an Adult Leader Uniform which can be purchased online or at one of the local scout shops - read about BSA Cub Scout uniforms.  (Personal funds spent on uniforms or Scouting supplies are tax deductible - here's an informal guide: "Tips for deducting Scouting-related expenses on your income tax return").
  • When you decide to get more involved with our Cub Scouts Pack (as a Den Leader, Committee member, etc.) Please fill out and submit to an Adult Application for yourself.  Forward the signed forms to

  • There is a NEW class of Cub Scout - the Lions!  This is where your son will be if he is a Kindergarten student in the upcoming school year.  You can read the news about this new program here: Lion Program will bring Scouting to Kindergarten Boys.
  • You can join anytime of year -- his den leader will get him caught up with the rest of his assigned den.
Once your scout's application is received, your Den-leader will be informed that you are joining, and then send you an invitation to the pack website, along with more information about your den.
