Joining Cub Scout Pack 1313 & FAQs
We meet as a pack monthly on the 3rd Tuesday, 6:30-7:30 pm.
Dens meet monthly on days chosen by the den leader and parents.
We hold weekend events such as camping trips, hikes and pack ceremonies a few times over the course of the year.
Dues & Fundraising
National BSA dues - $80/year + one time $25 registration fee.
Capital Area Council dues - $80/year (brand new scouts are exempt from this for the 1st year)
Pack dues - $70/year
Totals: 1st year scouts - $175 Returning scouts - $230
Scouts receive their neckerchief, slide, Class B T-shirt, 1313 patch, Pinewood Derby car, Raingutter Regatta boat and all awards through these dues. We also sell winter greens as a means to raise additional money for the pack and keep dues as low as possible. We do not participate in the BSA Popcorn Fundraiser.
* Our pack believes that cost should not deter a family from participating in scouting. We offer payment plans and can seek out scholarships if needed. Please contact our membership chair for further details.
Steps to Join
Attend our Join Scouting Night event on September 5, 6:30 - 7:30 pm at the Sunrise Valley Elementary School cafeteria for a fun and informational opportunity to meet members of our pack, get questions answered and register. Email our membership chair if you can't make it to that event.
Submit an application through our BSA membership link. You will pay the $80 annual BSA dues and $25 BSA new scout registration fee through this application. We encourage you to add the magazine 'Scout Life' for $15.
Fill out our pack Membership Information Form.
Pay remaining annual dues ($70) to the treasurer at our Join Scouting Night event or the next pack meeting. See this document for details on how to pay pack dues electronically.
Look for an email from your new den leader and have fun at your first den meeting!
