Pack 940 Info

About our Pack:

Cub Scout Pack 940 meets at Main Street United Methodist Church in Kernersville, N.C., and has been chartered since 1975. We are one of the largest cub scout packs in the area, with about 100 cubs in our Pack.

Purpose:

Cub Scouting is a year-round, family-oriented part of the Boy Scouts of America program designed for boys and girls who are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the 10 purposes of Cub Scouting:

  • Character DevelopmentPurposeofCubScoutingCubScouts
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Good Citizenship
  • Sportsmanship and Fitness
  • Family Understanding
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Personal Achievement
  • Friendly Service
  • Fun and Adventure
  • Preparation for Boy Scouts

Dens:

The Pack is divided into smaller groups or “Dens” of 6 to 12 cubs which are all in the same grade. Dens are led by an adult “Den Leader” and typically meet twice a month.  The den meetings are where your cub will have the most interaction with other cubs, work on advancement, and have fun! Each den works on activities which are appropriate for that age group.

Dens are organized as follows:

Kindergarten: Lions
1st grade: Tiger Cubs
2nd grade: Wolf
3rd grade: Bear
4th grade: Webelos I
5th grade: Webelos II

Pack meetings:

The entire Pack meets on the third Tuesday of each month, at 7:00 PM. At the monthly pack meeting the cubs  are recognized for their accomplishments.

Communication:

Pack-wide communications are done primarily via e-mail. To sign up for our email list, click here. This service is provided by Google Groups and requires a Google account. You may use an existing Google account, or simply sign up for a new Google account using your primary e-mail address.

Costs and fundraising:

We believe all children who wish to participate in Scouts should be able to do so, regardless of financial constraints. If you need assistance in order for your child to participate, please talk with your Den Leader, the Cubmaster, or the Committee Chair. Our Pack has one primary fund-raising event each year (typically in the fall), where the cub scouts sell popcorn. This fundraiser pays for awards and reduces the costs associated with scouting activities.

Approximate costs:

  • Registration is $33 annually (encouraged, but optional, Boys’ Life magazine is an additional $12).
  • Cub Scout handbook is $6-9 (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos).
  • Uniforms are approximately $45 (the pack also has some previously used uniforms available at no cost for those in need).
  • Activity costs vary from free to $50 per event.
