In Cub Scouts, parent help is crucial in helping your son advance on. If you are new to Scouting the best thing to do it to get a book sold at scoutstuff.com or the MTC. In that Book is a Parent Guide which explains scouting. Some of the Guide has been summarized and posted on this page.
This program is designed for boys to learn in a fun way. Each of the boys is divided into dens with boys their own age and will build friends throughout their time in scouts. Our pack works hard to bring all dens together to have fun. For this to happen parents need to help we do not require any big commitment and there are experienced parents always willing to help. Each scout will succeed in scouting as long as they do their best. Read more about the trail to advancement, arrow points, and totem beads on your den page (Now Available.)

Cub scouting is a family activity that gives families an opportunity to spend quality time together. The family provides help and support for the den and pack. Families can help in many different ways, which may vary from family to family, depending upon family structure and other family responsibilities. Some examples of family involvement include:
Be sure to sign up for the events/activities you are interested in upon registering your son. We ask that each family volunteer to help out with at least 2 pack events/activities. We also encourage parents to attend the monthly planning meetings. It is also helpful for parents to complete a Family Talent Survey Sheet.
Fund raising is important. This helps our boys have fun. The money we get from fundraiser goes to the boys in the form of buying patches, and other things for our scout fun.
The Purpose is what we focus on teaching our scouts in a fun way
Some den leaders may require each scout to have their own book while other den leaders may not. Books are a great thing for every scout to have. Each book has places for the den leader to sign off on the requirements. Also the books have almost everything you need to know in them so the scout can work on his requirements in his own time. And loads of info on the program itself. New to Scouts or Want to know more Books are a great way to learn more.
Scouts will need a uniform these are to be worn at den meetings and pack meetings and it displays the patches that the scouts work hard for. Scouts only need to buy the shirt and neckerchief and the other apparel is optional. If you are starting Webelos 1 or 2 you can buy the tan uniform which is the Boy Scout uniform also and wear through Boy Scouts.
Every member of Scouts is expected to provide any scouting appearal. These are uniforms, books, hats. The pack purchases the patches and awards. This is why selling popcorn is important. If you would like to purchase any of these items you can do so by going to http://www.scoutstuff.org/ or by going to the scout store located in Butler By Sheetz and Ireane Stacy's.
