How to Join

Want to get involved?  Great, we’d love to have you.  You can sign up online at https://www.beascout.org .

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send us a message.  To join the good old-fashioned way:

Pack 279 – Grades K-5

We’d prefer that you send us a message ahead of time, but either way, come to one of our sign-up nights in September or April (check the calendar) or come to one of our Monthly Pack Meetings.  Be sure to put your name on the sign-in sheet and find one of the Pack leaders in a tan shirt.

There’s a registration form to fill out, and a $58 membership fee.  This fee will cover you youth until Jan. 1, 2020, as well as a monthly subscription to Boy’s Life Magazine.  Funds permitting (from a good Popcorn sales season), Pack 279 will cover the registration fees in subsequent years.  You can purchase a Cub Scout Uniform, but if you can’t – don’t worry – we have some hand-me-downs as part of our program to make sure that every child can be a uniformed Scout, regardless of financial means.

If you’d like to come on one of the day trip activities with the Pack first, do contact us ahead of time so we can list your child as a “buddy” so he or she is covered by our insurance.

Troop 279 – Ages 11-18

You are welcome to stop by any Troop meeting, on a Tuesday night at 7PM at the white church on the green.  Please check our calendar or call ahead to make sure we’ll be there and not on an outing.  The registration fee is pro-rated by BSA depending on which month you join, but the general range is $27 to $57.  Financial assistance is available for those in need and we often have spare uniforms – every youth in the Lebanon area deserves a chance to be a Scout.
