Basic Information for Pack 512


Meetings
Cub Scouts meet with their Dens typically twice a month. The location of Den meetings is determined by the Den Leader. Once a month all of the Dens and Scout families meet for a Pack Meeting. This meeting is either held at an elementary school or outdoors at a park, depending on the activity. An adult partner (parent or guardian) is required to attend all Scout functions with Lion and Tiger Scouts. Parents and families are strongly encouraged to attend the monthly Pack meetings with their older Scouts. These festive events are where Scouts earn their awards, practice flag ceremonies, put on skits, and much more.

The Cost
The cost of joining Pack 512 for 2021 will be $143.00 without a subscription to Boy's Life Magazine and $155.00 with a subscription. This includes a one time fee of $25 and $66.00 annual dues which go to the National BSA Organization. The rest ($52) supports Pack activities and awards (belt loops, pins, and rank patches) that Scouts earn each year. We further fund our program with the annual popcorn fundraiser that Scouts are encouraged to participate in during September and October. The Scouts not only help fund our local Council and the National BSA Organization, but they can actually earn their own way toward paying for membership, camps, and other activities!

Uniform
There is also the necessity of purchasing the Scout uniform and handbook for your Scout. Lions wear the blue Lion t-shirt. Tigers, Wolves, and Bears wear the blue uniform shirt. Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts wear the tan uniform shirt that they will continue to wear when they transition to the Scouts BSA Troop. These items will set you back around $60.00 (less for Lions) at the Scout Store. The store is located at 500 Double Eagle Court in Reno. Pack 512 doesn't require the full uniform right away; you may purchase these items over time. We recommend you get the short sleeved shirt, and buy it a little big so they can use it for several years. The pack also offers "activity shirts" that can be worn for certain outdoor activities for $10.

Special Events
Here are some of the events we typically do each year:
  • Pack Hike
  • Pinewood Derby
  • Fishing Derby
  • Participating in the Veteran's Day Parade
  • Blue and Gold Banquet (celebration of Scouting's Anniversary)
  • Crossover Picnic
  • Pack Camping Trip

The Nevada Area Council also holds Cub Scout Day Camp and Resident Camp in the summer. Every year offers new events and opportunities for families to grow and have fun! Research shows that early involvement in a values-based program is beneficial for strong character development. We'd love to have you join us on the Scouting trail!
