We provide two optional opportunities for fundraisers to help cover costs. They are our Popcorn fundraiser and Wreath Sales and are held in September and October. These fundraisers are very successful for us and can cover the cost of all Scouting incurred costs. Proceeds from the fundraisers go into your Scout's Scout Account that we keep track of for you. It can be used for any Scout incurred cost (including dues) and will follow your child throughout their time in Cub Scouting (Scout account should be used up at completion of time with the pack, otherwise the account goes to the pack general fund).

We offer many more opportunities during the year for events offered to us from the local Scout Council, District, and other Packs. We will post these as available.
We also offer “Camperships” for those needing assistance with Scouting costs (e.g. Pack Dues) and have 2 of these budgeted for the year. We do not want financial issues to be the reason a Scout cannot participate.
The Council/BSA dues can also be paid based on financial need and information will be supplied in email sent by them.
The Cub and guardian must participate in our Popcorn Fundraiser to qualify for Pack Dues Camporships. Please see a Pack or Den leader if you would like more information.
Due to the amount of time required for the roles, the following positions will have 1 scout yearly dues waived (after the first year of service)
Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Activity/Camping Chair
