In order to deliver an exciting, educational, and fun-filled program, the Boy Scouts of America has established an annual membership fee to help cover some of the costs to operate and maintain the program. Some of these costs include liability insurance, ongoing advancements in technology, new program development, and various support materials.
Pack 408 offers your son the opportunity to earn a variety of awards and achievements. In order to cover some of the costs for awards and costs associated with operating and maintaining the pack, Pack 408 has established annual pack dues. Pack dues do not cover fees associated with some events, including Camp Outs, Day Camp, Blue and Gold Banquet, Pinewood Derby, Rocket Launch, and Rain Gutter Regatta. However, fundraising can assist families in offsetting these costs.
Pack 408 believes in making Scouting available to every interested boy. As such, we do offer financial assistance to families that need it. Every boy should have the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement from the Cub Scout program.
