Welcome to Pack 568!

Thank you for visiting our website.  Cub Scout Pack 568 is located in Duvall, Washington. We are chartered by Holy Innocents Catholic Church, and we are part of the Northern Trails District within the Chief Seattle Council.  Please read through the questions and answers below to learn more about us.  You can reach us at recruiting@pack568.org

   

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q1.  What is Cub Scouts? 

A1.  Cub Scouts is a year-round part of the "Cub Scouting - BSA" program designed for children who are in or entering kindergarten through fifth grades.  Parents and leaders work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

 

Q2. What are the purposes of Cub Scouting?

A2. 1. Character Development, 2. Spiritual Growth, 3. Good Citizenship, 4. Sportsmanship and Fitness, 5. Family Understanding, 6. Respectful Relationships, 7. Personal Achievement, 8. Friendly Service, 9. Fun and Adventure, and 10. Preparation for Scouts BSA

 

Q3: How do I sign-up?

A3: You are welcome to sign-up/register at any time.  Complete the form online at https://my.bsa.us/609paa0568mb.  Once you register, you will be assigned a username and password and your scout will be added to the appropriate den.  You will have access to our calendar and will start receiving Pack 568 and den emails.

 

Q4: What is a den and what is a pack?

A4: A pack is made up of several dens.  Pack 568 currently has six dens (Lions - Kindergarten, Tigers – 1st grade, Wolves – 2nd grade, Bears - 3rd grade, Webelos I – 4th grade, and Arrow of Light – 5th grade). 

 

Q5: What is the time commitment for Cub Scouts?

A5: That’s a great question.  We gather together as a pack once a month & the whole family is welcome to attend our pack meetings.  Our dens typically meet 1 – 2 times per month.  The den leaders set the meeting schedule.    

 

Q6: What kinds of things will we do in Cub Scouts?

A6: Our pack calendar of events include a lot of fun: Dodge Ball, Corn Maze, Space Rocket Derby, Broom Ball, Pinewood Derby, STEM night, Blue & Gold Ceremony, Crossover Ceremony, Rocket Launching, hiking, and Cub Mobile Racing.  In addition to fun, we’ll also participate in service projects including a service day at the church, a Memorial Day ceremony, and walk in the Duvall Days Parade.  During den meetings, your scout will work on adventures to earn their badge. Each adventure has certain requirements that need to be met – some of these you can do at home, and some will be completed at den meetings. 

 

Q7: How much does Scouting cost?

A7: Our annual membership fee is $100.  In addition to this, you will purchase your scout’s book, uniform shirt and a few initial patches. The Pack will supply you with a neckerchief, slide and the materials to do most activities including the Derby car kit. 

 

Q8: How much are parents required to participate?

A8: Many hands make light work.  We encourage each family to have an active adult serving within the pack.  You can serve by holding a leadership position or by being active in our parent committee.  Parent committee meetings are held the first Monday of each month from 7:30 – 9 p.m.  There are numerous opportunities to serve, and we can help you find an area that interests you.  We are currently looking to fill the following positions: camping chair, advancement chair, committee members & den leaders.  You can also sign up to volunteer at specific Pack 568 events. Engaging in a leadership role sets a great example for our scouts as they are learning to be future leaders! 

 

Q9:  Are there a lot of fundraising events?

A9:  No.  Our main fundraiser each year is selling popcorn in the fall.   Your scout can however earn camp scholarships by reaching certain sales milestones if they choose to do so.  In the winter, we also recycle Christmas trees as a joint effort with three other groups.
