Are Cub Scouts the same as Scouting BSA (Formerly Boy Scouts)?

Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America—so in that sense, Cub Scouts and Scouting BSA are both members of the same organization. However, they are entirely different programs: Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys.

How often do Cub Scouts meet?

Cub Scouts meet in their dens once each week, and a pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. Beyond that, it depends on the den and pack: a den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, a pack may conduct a special event such as a campout as an additional event, or as a substitute for its monthly pack meeting. 

Pack 400 Den Meetings are Every Tuesday at 6:00PM at the First United Methodist Church. Pack Meeting dates and location will be annouced. 

May parents attend den meetings?

Cub Scouting is open to parents at all times and aprents are strogly encouraged to help out and participate. Den meetings are intended to be an activity for the individual scouts, and your den leader will be working hard to keep the Cub Scouts focused. Parents are encouraged to participate and help with Pack activites.
