Cub Scouts is a program devoted to youth (boys & girls) who are in Kindergarten-5th grade or are ages 5-11 years old providing fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where children can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.

WE NEED YOU! The only way to make our pack run as efficiently as possible is to rely on our parent volunteers. There are several events during the year that need help from all of the parents in the pack, as well as den specific events. Let us know if you are interested in becoming a den leader or committee member. We are all volunteers!
Weekly Den Meetings
Tuesday Nights during the school year (minus holidays)
Lions & Tigers: 6:45 – 7:45pm
Wolf, Bear, Jr Webelos and Sr Webelos – 6:45 – 8:00pm
Meetings are at Central Christian Church, Mesa campus on Lindsay between University and Brown. We meet in the Outback building in the North East side of the campus. Line up outside the Outback building by 6:45 p.m. Please make sure your scout is in their complete uniform and has their Scout handbook. After a brief flag presentation, your scout will go with his fellow scouts to a specified room for their den meeting (see map). At 8:00 p.m., parents must pick up their scout in this room, as scouts will not be released on their own. At this time we will review any necessary information/homework with you.
Once a month, we hold a Pack Meeting in the Outback from 6:45 – 8:00pm. Cub scouts AND parents are asked to attend these as your scout will be recognized and sometimes be performing. It is so important to your scout for you to be there and we do not want you to miss out! As a den, we are responsible to provide cookies at two of the pack meetings. Each scout will need to bring in one package of cookies on that particular night.
6:40 p.m. on specified Mondays (see calendar) Throughout the year, your den is scheduled for flag duty/presentation. On these particular nights, your son will need to arrive at 6:40 p.m. inside the Outback room to practice.
E-Mail and Scoutbook
All of our communication/ reminders will be sent through email using Scoutbook. If you do not use email on a daily basis, please let your den leader know.
