What is the time commitment for my child?

Regular meetings run September through May with dens meeting 2-3 times a month and the full pack meeting once a month. Den meetings last about an hour and pack meetings about 1 ½ hours.

What is the time commitment for me?

Cub Scouting is a family activity and parents attend and participate in all meetings and events with their child. Siblings can tag along at meetings, provided that distractions are kept to a minimum. Parents will also work with their Cub Scout on a few at-home achievements as they move through the program.

Where do meetings take place?

Due to COVID-19, Fall Pack Meetings will be held Virtually
via Zoom. The Pack is planning Outdoor Events to give our Scouts and Families
fun opportunities while socially distancing. Den Meetings can be held Virtually
via Zoom or in-person Outdoors. Den Leaders will work with all families to
provide activities for both our families ok with in-person meetings and
families who still prefer virtual meetings.

What is the organizational structure of the Cub Scouts?

Pack 10 belongs to the Brazos District of the Sam Houston Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Pack 10 is made up of Dens, which are grouped by ranks based on grade levels. There are separate dens for boys and for girls. We have 2 Den Leaders for each Den, a Cubmaster and assistant Cubmaster who lead the overall Pack Program, and a Committee Chair and additional committee members who handle activities and administrative tasks. Pack 10 also has a Charter Organization – Morgan Elite Specialist Services, LLC.

Can I be an adult volunteer?

Absolutely! The Pack is 100% volunteer-led and run so adult volunteers are always needed. Pack 10 has a strong core of existing leadership, but there are always opportunities to lead or help out.  There are positions with various levels of involvement and every volunteer makes an enormous impact.

Is Cub Scouting a religious organization?

Pack 10 has no religious affiliation and welcomes all participants. While there are Faith components to each Scouting rank, these are completed at home in a family setting or the church of each scouts’ choice.

Can anyone join Pack 10?

Yes. While Pack 10 recruits from Adolphus, Austin & Frost Elementary schools, all age appropriate children are welcome to join.
