FOR NEW PARENTS
How Often Will Your Scout (and You) Attend Meetings?
Meeting schedules and frequency vary by unit.
CUB SCOUT DENS meet frequently — usually once a week. Meetings consist mainly of activities for the Scouts. Cub Scout Packs typically meet once a month. Pack meetings are organized around a theme, and Dens perform skits or demonstrate accomplishments. Parents are welcome at both Den and Pack meetings, but please alert your Den leaders advance if you plan on attending so he or she can plan a way for you to observe or participate in the planned activity.
SCOUT BSA TROOPS typically meet two to four times a month. Patrols may meet more often, and Patrol Leaders typically attend an additional monthly Patrol Leaders’ Council meeting.
VENTURING CREWS also typically meet weekly or bi-weekly.
STEM SCOUTS typically meet once a week during the school year.
