How does my son join Pack 3794?
Our pack has 2 main registration periods each year:
one in the spring (typically mid-April) and the other in
the fall (mid-September), but boys are welcome to join
at any time. Boys are placed in a den based on
their age and/or grade level in school. Look for
registration information to come home from school with
your son, in our local newspaper, or on our website.
You may also contact our attendance and membership
coordinator or committee chairperson through the
"Contact Info" tab to the left.
What is the
difference between the pack and den?
The pack is the entire group of Cub Scouts in Pack 3794,
ranging from age 6 to age 11.
Dens are the individual groups based on the
boys’ ages. 6-7
year old boys start out as Tiger Scouts.
Each year the boys work towards earning their
next rank. After
Tiger is Wolf, Bear, then Webelos.
The boys stay together in their dens throughout
their Cub Scout journey.
In February of a Webelo’s 5th grade
year, he has the opportunity to cross over into a Boy
meetings are there?
Our pack has a pack meeting every month during the
school year, with events and activities in between
meetings and throughout the summer. Pack meetings
typically take place on the 3rd Thursday of the month at
various locations throughout Hartford. The boys'
individual dens meet approximately 2 times per month on
a day, time and location determined by the den leader.
the upfront costs?
Scouts have annual dues of $80 per year, which can be
broken down into two $40 payments throughout the
scouting year. Scouts
signing up in the spring pay $40.
A scout will also need to purchase a complete
Class A uniform consisting of a uniform shirt,
neckerchief, neckerchief slide, belt, and
council/pack/den/world crest patches.
Class B t-shirts are provided by the pack after
the scout registers.
Also, the pack provides the scouts with their
next rank neckerchiefs, neckerchief slides, handbooks,
rank patches and awards each year.
funds added to my son's scout account?
Our pack participates in just one fundraiser during the
year: popcorn sales. This fundraiser takes
place in the fall. Scouts have the opportunity to
pay their own way through popcorn sales.
Each year a chart is given out that shows how
much money would be placed into the scout's account
based on their total popcorn sales. This is the
only way funds are added to the account. If
the scout meets a minimum in his popcorn sales, his
annual dues will be covered.
can I use the scout account for?
Scout accounts can be used to pay for scout
organized outings and camps. The parents must
inform the pack treasurer that they authorize the
use of the scout account for payment for the pack outing
and/or campout prior to the payment due date. The
account can also be used for the purchase of official
Boy Scouts of America class A uniforms and patches
necessary for the uniform at any rank, including adults.
And finally, the account can be used to purchase the
Arrow of Light award for second year Webelos. As
with the outings and campouts, please contact the pack
treasurer to make payment arrangements.
If you transfer and register to another Cub Scout Pack
or Boy Scout Troop the scout account funds can be
transferred directly to the Pack or Troop. Scout
accounts will be absorbed by the Pack if a youth
chooses to leave scouting or does not cross over to Boy
How do I find out how much money is in my son's
Contact the pack treasurer directly to request the
information. You can either speak with the
treasurer at a pack meeting or email the treasurer at
the email address listed under the "Contact

should my son join Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts is a well-rounded program that offers up boys
various lifelong skills.
As a parent, you want to be assured that the
groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent
with good citizenship, character development, and
physical fitness. The
Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime
values into fun and educational activities since 1910.
Cub Scouts is a wonderful way to bond with your son and
watch him grow!
can I get involved?
Our pack is entirely run by volunteer parents.
We cannot be successful without them!
We have multiple volunteer opportunities
available with various time commitments.
Our youngest scouts will be in need of den
older scouts may need co-den leaders or just a parent to
help run a meeting by sharing a special skill or talent
you may have. We
also have other positions within the pack that are of
varying time commitments, but all of equal
importance. Open positions are listed on the main
home page. If
you cannot volunteer at this time, that is fine!
Just being there and present with your scout is
rewarding in itself!
