Cost

The registration fee to join Scouting is $33 and $12 for Boy’s Life Magazine annually. In addition, there are one-time uniform costs and nominal activity fees that may be charged by your local unit. Of course, these costs may be offset by unit fundraising and other available scholarship funds. Scouting cost online does not include the local Cub Scouts dues which are a mere $4 a month which covers belt loops, pins, and other awards as well as project materials. The first year you join you also receive the Pack t-shirt! This cost will be collected for the entire year upfront and is prorated. This check should be made out to Marion Cub Scouts Pack 32. (Total annual cost before uniform and extracurricular volunteer events $96, prorated. Scholarships may be avaiable please see Kristen Saint Don for details.)

Uniforms

Please DO NOT purchase a full uniform before speaking to your den leader. Marion Pack 32 often has recycled uniforms. In addition, we do not require uniform pants/shorts or socks. Lion scouts do not need the Lion shirt we will allow/provide a Pack T-shirt. We ask all scouts have a hat, book, and Pack T-shirt for all den meetings. For most Pack Meetings and all Special Events, a Class A uniform is required. This includes a neckerchief, neckerchief slide, hat, uniform belt, uniform shirt with World Crest Emblem, Council Patch and Pack Numbers (32).

Weblos may wear either the Cub Scout Blue or Boy Scout Green Uniform. Please see the website below for guidance on all scouting uniforms.
