Get Involved: It's Simple and Easy
Boys who get the most out of Cub Scouts have parents who spend time with them on Cub Scouts. Our goal is to provide your sons with an entertaining, educational and interactive experience in Pack 759. The boys should be having so much fun they won’t even realize that they are learning new things about our community, environment and themselves.
We have a number of resources that can enable you to participate with your sons beyond attending campouts and meetings.
Cub Scout Handbooks
The Cub Scout Handbook is your guide to the adventures the Scouts will participate in this year. You will notice that for each Rank, there are a series of 4-6 required adventures. These are adventures that the Scouts will work on in the Den meetings. To achieve rank, Scouts will need to complete anywhere from 1-4 additional electives. These electives may be worked on in the Dens and also at home. Each Scout can pick electives that he is most interested in. This is a great opportunity to have some fun with your son and work on a project together!
As a member of Pack 759, every boy is provided with a handbook for their rank along with their neckerchief. During the first year of our program, the Pack and the Den’s will meet at Blackburn Park; you can find the meeting times and schedules on our Pack Calendar and you can download the events to your Google Calendar or iCalendar. Our intention is to get Class B t-shirts for all of the boys who enroll. We will have a Youth profile paper for you to fill out as well as a Parent Handbook and a Talent Sheet for you to complete. volunteering with the Scouts is easy and does not require a bunch of time, just an interest in having some fun with the boys.

The Cub Scout Trail is designed for Scouts to earn at least one belt loop every month. Den Leaders work with Scouts on a huge variety of projects but they cannot complete everything. Working wit your Scout on their “homework” helps you see the things they are learning and keeps the program moving forward so your son can reach his Rank Advancement goals.
Pack 759 Parent Handbook
The Parent Handbook explains how the Pack operates, the various levels of achievement for scouts, and how you might be involved in the Pack. Whether supporting your scout with his or her “homework”, joining the Committee or even taking a leadership role in a Den or the Pack, the Handbook covers most essential questions and expectations for being part of Pack 759!

When attending an event with Pack 759 and the parent is not attending, a Consent Form is required by the Pack. It’s quick and simple – download it below. If your Scout is camping overnight without a parent being present the Annual Health & Medical Form must also be on file with the Pack.
Annual Health & Medical Form
The BSA has provided an Annual Health & Medical Form that is encouraged for all Parents to provide. The form is required if your Scout is attending a Summer Camp, either Day Camp or Week Camp. Your family physician can help you complete the form.
