Volunteer

Parent volunteers are always needed. Registration and training are provided by the Pack for those who are interested in helping. If you'd like to help in any capacity, please use the form on this page to contact the Pack.  All types of help are needed - driving for trips, assisting in Den Leader absence, etc. Remember that Cub Scout Packs don't exist without volunteer leadership and do your part when asked.

Benefits of volunteering

The number one benefit is that you spend time with your son / nephew / grandson.  Scouts have a great time in Pack 406.  You will experience that fun with them.  You will get to visit those cool places that may have missed when you were young, such as climbing up on a fire truck.  Leaders also form lasting friendships from volunteering.

Is volunteering difficult?

Many leaders pair up with other parents to lead dens and organize events.  Pairing up divides tasks and makes the project less time consuming and more fun to complete.  New den leaders can lighten their load by asking parents in the den to teach as least one badge requirement.

What kind of assistance does the Pack offer new leaders?

The current leadership will provide mentoring to new leaders.  Current leadership was once a new leader and they know the challenges faced by new den leaders.  Cub Scouts also provides training and lesson guides for volunteers.
