Where and When do you meet?

Our Dens (grade-level) Meetings take place 1-2 times a month and the location depends on the event (local park, leader's house, etc)
We also have some Friday meetings and camps and hikes often occur during weekends.
How many Scouts are in the Pack?

What happens after 5th Grade?
In the fifth grade, Scouts are able to earn their Arrow of Light badge. This is the final badge earned as a Cub Scout and at this point, the scout has a decision to make. Do they continue forward in Scouting? If they decide that they would like to pursue scouting further, we will help guide them to a 6th-12th grade Troop. Which troop is ultimately the scout's decision.
