Parents

We require ALL our parents to be involved with our Pack!

We are a volunteer-run organization, and we can only provide a good program when we have active parents. Furthermore, every year we lose leaders as scouts age out of the Pack. We are always in need of Den Leaders and Committee Members, but if leadership isn't your thing, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities at Pack and Den events throughout the year.

Most parents do not need to register with the BSA, but all our Den Leaders and Committee Members are. If you are joining in one of these official roles, you will need to:

  1. Fill out a BSA Adult Application
    We have paper applications, or you can find the online form here. Fill out pages 4-5 completely.

    • Click on "Home" and then "My Dashboard"
    • Select the "Take Course" arrow to the right of "Youth Protection Training"
    • Send us the PDF certificate you receive at the end
  3. Set your Scout ID number into your my.scouting.org and your Scoutbook accounts
    You will get your Scout ID after your application is processed.
    All your online training will be reflected back to our unit records once your accounts are set.
