Volunteer Opportunities
We are only as strong as our volunteers. Our boys Scouting success can be attributed to the individuals who volunteer to participate in their leadership. Each family is expected to pitch in in some way. There are many opportunities for you to consider. 

If you have a special talent or interest, please let our Committee Chair or Cubmaster know. We can help you find the right fit or customize something for you.

For in-depth descriptions of pack leadership roles, please visit the BSA's Cub Scout Pack Leader Info page.
