- What does a typical year in Pack 390 look like?
- We follow the school year. We meet once per month as a Pack, and have many special outings and activities throughout the year:

Winter: Pinewoord Derby, Blue and Gold Dinner
Spring: Bonfire/Bridging Ceremony, Great American Cleanup, Family Campout
Summer: various adventures (e.g. Loveland castle, WP Air Force base, River Walk, etc)
Each den meets 2-3× per month, and also has many special outings and activities of its own (usually one per month or two).
- Is it just for fathers and sons?
- No! The whole family can participate!

- What is Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouting means “doing.” Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy’s sense of belonging.
