Can I register now?
You can sign up this very minute! First, locate a Cub Scout pack (local Scouting unit) you're interested in joining by visiting BeAScout.org and entering your zip code. The pack you join is up to you. You can look for a pack sponsored by an organization you support (church, school PTA) or simply choose the one closest to your neighborhood. Once you find a pack, complete our online Registration Form with the unit you have selected and begin your Scouting adventure!
I see that if I sign up by September 16th I get a free coupon for the Fall Festival. Do I still get the coupon if I sign up online instead?
Yes, anyone who registers online during our campaign will get a free coupon code for the Fall Festival. You will be emailed the coupon code as the event gets closer. The Fall Festival takes place on October 21, 2016 at the Medicine Mountain Scout Ranch & Adventure Base, located outside of Custer, SD.
My school/church/civic organization already has a Scouting unit. Can't I just join that unit directly?
Sure. If you know when they meet and want to sign-up there, you may do so. Joining online is easy and enables us to make the introduction to your new unit on your behalf. Feel free to join whichever way you prefer.
How much does it cost to join Scouting?
$2.00 per month covers your membership in the Boy Scouts of America. Depending on when you join Scouting, your fee will be adjusted to cover your dues fro the rest of 2016.
This site seems to be all about Cub Scouts. How do I sign up or learn more about a different Scouting program such as Boy Scouts or Venturing?
You can sign up for Boy Scouts using our online Registration Form. Just be sure to indicate that you want to join Boy Scouts at the top of the form. To join Venturing units, visit BeAScout.org and select Venturing before entering your zip code.
