Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements to join Cub Scouts?

Does my boy have to attend Sam Houston Elementary School to be in Pack 327?
No. Though the majority of our scouts attend Sam Houston, we have scouts from other Bryan ISD and surrounding area schools.

What does Cub Scouting offer my son?
Cub Scouting offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect. 

How does participation in Cub Scouting affect participation other activities?
The Cub Scout program is designed to compliment many other extracurricular activities. Typical time commitment is two Den meetings and one Pack meeting per month. Boys who participate in organized sports like soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, etc, or academic-based extracurricular activities like music, art, science etc., can be recognized for these activities though Cub Scout belt loops and pins which are worn on their uniform.

  • Provide help and support for the den and pack.
  • Work with your scout on advancement projects and activities.

    How much is it going to cost?
    The annual Pack 327 dues of $45 covers such items as the National registration fee, Boys' Life Magazine, and awards presented to the boys. Other costs include uniforms and some activity fees including those for the Day Camp and other events. Scouts can earn their way through scouting with our fall popcorn sales fundraiser. The money earned by the boys can be used to cover dues, supplies, equipment, or events. Pack 327 does not believe that financial barriers should prevent a boy from participating in scouting. If the cost of dues is a problem, please contact the Cubmaster.

    Where can I buy uniforms, pack and den number patches? 
    Uniforms and scout supplies are available locally at Burdett and Son Outdoor Adventure Shop, located across from Texas A&M University at 1055 S. Texas Ave. Alternatively, you can order everything online from the BSA retail store at

    How can I save money on the cost of uniforms?
    There may be opportunities with older or former scouts or through ebay. Pack 327 does not believe that financial barriers should prevent a boy from participating in scouting. If the cost of uniforms is a problem, please contact the Cubmaster.

    How often are the meetings?
    Cub Scouts usually meet in their Dens weekly or bi-weekly, and a Pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. Beyond that, it depends on the Den and Pack: a Den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, the Pack may conduct a special event in addition to its monthly Pack meeting.
