Join Pack 78 in 2 Easy Steps
Step 1 – National BSA Registration
Step 2 - Pack 78 Program Dues and Health Forms
Pay the Annual dues using the secure payment link provided in the welcome email. Annual dues are $240 per child and covers BSA dues, PacSky program fees and expenses for the Rocket kit, Pinewood Derby kit, and entrance fee to the district Pinewood Derby race (for qualifying racers), Pack 78 t-shirt, Scout Life Magazine, returning Den Leader dues and most Pack meeting activities. See BSA and Pacific Skyline Council Membership Fee Structure for more details. The Annual dues do not cover individual den activities, uniforms, handbooks or fees for overnights (e.g. sleepovers, campouts) and special Pack events.
Complete the Health Form (parts A&B). Digitally completed copies of application forms are acceptable, but a paper copy of the Health Form (parts A&B) and a copy of insurance must be handed in to Pack 78 leadership at the first Pack event. (Please do not email the health forms for HIPAA compliance purposes).
Pack and Den Meetings
Den meeting dates and times are determined by what works best for most families in the group. Typically there is one Den Meeting a month and/or a separate Den Activity (these can include bike rides, hikes, museum visits, bowling, go-karting, etc.). These dates can also be found on the Den calendar or ask your Den Leader.
You need to purchase your scout’s Class A uniform: shirt with all applicable patches, belt, hat, neckerchief, slide, and handbook. All uniforms and supplies can be purchased at the local Scout Shops in Palo Alto or Foster City. You can purchase online via https://www.scoutshop.org/uniforms-and-apparel as well.
