Join Pack 78 in 2 Easy Steps
Step 1 – National BSA and Council Registration
Step 2 - Pack 78 Program Dues and Health Forms
Pay the annual Pack dues using the secure payment link provided in the welcome email. Annual Pack dues are $90 per child and covers Pack expenses for the rocket kit, Pinewood Derby kit, and entrance fee to the district Pinewood Derby race (for qualifying racers), Pack 78 t-shirt, returning Den Leader dues and Pack meeting activities. The Annual Pack dues do not cover individual den activities, uniforms, handbooks or fees for overnights (e.g. sleepovers, campouts) and special Pack events. Payment is due by the first Pack meeting.
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 (August or September). 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.
