Introduction to Scouting -

A new family orientation resource

This resource is designed to help you and your son get started in the Scouting adventure. If you can't find information you need or have questions, please contact the Cubmaster or Committee Chair, using info on the "Contacts" link or the "Pack Information Sheet" below.

You can start with our Pack Information Sheet. We also have a Pack 2 Handbook that will help you along the way.

Pack 2 is in the Freedom Trail District of the DelMarVa Council.

Levels of Scouting are by the following DENS: Tigers-1st Grade; Wolves-2nd Grade; Bears-3rd Grade; Webelos I-4th Grade; Webelos II-5th Grade

Uniforms:

You'll also need to know what Unifrom to buy and which emblems go with it. (For more detailed info, please refer to the book for your son's level.) Here is a summary of what you'll need:

Our uniform policy is a “belt-up” dress code. This means that when we wear our Class “A” uniform (or dress uniform), we dress from the belt (not including the uniform pants) to the kerchief. Scouts will need the following items:
1. Scout Belt
2. Uniform shirt
3. Kerchief (provided by the pack)
4. Kerchief slide (provided by the pack)

The uniform shirt varies by rank, Tigers, Wolves and Bears wear the Blue uniform shirt and Webelos can continue wearing the Blue or wear the Khaki uniform shirt. We recommend short-sleeve shirts because the boys can always wear a shirt under the uniform when it's cold.

Standard insignia for all boys include the following:
1. DelMarVa Council
2. Pack numeral “2”
3. US Flag
4. World Crest
5. Den number

Standard uniforms for all Leaders include those listed above for boys (Khaki shirt) as well as:
1. Badge of Office (Den Leader, Assistant Cubmaster, etc.)
2. Shoulder Epaulets – Blue color should loops.

Rank badges and other earned badges are provided by the Pack as they are earned.

Class “B” uniform is for more casual events and consists of the Pack 2 T-shirt (provided).
