- Go to a Cub Scout Pack Meeting. Cub Scout Pack 169 holds weekly meetings. Want to attend one to see what Scouting is all about? Drop us an email to get the next meeting date so you can attend one. You are never under any obligation to join Scouting, nor will you be pressured to sign up on the spot. Just come to a meeting and see how much fun we really have.
- Contact a local Boy Scout of America council to see what Cub Scout Pack's are in your area. Cub Scout Pack 169 is part of the Nashboro Council. Nashboro Council can put you in touch with a Pack that is closest to your town, or a town that you prefer.
If your son is already a Cub Scout, and he recruites a friend, then he gets the Recruiter strip for his shirt, and both he and his friend get a "My Best Friend is a Scout Patch".

Now Scouts can put on their own badges! Never be stressed out by having to sew new badges in time for the next Scout meeting! Badges look great too! No stitch marks, no more crooked placement.
