More Detail:


The Class A is the official Cub Scout Uniform.  It varies slightly by rank but is generally comprised of:

Note - We are a “waist-up” uniform Pack.  Scout pants/shorts/socks are available but not required in our Pack.

Class A uniforms may be purchased in-person at the Steve Matthews Scout Store or online at  We recommend going to the store instead of purchasing online because the store personnel are able to answer any questions you have and help you get the correct items.

The Class B uniform is the Pack T-Shirt (Bright Orange).  This uniform is welcome at most outdoor or informal events or as indicated by Pack Leadership.  Purchase via our pack store or contact one of the leaders at a den/pack meeting for information.  They are also typically available to purchase or pick up at pack meetings.


There will be many events and opportunities to join in fun scouting activities throughout the year.  Events may be coordinated at the pack or den level by leaders or adult volunteers within our pack.  Other events are coordinated by the local council, district, or other BSA entities.  The types of events range from campouts, overnight experiences, and day activities.  All of these events will help build on the cubs' knowledge of scouting principles, skills, and experiences.  Most of these events are optional and paid for individually so don't feel bad if you can't make some of them due to other events or commitments you may have.

Pack Events:  We will typically have at 2-3 campouts and 1-2 overnight events during the school year along with a handful of daytrips or other small events.


Overnight Events:

Daytrips and Other Pack Events:

Council and Other Events:  There will be many types of events that are coordinated/sponsored by the local scout council.  These can include "scout days" at various sporting events, outdoor adventures that may include activities such as archery, BB guns, or other crafts, and day camps.  On a few occasions they may also offer overnight events, such as sleeping at the Cowboys stadium or camping at one of the local council campgrounds.  These events will be shared on our pack website with signup details.  On occasion, we may coordinate as a pack to attend, but will typically be available for individual signup.
