Frequently asked questions

What are Dens and how often are Den Meetings?


Den meetings are held at locations around town such as Lydia Drake Library, Pembroke Public Library, or First Church. Check with your Den Leaders for meeting times and locations. Dens typically meet twice a month (once a month for Lions) in addition to the monthly Pack meeting. Den Leaders do their best to find a central location and common meeting time that works best for all.

How often does the Pack meet as a whole?


Pack 105’s Pack meetings are typically held once a month at North River Community Church on a Friday evening at 7 pm with the exception of the October Pack meeting, which is held at the Herring Run on a Sunday afternoon. The Cubmaster or Pack Committee Chair will send an email communication in advance of the Pack meeting each month to provide any meeting specific details and we issue an annual calendar of Pack events each September to assist with planning. The Pack meeting is always inclusive of fun events, award presentations and civic pride for all Dens in Pack 105 (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos).




What does my scout need in terms of a uniform?


Class “A” Uniform – Cub Scouts are required to buy a Class “A” uniform shirt and the appropriate patches; Mayflower Colony patch, Den number patch and red 1, 0 and 5 patches. At the Lions level, a Lions t-shirt is all that is required so no Class “A” shirt will be necessary until they begin the Tigers program.

Pack 105 will provide you with the handbook, neckerchief and slide as well as a Class "B" Pack 105 t-shirt.

There is a scout shop at Camp Sayre at 411 Unquity Road in Milton, MA where most people get their scouting attire and supplies from. You can also purchase online from www.scoutstuff.org or second hand through various thrift stores, eBay or other web-based retailers. Please note that if obtaining second hand you will still need to get the proper patches through a scout store or the online scouting store.
