Cub Scout Pack 260 is based out of Glendale, Ohio. Our charter organization is St. Gabriel Consolidated School, our local council is Dan Beard Council, and our district is Maketewa District. Many of the scouts in our pack attend St. Gabriel, but it’s not a requirement to join our pack. If you're interested in joining Pack 260, please contact us. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have and welcome your child into our pack.
Cub Scouts is the first phase of the scouting program offered by the Boy Scouts of America. After Cub Scouts, boys can continue into other programs which include Boy Scouts (11-17 year olds), Venturing (14-20, avocation or hobby oriented), Varsity Scouting (sports oriented), Exploring (14-20, career oriented) and other specialty programs.
Cub Scouts is for boys in Kindergarten through 5th grade. In Cub Scouts, boys become part of a Pack and that pack is sub-divided into smaller groups, or Dens, by rank and grade (Lion - Kindergarten, Tiger – 1st grade, Wolf – 2nd grade, Bear – 3rd grade, Webelos – 4th grade and Arrow of Light – 5th grade). Dens can vary in size, but a typical den will be made up of 6-8 boys. Packs are sponsored by community groups such as churches, schools and other service groups that want to provide a program for boys. Our sponsor, or Charter Organization, is St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Glendale, Ohio. Many of the boys in our pack attend St. Gabriel, but it’s not a requirement to join our pack.
The 2020 annual fees to join our Pack 260 are $60. In addition, you are responsible for your son’s uniform which includes a shirt, neckerchief and slide. You can also purchase pants, but most of our scouts wear their school pants or shorts as part of their uniform. In addition, your scout may want a hat and a scout belt (to display their belt loops as the earn them). All your uniform and scouting needs can be purchased at your local Dan Beard Scout Shop located at 10078 Reading Road, Cincinnati, OH 45241.
Each scout who joins our pack will be given a complimentary Pack 260 T-Shirt which can be worn at many of our events where the Class A uniform isn't required. Parents and siblings may purchase their own Pack 260 T-Shirt for a very nominal fee and we also have pink shirts for the moms and sisters.
Boys Life is a scouting magazine that is optional. You can purchase this for $12 per year and your scout will receive a monthly issue with all sorts of scouting information and stories.
