Important Notice for 2019/20 Dues!

The Metro Lakes District, which includes Pack 1 and all Scout units in Minneapolis, has set membership dues at $144 per Scout (all at once, or in installments). NO SCOUT will be turned away for inability to pay- if the $144 annual dues is not in your budget, Metro Lakes District has scholarship programs to ensure that your child can be a Scout.

Every child who joins Pack 1 will receive all advancement items (belt loops and patches) and a Cub Scout handbook. The $144 includes National registration fee, local costs, and Pack 1 unit dues.

Ready to join Pack 1 or renew your current membership? Use the Northern Star Council online registration form to add a new Scout, renew an existing membership, or any combination of the above.

Other program costs:

Typically a weekend campout will cost $25/attendee which will cover food, shelter, and activities. Sometimes a den outing has a fee but it is minimal, e.g. going bowling or to a museum.

Pack 1 funds Pack expenses by having Scouts do only one fundraiser per year (annual wreath sale) to keep costs down while keeping programming at a maximum. Toward that end, we ask all families to actively participate in the wreath sale. For Scouts who actively participate in the Pack's annual wreath sale, a Scout's camping costs can be reduced or waived altogether (depending on the Scout's level of sales).
