We've Joined Cub Scouts - Now What?

Congratulations on Joining Pack 501.

So, what do you do from here?  The following is a guideline to help get you started on your way.

A) You'll want to get your new Scout a uniform.
You can order this online or we recommend going to the local Scout shop. 
                Northern Virginia Scout Shop
                5234 Port Royal Road
                Springfield, VA 22151
                (703) 321-4836
Tell one of the helpers there that you have a new Scout and they'll help you get their shirt.
Minimum needs:
1) Scout Shirt (It comes with the American Flag patch.
We'll provide the Pack "501" patch. 
You provide the Den numeral and District Council patches.)

2) Neckerchief and Slide (this should match your Scout's Rank Level (ie, Tiger, Wolf, Bear or Webelos)
3) Rank requirements book
Optional purchases:
1) A ballcap for their rank
2) A scout belt to hold the beltloops that they earn
3) A brag vest to display all of the special patches that they'll get
For putting it all together, you can use the Uniform Inspection Sheets below or a new online tool:
