Helpful Registration Information

Complete the online Pack Registration Form (scroll to the bottom of this page)

  • We use emails for all of our Pack communication and signups. Please provide an email address that you check regularly.
  • Please provide us your cell phone number so we can reach each other during outings. You can enter your other phone numbers on Scoutbook.com.
  • All of our scouts and uniformed leaders will receive a “dri-fit” shirt. They run smaller than a traditional cotton t-shirt; we recommend ordering one size larger.
  • Let us know your interests and talents. It does not commit you to a role, just help us understand the parent skills and resources available within our pack.
  • Go to https://pack1776.com/volunteering/roles/for volunteer job descriptions.

Medical Form Part A & B and Copy of Insurance

  • BSA requires parents to complete a new waiver and medical form every year in order for scouts to participate in activities.
  • Page 1, Part A requires 2 parent signaturesin the State of California.
  • Page 1, Part A asks for people who can take your scout to and from events. If you list names here, no one outside the list can take your child. We suggest writing “anyone from Pack 1776”
  • If your scout has a“life threatening allergy” please write it on the top of page 1 with a red sharpie.
  • Please provide a front and back copy of your child’s medical insurance card.
  • For immunization history, we only need the date of the last injection.

Submit a check payment of $125

  • Check should be made out to Pack 1776 and can be turned in at the pack meetings or the pack mailbox inside the Coyote Creek office. (on a table by the front door)
  • The fee covers 1) registration with the Boy Scouts of America, 2) subscription to Boy's Life magazine, 3) Class B shirt, and 4) general Pack meeting expenses. It does not include the costs for outings, camping or Class A uniform.
  • If you’re willing to be a trained uniformed leader, we will discount your registration fee by $50; one discount per paid scout. You must complete your BSA Adult Application Form, online Youth Protection training, have all the patches properly sewn onto your uniform, and wear your uniform whenever the scouts wear theirs.
  • You have 30 days or until September 30 for a full refund. After this deadline, we thank you for your tax deductible donation to support scouting.

 A $200 volunteer deposit check, postdated to 4/1/2018

  • Please submit a separate postdated check made out to Pack 1776, even if you are a uniformed leader. It simplifies our job when everyone follows the same rule. We will hold on to this check until the end of the scouting year.
  • If you have fulfilled your eight minimum service hours and log it onto our website at https://pack1776.com/volunteering/we will return your $200 deposit at your child’s graduation.
  • We understand that some families have a hard time completing the minimum service hour. We will accept your $200 volunteer donation in exchange. It will be used to help train our Pack Leaders and support our scouting program.

BSA Youth Application Form for new scouts only.

  • This form is required for all scouts new to Pack 1776, including boys transferring from another Pack.
  • You can ignore the online payment request; the Pack will pay BSA National using part of your $125 registration fee.

Acceptance into the Pack

  • If you signed up during open registration (closes September 30), we automatically accept all boys from kindergarten to fourth grade. We only accept fifth grade boys that have completed Webelos I already.
  • After the open registration period, we only accept new scouts with the Den Leader’s approval.
  • Unless there's room in the current Den, new Den assignment and number is announced after the September Pack meeting.
  • Den Leaders are chosen among the Den parents. Den Leaders do not need any prior scouting or leadership experience; our Pack and District will provide training and support.
