Become a parent volunteer

Scouting is an adventure for the whole family!

Every Pack is run by a dedicated group of parent volunteers – from Den leadership to the Pack committee, Pack 88 is as vibrant and active as the parents who give their time and energy to their Cub Scouts. All adult leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training which is completed online, with further opportunities to take position-specific and outdoor-oriented courses.
