Girls Joining Pack 55

Under BSA's membership policy, girls can join Pack 55.  In Cub Scouts, the den is the key organizational unit, and usually has 6 to 12 youth members.  Pack 55 has dens with boys only, and dens with girls only.  The dens meet separately, usually once or twice each month.  Once each month, all of the dens come together for the Pack Meeting at SJD.  At campouts, each den camps separately, so the girl dens and the boy dens are camping is separate areas, but they all come together for campfires and other pack-wide activities.

Families with girls who wish to join Pack 55 should contact the Cubmaster, Pack Committee Chair or the Registrar.  New families are also invited to attend one of the monthly Pack Meetings.
