Fund Raising


Fundraising Reduces Your Out-of-Pocket Costs!!


Pack 452 sells popcorn to help defer/lessen the cost of the scouting program. The money raised will be split:35% pays for the popcorn, 35% goes to East Carolina Council to help with their expenses, and 30% stays here with the Pack.


The Pack puts 50% of the 30% into an individual Scouts account with the Pack to help pay for the Scouts’ individual Pack activities and annual dues. This is known as Scout Bucks.


Here is breakdown of how selling popcorn helps defer your costs.


If your Scout sells $100 of popcorn, then they will earn $15 in Scout Bucks.

If your Scout sells $650 of popcorn, then they will earn $97.50 in Scout Bucks.

You can use Scoutbucks to pay for camping trips, lock-ins, and dues.

Scoutbucks are good through July 1st. After July 1st all Scoutbuck accounts are reset to $0.


Parent Responsibilities


When joining the Pack, each parent or adult family member agrees to support their child in the following ways:

1. Assures that they have the proper uniforms and handbook and brings them to meetings.

2. Assists them in attending weekly Meetings.

3. Works with them to complete achievements for their rank award.

4. Returns information forms and permission slips as asked.

5. Supports the Den Leader as a resource person or substitute as asked.

6. Agrees to serve in some leadership capacity as called upon.

7. Provides input to the Den leader or Pack leadership with regard to Pack or Den programming.

Our leaders will do their best to provide a quality program, but all the leaders in the Pack are volunteers and have many other obligations. We depend on parents to help provide the best program we can. We ask every parent to help the Pack in some capacity. The most important (and most fun) job is Den leader, however, there are many other areas where your help is appreciated. You should take your share in organizing den meetings and working with the den leader. A parent must attend the Pack meeting together with the Cub Scout. You might notice that every handbook for a Scout has a parent guide at the beginning. 

There are no secrets in Cub Scouts. Parents are welcome in any organizational meetings of the Pack, district or council. The Pack Parent Leader Committee meets once a month.
