Joining Pack 73 is very easy, follow the link on our homepage, fill out necessary paperwork, and then submit the annual dues. The cost for a new member to join is $146, which covers 12 months of membership. Please be advised that $111 of the total goes to national fees and will be paid to BSA, and $35 goes to our pack and will be paid directly to Pack 73.
Unlike with most teams and organizations, BSA's Pack 73 lets you and your family "try it before you buy it". We welcome all who are interested in joining scouts to come to one of our Pack meetings, or a public event, to meet our group and see if you're a fit.
Pack 73 meets on the second Tuesday of each month starting in September and running through May. All Pack meetings are held at the United Methodist Church in West Houston.
We aim to have two large Pack events each scouting year. One in the fall and one in the spring. Additionally, we have monthly activities that range from hiking the local parks, riding the trails at Terry Hershey, visiting museums, to holding fun family oriented cookouts!
In general, each Den (grade level) meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Occasionally, den leaders will have other opportunities that will be on different dates. Den meetings are different from the pack meeting where all the scouts attend the second Tuesday of the month.
All of the Dens will meet each month aside from the Pack Meetings. Here Scouts will work on tasks specifically assigned in their Rank Books.
Den meetings are usually held at alternating Scouts homes or a collectively agreed upon location by the Den.
Den Meetings are run by the Den leaders. These are parents from each grade level that volunteer to lead the Den and make sure the Den is on track to complete advancements as outlined in the Rank Books.
All scouts that join Pack 73 will be given a Pack t-shirt, which is their Class B uniform. While the Class A uniform is encouraged, we do not require them. Scouts can wear their Class B uniform to all events. If you want to purchase a Class A uniform, you can get everything you need from the Houston Scout Shop. Check out their current deals if you are in need of a new uniform or a replacement. Please also be aware that we hold an annual uniform & gear swap so you can snag some essentials from your fellow scouts!
