New members are always welcome to Pack 3001, and boys ages 6 to 11 can join at their appropriate den rank (see Cub Scout Advancements) at any time.
Pack 3001 and its dens meet at various times throughout the month. Scouts and their adult partner are encouraged to attend all den and pack meetings, and parents interested in participating in the Pack Committee are asked to attend the monthly committee meeting (usually held during a den meeting). The general schedule for meetings is described below - please see our event calendar for detailed meeting dates. Unless specified otherwise, all meetings take place at First Baptist Church, 1670 Shatto Avenue, Akron, OH 44313 (map).
Den Meetings: Held Monday evenings starting at 6:30pm. All dens gather together as a pack at the opening and closing of each den meeting.
Pack Meetings: Held on the 4th Monday of each month unless it falls on a holiday, in which case it will be held on the 3rd Monday of the month. Typically no den meetings are held during Pack Meeting weeks.
Pack Committee Meetings: Held on the 3rd Monday of each month, during the Cub Scout den meetings, unless is it necessary to reschedule (e.g. for a holiday).
Siblings in Attendance
All Pack 3001 pack meetings and many events are family friendly and siblings are welcome to "tag along" with other family members. Some activities (such as campouts) are restricted to Cub Scouts and their adult partner unless otherwise approved by the Cubmaster. All activities are designed primarily for the benefit of our Cub Scouts.
All Cub Scouts are strongly encouraged to purchase the following articles of the official BSA Cub Scout uniform (available at the Akron Scout Shop):
Blue uniform shirt
Neckerchief and slide (for the Cub Scout's appropriate den rank)

All Cub Scouts are strongly encouraged to wear their uniform to all Pack meetings and activities unless specifically instructed otherwise by the Cubmaster.
In addition to the above items, Cub Scouts may also optionally purchase and wear the following articles of the official BSA Cub Scout uniform:
Interested Tiger adult partners can also purchase the Tiger adult T-shirt.
