There are a few things you will need to do to join the Cub Scouts and Rye Pack 2:

  1. Please fill out this online form, which provides us with your contact info and all the information we’ll need to assign your child to an appropriate Den, by age and school.

  2. Subscribe EACH email address that you would like to receive emails regarding our Pack 2 events and other announcements via the mailing list signup page.

  3. Fill out an online Scouting BSA application for your child via the following link, which is specific to Rye Pack 2: Please ignore any dues payment with the application — we will instead send you a PayPal invoice for dues via email, although it may take as long as a few weeks. Dues are currently $245/year, but scholarships are available for families for whom this would present a financial burden -- if so, just let us know.

  4. Fill out these medical and release forms -- when you click on the link it will take you to 3 forms in a single, 5 page pdf file. Sign them, scan/photograph and email them -- along with copies of your child's most recent annual physical and your healthcare insurance card -- to Please note that instead of filling out the immunization section of the medical form you can simply send your child's immunization record from his physician, if you so desire.

  5. Purchase a full "Class A" Cub Scout Uniform and Handbook at one of the local Scout Shops (Greenwich, CT or Hawthorne, NY) or online at For the uniform you will need:

  • a shirt

  • convertible pants/shorts, or skorts are also available for girls

  • a belt

  • a neckerchief

  • a neckerchief slide

  • a hat

    NOTE: The handbook, hat, neckerchief and neckerchief slide for your child depends on their age/grade level (Kindergarten: Lion, 1st Grade: Tiger, 2nd Grade: Wolf, 3rd Grade: Bear, 4th & 5th Grade: Webelos).

You will also need a few patches, to sew on the uniform shirt:

  • a Westchester-Putnam Council patch

  • a "2" red pack number patch

  • a den number patch (we will tell you the number), and

  • a purple global scouting patch (if it isn't already pre-sewn on the uniform)

There are instructions for where to place all the badges on the Files page of our website.  Sewing the badges to the uniform is most secure, but Badge Magic or a hot glue gun are decent alternatives.
