Pack 194 runs lean and efficiently. We don't charge large fees to parents, as we want cub scouting to be available to as many boys as possible.

Similarly, we don't spend a lot of money. Scout leaders are volunteers and generally parents themselves. Our activities usually cost little or no money, only sweat, elbow grease and imagination.

There are several activities and events however that require specific equipment. For some of these events we currently borrow equipment from people or businesses. There are also some events we can't undertake due to equipment not being available.

We would really appreciate any donation, large or small, so that we may make scouting even more enjoyable for Steamboat's boys.

Checks can be sent to:

PO Box 772514
Steamboat Springs, CO 80477

Thanks again,
