How often are the meetings?
Cub Scouts usually meet in their Dens two to three times each month, and a Pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. Beyond that, it depends on the Den and Pack: a Den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, the Pack may conduct a special event such as a Pinewood Derby, campout, or service activity as an additional event, rather than a substitute for its monthly Pack meeting.
