Note to Parents

Our Pack uses "Scoutbook" software to track the your scouts advancements. This software is a "web app" and can be accessed from any device that gets an internet connection such as a smartphone, computer, laptop, tablet or iPad. You, as the parent, have access to view the items recorded for your scout. It is up to you to make sure what you have turned in and what was done in the den meeting was recorded correctly.
We also use Scoutbook to purchase appropriate badges and awards. Make sure you are getting proper credit (by working with your Den Leader) and the recognition will come at each of the Pack Meetings. Scoutbook will track your child's progress for as long as they are in the Pack.
