We are pleased that you are considering joining our Cub
Scout Pack. It is our hope that you and your son will find
your time with the pack a rewarding and fun experience in
which to continue or begin your Scouting adventure.
We have an active Cub Scout program, with Pack meetings
every month, Den meetings and other experiences throughout
the year. We encourage attendance at as many activities as
possible. Some activities can help the boys advance through
the Cub Scout ranks or earn belt loops and badges.
Throughout the year, each Den takes responsibility for a
Pack meeting. This is your Pack, and taking responsibility
to run it will allow both boys and parents to fully
participate in scouting ideals. The Cubmaster often provides
the theme for the meeting, and District Roundtables can
supply plenty of ideas for activities.
We want parents to be active as well! We have numerous
positions available, ranging from a once-a-year commitment,
to Den Leader to Pack administration. We have a Pack
Committee made up of leaders and other adults. The Committee
Meeting is always open to parents and usually meets on the
second Sunday evening of the month to discuss plans, events,
and the fund raising necessary to help the pack go and to
support the plans made by Den leaders.
We encourage parents to consider a role in which they can
best use their talents and skills (i.e., Cubmaster,
Assistant Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Secretary, Treasurer,
Fund raising, Advancement, Activities Chairs or as an
assistant to a position). And not to worry, there are plenty
of training classes to help you along if you feel you don't know
what to do. Remember, all of the current adult leaders
started out where you are - so just jump right up and ask
the Cubmaster or another leader how you can help. And
parents - don't tell the scouts - but sometimes we have as
much or more fun than the boys do.
