SCOUT PARENTS

Scout Parents assist with short-term projects in the den or pack. This might be coordinating pack money-earning projects, service projects, conservation projects, field trips or outings, blue and gold banquet, day camp, pinewood derby, pack overnight camping, or field day events. What Is a Scout Parent? A Scout Parent is a parent or adult mentor of a Scout who enthusiastically participates with their Scout and also helps other volunteers to provide the best quality program experience to all youth in every unit. A Scout Parent  Leads their family in obtaining the values, benefits, and rewards from their family’s Scouting participation, and in sharing these with others.  Enjoys participating with his or her Scout, and inspires their child to persevere in Scouting with their tenure, activity participation and achievement.  Helps enhance youth and parent-mentor recruitment, retention, enthusiasm, commitment, and participation in the passionate GREAT family FUN of Scouting!


HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The most important help that you, as a parent, can give your boy is to work with him on his Cub Scouting activities. His handbook is full of age-appropriate activities that you will enjoy doing together at home. When he completes an activity or project, it is your responsibility to sign his book to verify that he has done his best. And then it is all-important for you to attend the monthly pack meeting with him, so that you can celebrate his achievement. Your role as a parent is the secret of success of the Cub Scouting program! The den and the pack also rely on parent participation to run a successful program. Cub Scouting operates through volunteer leadership. Consider volunteering as a member of the pack leadership team or as a parent helper. Volunteer leaders are an example of Scouting’s principle of service to others. By volunteering in Scouting, you are also giving your son the gift of your time. What could be more valuable? You will have an opportunity to be a positive influence in the lives of him and his friends.

Spending Time with Your Child:

The Secret of Success! Come join the fun of Cub Scouting as a family, its fun! You’ll make new friends, too, as you work with the parents of your son’s new friends. No task is too difficult when you’re having fun as part of a team of Cub Scout parents, reinforcing each other’s efforts to help your boys grow up to be good citizens.


 

PACK MEETING INFORMATION

The Cub Scout pack is made up of all the dens, which meet monthly at the pack meeting, led by the Cubmaster. This is the climax of the monthly den meetings and activities. There are games, skits, songs, ceremonies, and presentations of badges that boys earned during that month. This is where families, not just parents, but siblings, too, can see the achievements of their Cub Scout. The pack, including families, also participates in other special events throughout the year, including: Pinewood derby®: You can build and race a model car with your son. Blue and gold banquet: Cub scouting’s birthday party for all pack members and their families in February. Camping: Join us for our annual Crossover Campout at Pond Meadow Park at the end of May. Scouts can also enjoy day camp at Camp Sayre and Camp Norse in the summer months. Service projects: Pack 22 participates in food drives, conservation projects, or other community activities. Field trips and special outings: Great ways to learn more about the people and places in your community. (Please view the Pack 22 Events Schedule in the sidebar) Make memories with your son that will last a lifetime!
