Cub Scouts are boys or girls aged 6 to 10. Any boy or girl showing an interest in scouting is welcome to join our Pack. If you are a current cub scout or cub scout parent/guardian or new to scouting in Geneva, please see our latest Pack Calendar to see when we meet.
Pack 130 serves the international community in the Cantons of Geneva and Vaud as well as neighboring France and is affiliated to the Boy Scouts of America’s Transatlantic Council. The Pack has an international outlook and whilst it is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, we have members originating from countries all around the world. All of our meetings are in English, so a command of the language will help your son or daughter feel more involved. That said, as an international pack, we have bilingual scouts, leaders, and parents who will help to bridge any language barriers until a boy or girl can build his confidence in English.
You do not have to be an American to join Cub Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America has clearly defined objectives for its Cub Scout Program. It aims to develop : Moral strength – by focusing on personal qualities, values and outlook. Citizenship – by helping scouts develop a relationship to other people, to the society they live in and by understanding the government presiding over that society. Physical, mental and emotional fitness – by working toward a healthy body, by developing an ability to think & solve problems, by expressing self control, courage & self respect.
We are a non-profit organization run entirely by trained, adult volunteers. Therefore, a parent’s involvement in our scouting community is expected and fully appreciated. The success of the Pack greatly depends upon the cooperation and resourcefulness of everyone. These are just two of our twelve core values. On behalf of Pack 130, we thank you for your interest in scouting and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
