On Friday, 17 June, our Weeblos II earned the highest award in Cub Scouts, the Arrow of Light and are ready to join a Boy Scout troop. A scout that earns his Arrow of Light patch has also completed nearly all the requirements to earn the Scout badge in the troop so he has already begun his Boy Scout trail.

Hello and welcome to the Pack 130 Genava Website!  Please see our latest Upcoming Events. Cub Scouts are boys aged 6 to 10.  Any boy showing an interest in scouting is welcome to join our Pack.  All of our meetings are in English so a command of the language will help your son feel more involved.  That said, we have bilingual scouts, leaders and parents in our Pack who will help to bridge any language barriers until a boy can build his confidence in English.  You do not have to be an American to join Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America has clearly defined objectives for it’s 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. Pack 130 serves the international community in the Cantons of Vaud and Geneva as well as neighboring France. 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. 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, I thank you for your interest in scouting.  We look forward to hearing from you soon. John Moore Pack 130 Committee Chairman
