What to expect

Participation

Cub Scouting is designed to be a family activity.  You will need to work with your Scout on progress and advancement in the program. Den Leaders will help guide parents to understand what is required.

We encourage parents to read through their Scout’s Cub Scout Book early in the year and be aware of what activities are required for the Scout to earn each rank. As an important member of the Scouting Team – Scout, Leaders, and Family – we depend on your participation, input, ideas and suggestions. Please keep in mind that Scouting is a volunteer organization and we count on everyone to lend an occasional helping hand.

Communication

With a large group, communication is always a challenge.  Families are primarily kept aware of Pack 130 activities through our Pack Website and e-mail messages from the Pack and Den leaders.  Please be sure that we have your correct, current e-mail address.  We are happy to include more than one e-mail address for your family on our distribution list.

When asked to respond, PLEASE REPLY BY THE SPECIFIED DATE. We need to know in advance how many will attend a particular outing or event.

Listening

There are important things said and done at all of our meetings. In order to benefit, we must all LISTEN – Scouts, Leaders and parents. Please help us keep our meetings focused and productive. Keep control of your children. Scouts and families can socialize before or after the formal activities.

Volunteers

Cub Scouts is a parent volunteer driven organization. The quality of programs we can deliver is only as strong as the willingness of parents to participate. We need your help and participation to make this program work. You will find that the amount of enjoyment both you and your child get from the program is directly related to your participation. Get involved, it’s great!!

Leadership

Teaching the Cubs leadership starts with the example you set for your child. Please show respect for the Den and Pack leaders and for other Scouts at meetings.  The individual primarily responsible for working with your child is the Den Leader.  All of our Leaders undergo training designed to both maintain a safe environment for children, and to provide a solid basis for planning and delivering a quality program.  If at anytime you have questions about the program, please contact the Cubmaster.

General housekeeping

Please be at meetings and outings ON TIME so that the activity is productive and ends when it should!

We need volunteers to arrive early to help set up and please stay a few minutes after the meeting to help clean up.

Since we are all guests and responsible for the places we meet, please ensure your Scout acts properly and follows the appropriate rules.
