Join Cub Scouts

Pack 29 would like to welcome you to another fun and adventure filled year of Cub Scouting. Join The Cub Scouts, and your son and/or daughter will be joining a world of fun and adventure. They'll make new friends, go to new places, and learn new games and skills. Scouting will help them to enjoy the world, and get more out of life. And the best part about scouting is that parents can have fun too! Scouting is one of the VERY few activities where families are encouraged to participate right along with their children.

Lions & Tigers & Bears - -OH MY!
(and Wolves and Webelos too!)

A chance for all those boys and girls who just couldn't wait to become scouts. Boys and girls who are Kindergarten age can now join Cub Scouts officially as Lions.

This specially crafted program is intended to introduce kindergarteners to the fun and activity of Cub Scouting that they see all the 'big kids' enjoying while being age appropriate and activity based to hold a young scouts interest.

The Lion program weaves traditional Scouting concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun for the whole family.

The activities introduce the family to Cub Scouting, and provide an exciting way for the little ones to explore the world around them. The program will fuel their imagination, creativity and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide. At the end of the Lion year, they “graduate” to Tiger and advance through Cub Scouting.

Is your scout a Bobcat yet?

It doesn't matter your scouts age - its all about the 'bling' on the uniform! Scouts love to compare their uniform since it is a window into their adventure through scouting. Just look at any cub's uniform and you will be able to know how old they are, where they went camping last, how often they attended meetings and a wealth of other information.

Help your Cub Scout get started quickly in Cub Scouts by helping them to earn their Bob Cat award.

The first award a scout can earn when they join Cub Scouts is the Bobcat award. You can keep track of their progress by signing off requirements in the handbook. You may have been given a “Trail to Bobcat” flier to keep track of his progress as well, but you will still need to sign off requirements in his handbook.

The Den Meeting
Your Cub Scout is in a single sex “den” with boys or girls in the same school grade. Dens meet meet weekly. They will complete requirements at den meetings and tracked, which are then recorded in your son’s/daughter's handbook. You can also work on requirements at home anytime and sign those off. Show the Den Leader your scouts handbook Once your Cub Scout has completed all of the Bobcat requirements, show the book to your Den Leader. The Den Leader will make arrangements to have the award presented at your pack meeting. The award is paid for out of the pack budget. Most pack budgets are funded by Scouts dues, selling popcorn,selling candy or other fundraising efforts.

The Pack Meeting
All of the Cub Scouts and their families get together once a month for a terrific night called “pack meeting”. It is a great idea to invite grandparents, family and friends to the pack meeting where your scout will receive their Bobcat, usually soon after joining.
