For over 100 years scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Sout Law. Today these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Souting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. Through the Cub Scout program the Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to
- Try new things
- Provide service to others
- Build self-confidence
- Reinforce ethical standards
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.
Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.
Finally, and perhaps more importantly, scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of parents who have chosen to participate with their sons in our Cub Scout program. We welcome boys who are in:
- Kindergarden (Lions Cubs)
- 1st grade (Tiger Cubs)
- 2nd grade (Wolf Cubs)
- 3rd grade (Bear cubs)
- 4th grade (Webelos I)
- 5th grade (Webelos II)
I would be glad to share more information with you about our exciting program. Please feel free to contact me with your questions and to find out how to join.
Your friend in Scouting,
Cubmaster, Pack #106
