When your son earns his Bobcat badge, he learns the Law of the Pack. One of these laws states “The Cub Scout Helps the Pack Go”. Throughout the year there are banquets, fund-raisers, Scout shows,parades, derbies, hiking trips, and many other activities and functions. Ambitious as they are, a Cub Scout still needs your help in implementing the program and thereby giving us the chance to keep our promise in the part of the Law that states “The Pack Helps the Cub Scout Grow”. Remember, the Pack is all of us working together... leaders, parents, and Scouts. There are a lot more parents than leaders or scouts.
Unlike other programs your son might enroll in, Cub Scouting involves the whole family, no matter what size or parental make-up exists in the home. In Tigers, you are your son’s Adult Partner (aka Akela) who must be present at all meetings and outings. In Wolves and Bears, you are Akela who assists the Cub Scout in many adventure badges and electives away from the Den Meetings, the wise leader of the tribe of Webelos, and the final judge of your son’s efforts. At the Webelos rank, you are the Adventure Badge counselors that could help influence a boy’s career direction.
Throughout the year you will be asked to assist on different committees, and at different events. Please volunteer freely, You will find it a rewarding experience, and one in which you and your son will remember for a lifetime.
