Scout Me In ... Join Pack 631!

Scout Me In!  Welcome to Pack 631, Sponsored by Woodward Academy!  This year everyone is still fired up and ready for Pack 631 to go camping and hiking and biking and fishing and trailblazing and more!  Last year, Pack 631 had a great October Campout on the lake, did Winter Rockclimb Overnighting at Stone Summit, Pinewood Derby, did more spring camping in "Yurts", and biked and hiked and explored many other wild places. 

Girls in Cub Scouting!  Yes, we are open to girls joining us, with adult female leaders to help support them.  And kindergarten kids too.  

What Wild activities will we plan next?  Stay tuned for details here on the website and "like us" on our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/Pack631.  There's a lot that we might do, if Every Parent Leads and helps out ...

WA Parent Goals for Raising Children

Posted on Jan 16 2020 - 9:39am

Seen on Twitter, from the feed of Eric Mitchell (@PSPrincipalWA): "Ideas shared by parents during Parent University about some of our goals as a parent to teach our children. You can see why we say it takes a village. Proud to be a part of this village. I see so much of this being addressed in the course of our day." 

See the great list attached ... and how it lines up with what a child can experience and develop in a program that teaches to be "Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent".

Youth Protection Training is Good for Parents to View

Posted on Jan 8 2020 - 11:27am

Youth Protection Training of the Scouting program is found at https://my.scouting.org/, where you can set up a profile and take the course (in three main modules).  This is important stuff for parents know and understand.  Not just for Scouting, but in your life with your kids. 

Be A Leader -- Someone Needs to Be a Cubmaster!

Posted on Jan 8 2020 - 11:27am

Adults are encouraged to Register as Leaders or Committee Members (cost included in your Scout's dues, and you get "Scouting Magazine"), and adults who will have a Den or Pack Leadership role need to Register.  Being Cubmaster does not mean "do everything" - because Every Parent Helps, or Every Parent Needs to Help.  To register as a leader if you are not a currently registered Pack 631 leader who has maintained Youth Protection Training current (every two years), which you take at https://my.scouting.org/:  

  1. Click this link.
  2. It will ask whether you're registering for yourself (as an adult volunteer) or for your child, so for Adult Registration click "Start" under "Adult".   
  3. That takes you to a series of pages for Basic and Background Information (the BSA runs background checks), so follow the prompts, enter the information, set up a "My.Scouting" account, and checkout and pay for your BSA Registration Fee through the remainder of this Calendar Year. 
  4. If you do not have a current BSA registration number with current -- within two years -- "Youth Protection Training", as shown at https://my.scouting.org/, your Adult Application will prompt you to complete "Youth Protection Training" by taking the course at https://my.scouting.org/).  If you do it online now (or have done it before on the same my.scouting.org profile), you should sync up right away in the online Adult Application.  If you want to print the YPT Certificate, at the end of the Course it will ask you for your "Council", and ours is "Atlanta Area Council", then enter your name on the final page, and 631 as the unit number, and follow the instructions to Print the Certificate.

There is no "dues" cost to being a Leader; Leader fees are covered in the Pack Dues, so contact the webmaster for a reimbursement. To take Youth Protection Training On Line, see our Adult Leader Training Page for how to access https://my.scouting.org/.
