Summer Camp 2018 ... More Information ... Who is Going?

Posted on Feb 21 2018 - 7:18pm

Summer Camp is the most fun thing you and your son can do during Cub Scout Years.  See this Cub Scout Summer Camp information.  Updated information shows four 3 night options (a bit of a shift in dates: July 2-5, July 6-9, July 10-13, July 13-16).   To help see who wants to go when, complete this simple survey to note when you might go (this is not a commitment or payment, just an expression of interest).  At this point, other than Fifth Graders (who will go with the Boy Scout Troop to Boy Scout Summer Camp), we have only one response, a third grade family with interest for one of the two middle sessions -- let's get some other interest, and families can Talk n Text.  Scroll down the Pack Events Photo Gallery for some pix from Summer Camp past -- your Pack Trainer is amused that one of the "cover kids" from a 2006 campout, soon to be a college grad, called him today for a 30 minute chat about career choices.  They grow up fast ... help 'em grow up good! 

Pinewood Derby Fun ...

Scouts, Siblings, Parents.  Liked your Car?  Enter it!  Want to upgrade it?  Go ahead.  Dad wants to race?  Sure, you pays your money, you take your chances (that Mom's car is faster).  Anyone can enter.

News Flash: Being "Cubmaster" Doesn't Mean "Do Everything Josh Did" ...

Posted on Feb 14 2018 - 2:51pm

From your Pack Trainer (and a former Cubmaster):   Seriously.  Want to be Cubmaster?  Do what you do!  Want to be "not Cubmaster"?  Fine ... Help as you can -- do what you do!  Because ...  Being "Cubmaster" Doesn't Mean "Do Everything Josh Did".  Yes, you're very lucky that Josh did so much ... but as parents and others step up into Pack Roles (see this page on the left hand menu) and Den Level Roles (see this page), and share the community effort of a terrific program of youth activities, values, fun, action, outdoors, adventure and more ... it all can all get done.     

University of Scouting, February 17, Life University

Not just for "leaders", but parents and helpers too ... because there's a lot of specialized stuff, like Super Summer Programs, STEM for Cub Scouts, How to Teach the Whittling Chip, Cub Scout Racing (Derbies – not just Pinewood), Cub Scout Outdoor Cooking, Cub Games, Rocket Time!, Fishing, Including Scouts with Special Needs, Cold Weather Camping, Iron Chef and more. See the Course Catalog and sign up at http://www.atlantabsa.org/training/supplemental-training/university-of-scouting/6962.  Didn't register?  Don't worry ... they take "walk ins".  Includes the Pack 631 Trainer with the "Team Training" that covers all roles -- and he'll definately take any Pack 631 walk ins!! 

Update on Girls in Cub Scouting ...

Posted on Jan 31 2018 - 6:14pm

We've posted some Announcements about this in the last six months, and now it's happening around the USA:  here's a quick news clip about Girls in Cub Scouting: http://www.khq.com/clip/14085943/first-girl-joins-spokane-cub-scouts, with observations about how it's a great option for some girls and families, and can (along with Girl Scouts) provide more Scouting options for more kids.  And here's a clip showing what girls can do, Ninja Style (gotta wonder what boys and current Cub Scout dens have an obstacle course like that one for Tiger Elective Adventure Good Knights, or Wolf Elective Adventure Paws of Skill, or Webelos Required Adventure Stronger, Faster, Higher ?!?!)
