Cub Scout Parent Orientation and Leader Training -- Maybe this Saturday/Sunday (Sign Up Tonight)

Posted on Nov 29 2017 - 2:40pm

Your Pack Trainer (who helped create the advancement program in your boys' handbooks) is conducting two final 2017 Cub Scout Parent and Leader Orientations on Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3 -- or, he will, if we get enough signups by tonight (Wednesday, November 29):

Not a Leader, but have a Son: yes, this is for you … if you’re not a Den Leader, we’ll show how to help your Den and Pack do Cub Scouting so your son will be so proud of you and you have more fun … and if you are a Den Leader, congratulations and thanks (you’re a hero), and we’ll show how to do Den Adventures, and describe ways others can help you help kids.    

For current Leaders, yes, this is for you too … and bring some others, because we're about to have another transition to a new Leader Team (as Cubmaster Josh Flannigan and Chair Steve Thompson follow their Fifth Grade Scouts to Troop 631).  Keep It Simple Make It Fun:  Fewer meetings, more fun, more activity, more adventure, more memories

FAQs Updated ... to reflect the more active and "going places / doing things" program

Posted on Oct 25 2017 - 5:01pm

From the Pack Trainer (Bert Bender, former Cubmaster) ... the FAQs about Pack and Den and Cub Scout operations have been updated (as found in the About Us & How to Join page, and on the left side of the Website) ... because with the new (in 2015) Cub Adventures and Handbooks are so much more hands on and emphasize outdoor activities and games and hiking and sports and camping and such ... it sounds like most of our Dens will not do "after school" meetings but "weekend" activities at destinations around town. 

So a new FAQ is posted in the Den and Pack Activity Meeting page ... asking "So where can we go for Den Adventures if we're not having a "meeting" in a Classroom?"

Answer:  Anywhere that is “Fun for Kids, Fun for Families, and Safe”.  Pack 631 lives all over the metro area, so go all over the Metro Area … for “half day” or longer Den Adventures, find a place that fits what you want to do … that helps Keep It Simple and Makes It Fun.  Maybe the Civil Rights Museum, or the College Football Museum … maybe a State Park or Nature Center with the help of Ranger … maybe a youth fitness event or a sporting event … or a parade … or the Center for Puppetry Arts … or a Path Foundation Bike Trail (many of which are more "cub sized" than the Silver Comet).  

You could even do a “tour of playground”: let families share “their favorite playground”, and host a Den Adventure there … you can still do the Handbook work around a table or sitting on the ground as you rest after play, and have Scout-like openings and closings.  For a long list of super fun places … and some groups that will help you provide program … see the “Activities and Events around Atlanta” attachment at the District “Activity Ideas” page here.  Enjoy the

Breaking news: Girls in Cub Scouting ... Starting in 2018

Posted on Oct 11 2017 - 5:35pm

An early post-Trailblazer weekend eBlast, because of breaking news about the Scouting program.  See this announcement that says, among other things, that "Starting in the 2018 program year, families can choose to sign up their sons and daughters for Cub Scouts."  Yeah, it says also that  "Cub Scout dens will be single-gender — all boys or all girls", but feedback to the National office is that it is most likely that this will be often just a roster note, and that most dens will join together for all activities, to make it easier for parents to deliver the program.  Beyond 5th Grade, the announcement indicates that girls will be able to do Troop activities just like Boy Scouts, including earning the Eagle Scout Rank.  More on the nightly news, we are sure ... and more this afternoon on this Official BSA Blog.  And this fact sheet release and this FAQ release.
