Additional Cub Scout Info

Why Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouting's strength is that it is a well-rounded program positively affecting every area of a boy's life. Cub Scouting encourages boys to achieve a deeper appreciation of others, including peers, parents, and other adults. Early in their Cub Scouting experience, boys learn the value of serving others. Cub Scouting provides boys with a sense that they are important as individuals. They learn that their Scouting family cares about what happens to them. Cub Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. The Cub Scout program is family-based and will strengthen the bond between boys and their parents or adult partners.

Cub Scouting Teaches Your Son
  • Confidence, through recognition by adults
  • Belonging, by building friendships with other boys at his school
  • The value of family, by fostering quality family time for boys and their adult partners
  • Social skills, through interacting with other youth and adults
  • Good decision making, by instilling values of helping others
  • About his community, by participating in field trips and other activities

How Cub Scouting Works
Each Cub Scout is part of a Den of other boys from his grade. Each den has 6-8 boys and meets twice each month for about one hour. Once a month, all the Dens from a school come together for a Pack meeting where boys are recognized for their accomplishments from the last month. Each month one other Cub Scout outing usually takes place for the boys: a field trip, outdoor activity, or attending a larger Cub Scout event.

What's Expected of Us As A Family?
Cub Scouting is a program that many families do together. Boys who are Cub Scouts should attend meetings and events with a family member or other adult who is important in your son's life. As a family, you will grow closer through the activities you do at Cub Scouts. Siblings often attend many Cub Scout meetings and activities. Many Cub Scout families are active in a variety of other activities as well; Cub Scouting is a program that can fit into a busy schedule as not every outing or meeting must be attended. There are ways that family members can get involved as volunteers if they wish. Volunteer training is available for adults.

How Do I Get My Son Involved?
It's best to attend a scheduled "School Night for Scouting" Cub Scout sign-up meeting, listed on the front of this flyer. If you can't attend, you can still join though. Contact the phone number on the front of the flyer or call the Scout Office at 715-832-6671.

Fall Cub Camp
All New Cub Scouts, parents, and siblings are invited to Fall Cub Camp scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2016 at "Cub World – Camp Phillips", near Rice Lake, WI. New Cub Scouts are invited to attend at no cost and participate in a day of fun including BB Guns, Archery, Crafts, Games, Outdoor Activities, and more.

New Scout Pinewood Derby Race & Free Pinewood Derby Car
All new Scouts are also invited to participate in the New Scout Pinewood Derby in the month of October. All boys will receive a FREE Pinewood Derby kit when they sign up for Cub Scouts at their School Night for Scouting!

What If I Cannot Attend the School Night at My Son's School?
Some families may be unable to attend the School Night for Scouting. To get signed up without attending a School Night for Scouting, go ahead and contact the Scout Office at 715-832-6671. From there you'll speak with a District Executive for your area who will help you get enrolled. A great thing about the Cub Scout program is that boys can get caught up very quickly if they are joining after the first few meetings have been held. Families are invited to join Cub Scouting at any time.
