Parents’ Guide for new Cub Scout families Cascade Pacific Council, Boy Scouts of America 2009 Why Join Cub Scouts? • Your time is valuable. Today’s families, more than ever, struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your son to do things together. • Your son needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Through this sense of belonging he builds self-esteem and learns to get along with others. As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these timeless values into fun and educational activities since 1910. • In a society where your son is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouting teaches him to “do his best” and be helpful to others. • Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your son. But we know that boys do not join Cub Scouting to get their character built. Boys join because it is fun! Cub Scouting’s Mission It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and in other ways prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to install are based on those found in the Cub Scout Motto and Law of the Pack. 1 How do we join Cub Scouting? We’ll help your family join Cub Scouts today! Here is all you need to do: First, pick a Cub Scout Pack in your area. Second, complete a youth membership application for your son. Third, complete an adult application. Fourth, pay registration fees and subscribe now to Boys’ Life Maga- zine, a magazine for all boys! 2009 2010 Youth Registration Fee $10 $15 _______ Adult Registration Fee $10 $15 _______ Boys’ Life $12 $12 _______ For a year of Scouting $32 $42 _______ (Fees are prorated for each month) Your application and fees may be given to your new pack or taken to any of the Cascade Pacific Council Scout Offices. For more information go to www.JoinCubScouts.com How Does Cub Scouting Work? One unique thing about Cub Scouting is that you, his family, join in on the program with your son, and you will help him along the way. The family is the basis of Cub Scouting. Cub Scouts exist to support your family and help enrich your family time together. Boys have a different handbook at each level, with suggested activi- ties that are age-appropriate for their developmental level. As your boy advances through these books by working on activities with you, he will earn badges and other recognition that he can wear on his uniform. Your son’s success in Cub Scouting depends on you! The Cub Scout program takes place at two levels. Your son will be part of a den; a small group of boys in the same grade level who meet weekly. All dens from grade one through five make up a pack. Once a month, the dens, with their families, are together at a pack meeting, where boys show off the new skills they have learned during the month and are recognized for the badges they have earned. 2 Dens Dens are where most of the action takes place in Cub Scouting. Dens consist of 4 to 8 boys in the same grade and normally meet on a weekly basis. The adult volunteer who runs the den is called a Den Leader. The highlight of a den’s year is attending summer camp together! Being a Den Leader or an Assistant Den Leader is a great way for a parent to be involved. Boys who have graduated from Kindergarten or in the first grade are in the Tiger Den. 1st Grade Tiger Cubs work on earning the ‘Tiger’ badge. Each Tiger Cub needs an adult partner. See page 16 for more information on Tiger Cubs. Boys in the second grade are in the Wolf Den. 2nd Grade Wolves work on earning the ‘Wolf’ badge. See page 17 for more information on the Wolf Den. Boys in the third grade are in the Bear Den. 3rd Grade Bears work on earning the ‘Bear’ badge. See more information on Bears on page 18. Boys in the fourth grade are in the Webelos Den. 4th Grade Webelos work on earning the ‘Webelos Badge’. See more information on Webelos on page 19. Boys in the fifth grade are in the second year Webelos Den, commonly called Webelos Twos. 5th Grade Webelos in the Webelos 2 den work on earning the “Arrow of Light” award and check out local Boy Scout Troops to join during the school year. See more information on Webelos on Page 20. 3 Dens Den Leader__________________________________________________ Phone_________________ Email________________________________ Den Meeting Date________________________ Time________________ Location_____________________________________________________ Dens are a great place for boys to make new friends and an even better place to invite all of their good friends to come be with them. During each Den meeting boys gener- ally work on a craft, learn a new skill, play a game and have a snack. Dens sometimes also go on day trips to do a service project or have a special fun activity. Fun and communication are key elements to having a great den experience. Den Leaders will have a calendar to share with parents to let them know what is coming up. Parents are always welcome to talk with their son’s Den Leader and to go to Den Meetings. Start planning now for camp next summer. You can sign up for summer camp starting in November. 4 The Pack Our Pack Number is: Pack__________ All of the dens together make a Pack. Every Pack has a Pack Number; Example: Pack 123. Packs are run under the direction of the Pack Committee. Every parent is invited to become a member of the pack committee. The committee has the responsibility to select the Cubmaster and Den Leaders, and to help them be successful working with the kids. The Pack Committee Committee Chairman_________________________________________________ Phone_________________ Email________________________________________ Committee Meeting Date____________________ Time______________________ Location____________________________________________________________ There are many positions on a pack committee. Pack Committees meet once a month. Parents are invited to get involved and help out in projects they are interested in. Here is a list of possible committee positions: Transportation Website Supplies Snacks Service Projects Finance Camping Family Camp Religious Awards Advancement Training: Pack Trainer Blue and Gold Banquet Communications Pack Growth Coordinator Pinewood Derby Race Pack Finances Each pack is responsible for their own pack finances. The Cascade Pacific Council offers two fund-raisers each year to help packs have a great program! The popcorn sale is in the fall (October) and the Candy Sale takes place in the winter (February) to help boys earn their way to camp. It is easy to fund your pack’s expenses for an entire year by selling Trail’s End Popcorn. Packs make a list of all the activities they want to do for the coming year, then packs figure out the expenses for each activity. From there a pack will set a total pack goal and a goal for each family. Many packs fund their whole year selling popcorn and have money left over. Go to www.trails-end.com or www.cpcbsa.org; click on fundraising for more information. 5 The Pack Cubmaster________________________________________________ Phone_________________ Email______________________________ Pack Meeting Date________________________ Time_____________ Location__________________________________________________ Pack Meeting Once a month every Pack has a Pack Meeting. Pack meetings are a great party for the whole family. Pack Meetings are run by the Cubmaster. Generally each month will have a theme. Boys will do activities in their dens leading up to the Pack Meeting. Boys also receive awards at the Pack Meeting. Pack Activities There are so many fun things to do with your pack that it is hard, if not impossible, to list them all. Here is a start: Pinewood Derby Races Scout Night at the Portland Trail Blazers Scouting for Food (food drive) Family Camp Goodwill/Good Turn (clothing drive) Tree Planting Timbers Night Saturday at the park PGE Campout at Beavers Game Scout Night at Winter Hawks Beach Clean Up Scout Night at Lumberjacks Overnight Camp-in at OMSI and submarine tour Almost Overnighter at OMSI for Tigers and Wolves Tubing at Winter Lodges Blue & Gold Banquet Space Derby 6 Chartered Organization Chartered Organization_______________________________________________ Chartered Organization Representative_________________________________ Every Cub Scout Pack belongs to an organization with interests similar to those of the BSA. This organization, which might be a church, school, community organization, or group of interested citizens, is chartered by the BSA to use the Scouting program. This chartered organization provides a suitable meeting place, adult leadership, supervision and opportunities for a healthy Scouting life for the boys under its care. A member of the organization, the Chartered Organization Representative, acts as a liaison between the pack, the organization and the District.

The District is a geographic boundary. All of the Cub Scout Packs and other Scouting groups in the district boundary are part of the district. Each district has a name and a number. Dis- tricts are run by a volunteer committee much like the pack com- mittee. Districts exist to help Packs be successful. Mentoring, training, special events, information about camping, help with advancement, help with the popcorn and candy sale, help with ‘Friends of Scouting’, helping recruit new adult leaders and new kids are some of the services provided by the District. What is a District Executive? A District Executive, commonly called a “D.E.” is a full-time employee of the Cascade Pacific Council, Boy Scouts of America. District Executives have three areas of emphasis: 1) Invite as many families as possible to join Scouting each year. 2) Once a family has joined Scouting, make sure they have the best experience possible. 3) Work to make sure Scouting will be here in the future. District Executives work with volunteers to achieve these important missions. District Ex- ecutives are also available to help resolve any difficult question or situation a Pack may encounter. What is Roundtable? Roundtable is a monthly party! All of the adult volun- teers in the district gather once a month for Round- table. Information about upcoming events is provided along with hands-on demonstrations on how to do the following month’s Den and Pack Meetings. 8 Bobcat Requirements The first badge every boy earns is his Bobcat. Boys can work on badges at home with their family. You and your son can learn about Cub Scouting by earning his Bobcat together. Listed below are the requirements for Bobcat: 1. Learn and say the Cub Scout Promise and complete the Honesty Character Connection. Cub Scout Promise Character Connection: Honesty I (say your name), promise To do my best KNOW: Discuss these questions with your family: What is a promise?

Say the Law of the Pack. Tell what is means. Akela, pronounced (Ah-KAY-la) is a Scout name for a leader. Some of the people you might call Akela are your parents, your teacher, and your Cub Scout leader. The Law of the Pack The Cub Scout follows Akela. The Cub Scout helps the pack go. The pack helps the Cub Scout grow. The Cub Scout gives goodwill. 3. Tell what the word ‘Webelos’ means. The word Webelos (say WEE-buh-lows) has special meaning. Webelos is made up of the first letters of these words: “WE’ll BE LOyal Scouts.” Loyal means you keep your Cub Scout Promise. 9 Bobcat Requirements 4. Make the Cub Scout sign. Tell what it means. Make the sign with the right hand, hold- ing your arm straight up. The two fingers extended stand for the two points of the Cub Scout Promise - help and obey. Give the sign whenever you repeat the Cub Scout Promise or Law of the Pack. 5. Show the Cub Scout handshake. Tell what it means. When you shake hands with another Cub Scout, hold out your right hand as you would do for an ordinary handshake. But keep your elbow straight and place your first two fingers along the inside of the other Cub Scout’s wrist. This means both of you will help others and obey the Law of the Pack. 6. Say the Cub Scout Motto. Cub Scout Motto “Do Your Best.” 7. Give the Cub Scout salute. Tell What it means. Salute with your right hand. Hold your fingers as you do for the sign but with the first two fingers close together. Touch the tip of those fin- gers to your cap’s bill. If you aren’t wearing a hat, touch the forehead about your right eyebrow. Salute the U.S. flag during ceremonies. 8. With your parent or guardian, complete the Bobcat Requirements section of “How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide.” The Boy Scouts of America is dedicated to providing a safe environment for our children and protecting them from abuse of any kind. All volunteer leaders are expected to take “Youth Protection Training” which is available online at http://olc.Scouting.org. It is the expectation that there will always be at least two adults at any Scouting activity. In addition, in the front of each Cub Scout handbook there is a parent’s guide on protecting children with information for parents to review with their children. 10 Cascade Pacific Council What is the Cascade Pacific Council? Cascade Pacific Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving youth. The Cascade Pacific Council serves more than 48,000 youth in 18 counties of southwest Washington and northwest Oregon. This service area is divided into 20 Scouting districts staffed by approximately 14,000 adult mentors, and supported by 40 professional Scouters, 24 clerical staff, 12 Learning for Life teachers, and 7 full-time camp rangers. Council staff members work under the direction of the Council Executive Board, a group of dedicated volunteers who set the direction for the council much like a pack committee sets the direction of the pack. What is the National Council? The National Council is the Boy Scouts of America on the national level. The $10 registration fee goes directly to the National Council, where it is used to develop program materials like the Cub Scout Handbook and program materials for leaders. The National Council partners with other organizations to make sure Boy Scouts of America is current with relevant safety precautions and age appropriate activities. How is the Cascade Pacific Council Funded? The cost of providing the Scouting program to youth is offset by fund raising efforts in local communities. A gift of $150.00 can underwrite the Cascade Pacific Council’s expenses to provide Scouting to one youth for an entire year. Individuals, families, and organizations who are able to give are encouraged to support this great effort. 11 Services Provided by Cascade Pacific Council Support Council staff and district volunteers stand ready to assist pack and den leaders in any way needed. District vol- unteer teams are comprised of experienced adults who want to help you be successful with your boys. Training Cascade Pacific Council offers a wide variety of training and training opportunities for adult members, everything from online forms such as Fast Start to large events like the Cub Scout POW WOW! Membership Resources One of the primary missions of the council is to invite as many families as possible to join Scouting. The council provides many resources to help packs serve more families. Fun Activities Because of strong relationships with other private and community organizations the Cascade Pacific Council is able to offer many unique opportunities to its members; such as the Rose Garden Camp out with the Portland Trail Blazers. Fundraising Tools The Cascade Pacific Council supports packs by providing fundraising opportunities to help supplement a packs budget. The Popcorn Sale is in the fall and the Candy Sale is in the Spring. Camping Opportunities Cub Scouts get great day camps in every corner of the council, and also three exciting overnight camps! In addition to outstanding summer camps, the council operates fifteen unique properties, so there are plenty of places to go camping any month of the year. 12 Leader Information Serving in a leadership position in the pack can be a lot of fun and very rewarding.
