Cub Scouts - Informational meeting July 7
Cub Scouts is for ALL boys in 1st-5th grade and focuses on things like citizenship, outdoor activities, environmental awareness, health and safety, and community. Cub Scouting has been around for over 100 years and there are 22 Cub Scout Packs in Middle Tennessee Council.
In Cub Scouts, boys are organized by grade level into “Dens”, each of which works towards earning a rank advancement over the scouting year by completing different projects and learning about a variety of different things – things like how to maintain your bicycle, visiting a fire station, basic first aid, and going camping. The collective group of Dens at the site are called a “Pack” and meet monthly to hand out awards to the boys and recognize their accomplishments, and to do larger, group activities.
In order for Cub Scouting to succeed, it requires the leadership of volunteer adults. You don’t need any background in Scouting or any prior knowledge; you simply need to be willing to help direct your son’s Cub Scout Den or Pack. There are lots of local volunteers to help with questions, organization and ideas.
If you are interested in getting Cub Scouts started this fall at Waverly Belmont, please come to an informational meeting Tuesday July 7th at 7pm at Zeitgeist Gallery – 516 Hagan St (near Greer Stadium). Mark Bixler, a volunteer with the district, former Cub Scout leader at Glendale, current Assistant Scoutmaster with Boy Scout troop 93, and Eagle Scout, will be leading the discussion and working to get Waverly Belmont “set up” for the fall. No childcare is provided at this meeting – the content is intended for parents.
If you are interested in scouting but cannot attend, please email Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org
to get on the email list for the potential Pack.
