Get involved, your Cub Scout will get the most from scouting if you are involved as a parent.
ATTEND DEN MEEETINGS
Come join in the fun with your Cub Scout and offer help. Our organization is run by volunteers like you.
Scouting is an activity you do with your child (in Cub scouting). We’ll find you an appropriate role in the Committee (in Boys Scouts, Sea Scouts, Venturing units). However, to really get most from the experience alongside your child, you’ll have to actively contribute towards this.
DEN LEADER, ASSISTANT DEN LEADER, COMMITTEE PLANNING
You can volunteer to be a Den Leader, Assistant Den Leader, or join the Pack Committee. Our den leaders and assistant den leaders plan and carry out the den meetings, with help from other parents and leaders. Our Pack committee runs the show behind the scenes with positions such as treasurer, advancement, secretary, committee chair, etc. There are many resources to help new den leaders and committee members.
PARENT PLANNING MEETINGS – LEAD ADVENTURES
Attending the monthly Parent Planning meeting will keep you informed about upcoming Pack activities, and give you an opportunity to be a bigger part of the success of our Pack. There are many ways to help out, and most jobs are both easy to do and rewarding. Don’t let us fool you, we can always use help.
DISTRICT ROUND TABLES
Each month our local district hosts a meeting called “Roundtable”. This idea sharing forum is a great place to meet other adult leaders, learn about upcoming events, hear about training opportunities, and get helpful suggestions.
Round tables exist to provide information, capture information, offer current program training, and provide networking opportunities.
Roundtables are a collaborative effort coordinated by Unit Service (commissioners) and supported by commissioned professionals and district operations (Program, Membership, and Finance). Active participation by all roundtable participants increases the value of attendance for everyone.
