Your Cub Scout will get the most from scouting if you are involved as a parent.
Go to Den and Pack Meetings
Parents are always welcome at den meetings and pack meetings. Come join in the fun with your Cub Scout! …maybe even offer to help out a bit here and there.
Be a Den Leader, an Assistant Den Leader, or join the Pack Committee
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.
Go to Parent Planning Meetings and volunteer to help with a Pack Activity
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.
Go to District Roundtable!
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.
