Pack 20 Cub Scouts: Welcome
Pack 20 Cub Scouts
The Cub Scout program is an excellent way to introduce boys to scouting, and for families to enjoy fun activities together.
Scouting for All Ages
By joining the Cub Scouts, you've taken your first step on the Scouting trail. Many people stay in Scouting, one way or another, for many years. Some stay for a lifetime.
Boys of different ages have different ranks in Cub Scouting. As you go from Tiger Cub (age 7) to Webelos Scout (age 10), you learn new things and new skills that you use to meet new challenges as you get older.
- Tiger Cubs. First-grade boys join a Tiger Cub den, where each boy works with an adult partner on the requirements to earn his Tiger Cub badge.
- Wolf Cub Scouts. Second-grade boys graduate into a Wolf den. They go to weekly den meetings on their own, but their families still help them work on the requirements for the Wolf badge.
- Bear Cub Scouts. Boys in the third grade are members of a Bear den. They also work with their families to do the requirements for the Bear badge, but boys this old have enough knowledge and skill to take on more of the work by themselves.
- Webelos Scouts. Boys in the fourth and fifth grades become Webelos Scouts. Webelos Scouts do more advanced activities to get ready to graduate into Boy Scouting.
Where you begin in Cub Scouting depends on your age at the time you join. If you join when you're in first grade, you will begin as a Tiger Cub. If you do not join until the third grade, you'll begin as a Bear Cub Scout. You won't have to go back and earn the Tiger Cub and Wolf badges.
The values and skills learned in Cub Scouts, as well as great memories and friendships, will remain for years to come, perhaps a lifetime.
If you would like more information on Cub Scouting, visit our Council Link, or the Boy Scouts of America Link. If you would like to join Pack 20, or want to see what Cub Scouting is about ,visit our monthy Pack Meetings, listed on our calender, at the United Methodist Church in Camden.
Please note that the October 24th Pack meeting will be at the Camden Presbyterian Church (in the basement). We had to relocate from the UMC due to a conflict on this date (they have a Harvest Dinner!).
We will still meet at 6 pm and have a special guest: The Utica Zoomobile! It is sure to be a fun time and Scouts are encouraged to bring a friend!
