3 Page 3 What can we expect from Scouting? Scouting is fun with a purpose. Scouting is: FUN Continuing education outside of the classroom. Developing good character and growing spiritually. Habits and attributes of good citizenship. Good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in mind and body. Getting along with others and being respectful. Developing new interests and skills with a sense of personal achievement. Being helpful, courteous and kind and to always do one s best. Preparing to be Boy Scouts FUN AND EXCITEMENT IN ALL THAT WE DO. Scouting reinforces the pillars of character taught in our schools through the Character Counts program. Core Values Citizenship Honesty Compassion Perseverance Cooperation Positive attitude Courage Resourcesfulness Faith Respect Health and Fitness Responsibility

4 Page 4 Why should we choose Scouting? Sports and all kinds of other activities can teach teamwork and certain skills, but Scouting adds more to a boy. Scouting compliments every other activity because it offers a well-rounded program that develops character traits that last a lifetime such as: Strong personal values Positive sense of self-worth and usefulness Caring and nurturing relationships with parents, other adults and peers A desire to learn Productive use of time Social adeptness Physical and mental fitness How is Cub Scouting Organized? Boys are divided by grade into the ranks of Scouting. Each grade level is further divided into groups of six to eight boys called a den. Each den must have a minimum of two adult leaders and may also have assistance from a Boy Scout called a Den Chief. Each grade has its own handbook with an age-appropriate program outlined. The group of dens for your area is called a pack. Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of the Cubmaster and pack committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the charter organization.

5 Page 5 THE RANKS OF CUB SCOUTING: First Grade, Tiger: Six to eight boy/adult teams in a group. Each den meets weekly. Each boy/adult team takes a turn at planning and hosting meetings and outings. A Tiger den leader is a parent who helps coordinate the activities and ensures that each family has an opportunity to lead a meeting of boys in the den. Second Grade, Wolf: Each den has four to eight boys in the group. The den meets weekly under the leadership of the den leader and assistant, usually parents of boys in the den. The Wolf handbook is the guide for achievements and electives that the Scout earns. Third Grade, Bear: The program for second graders is continued in third grade with a new handbook and program geared towards the third grader. Many of the activities are family-based. Fourth and Fifth Grade, Webelos: The Webelos program is a transitional program between Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Each chapter of the handbook is a separate subject for which activity pins are earned. Dens meet in groups of four to eight boys weekly with Webelos leaders. Camping and joint activities with a Boy Scout Troop are recommended in the second year. The Arrow of Light Award is the highest award earned by a Cub Scout and is usually presented at graduation in February of the fifth-grade year.

6 Page 6 Scouting is for your family There are many ways that you can get involved: Be a Den Leader Den leaders are adults who lead the group of boys throughout the year at weekly den meetings and monthly pack meetings. Be a Committee Member Adults who support the pack with administrative duties such as planning pack meetings, fundraising, organizing events, managing advancement and recognition, etc. Be a Parent Helper Assist den or pack leaders in providing support for the Scouts. This could be driving on a field trip, taking attendance, making telephone calls, etc. It is important for you to find time to spend with your son who wants to be a Cub Scout. Being a leader and being active as a Scouting parent is rewarding. Your time, talent, and efforts make Scouting a quality program for all the boys. Don t worry, we ll train you! Fast Start Training: a short video overview of the Cub Scout program. Basic Leader Training: Three sessions of in-depth training for your responsibilities in the den or pack. Literature: The Boy Scouts of America has many publications and video programs to help you with your Scouting job. Professional Assistance: The Mid-Iowa Council has a trained, professional staff to help get you started.
