How Can You Help?

The most important help that you, as a parent, can give your child is to work with them on their Cub Scouting activities. The Scout Handbook is full of age-appropriate activities that you will enjoy doing together at home. When he completes an activity or project, it is your responsibility to sign their book to verify that he has done their best. And then it is all-important for you to attend the monthly pack meeting with them, so that you can celebrate their achievement. Your role as a parent is the secret to a successful Cub Scouting program!

The den and the pack also rely on parent participation to run a successful program.

Cub Scouting operates through volunteer leadership. Consider volunteering as a member of the pack leadership team. Volunteer leaders are an example of
Scouting’s principle of service to others. By volunteering in Scouting, you are also giving your child the gift of your time. What could be more valuable?
