3 Things Cub Families Want

by Mike Newman


Here are 3 things that Cub Scout families want from their son’s pack:

1. Active Fun. Most parents will not bring their boys to Cub Scouts if they are not having fun. They just won’t. Make sure that the boys in your pack get to do games and other active fun stuff–preferably in the outdoors.

2. Well Organized. Parents like packs in which the activities are well planned and which have good communication between leaders and with scout families. They want to know that there is a plan for what the pack will be doing and that the plan has been well communicated. Email, phone calls, schedules, and newsletters all help with communication and organization.

3. Advancements. Boys should be earning their rank badges as the year progresses, and they should receive recognition for the advancements they have earned. There should be a clear procedure (which gets carried out) for who in the pack is responsible for recording advancements, for turning in the required paperwork, and for presenting the badges at the appropriate time.
