Parents

In Cub Scouting, boys and their families have fun and adventure in a program that builds character and instills values. Cub Scouting embraces the values of citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility. These values come to boys in all parts of the Cub Scout program – all while they’re having a great time with their friends and families.

We would like to inform you of a few things about Pack 3512. The Pack is run locally by adults who have volunteered their time and energy to bring the Cub Scouting program to the boys involved in Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America have trained us in how they expect the program to be handled. The rules governing us are followed by all Scout Packs and Troops. We work towards teaching the boys about the surrounding world through activity badges and Achievements that are listed in the different books of ranks.

First graders are Tiger Cub Scouts. They explore 5 achievements with den activities, family activities, and a “Go See It” outings. There are also many Electives to try their hand at. Tigers have an adult partner who attends all den and pack activities with their Tiger Scout. The adult partners take turns helping with den meetings.

The 2nd graders are exploring the world and earning their rank as a Wolf in the Cub Scouting program. They complete 12 Achievements plus have many Electives to earn. Parents are encouraged to give a hand as often as they can with different parts of the program.

The Bear rank is earned by 3rd graders. They will earn 12 of 24 Achievements plus have a range of Electives to work on. They are getting ready for the next step in Scouting by learning how to safely handle a jackknife.

Boys in the 4th and 5th grade are being prepared for Boy Scouts through the Webelos program. These Scouts will participate in more camp outs and other outdoor activities. The Webelos work on Activity badges which give them a taste of the Boy Scout Merit badge program.

Dens consist of boys of the same age. All the different age group dens comprise the Pack. Most dens meet every other week for 1 to 1 ½ hours. Tigers meet once a month. Once a month all the dens and their families get together at a Pack meeting to receive the awards they have been working on. The Pack meetings have different activities going on that promote good sportsmanship and are loaded with fun.

The uniform requirement for Cub Sccouts (Tiger, Wolf and Bear): Cub Scouts need to have the blue uniform shirt with the appropriate patches sewn on. (Patriots Path Coucil patch on top of left sleeve and the numerals 6 and 0 directly under the Patriots Path Council patch) The appropriate (Tiger, Wolf or Bear) cap, neckerchief and neckerchief slide.

The uniform requirements for Webelo Scouts: Webelos Scouts should wear the tan uniform shirt, Webelos cap, neckerchief and neckerchief slide.  All boys should have their own book in the rank they are working on as some things need to be completed at home. The boys need to bring these books to every den meeting.
