A Help For Scouters

I have been a "Cub Scout Mom" for many years. Starting out in the Wolf Den and moving throughout the ranks, skipping only the Cub Master Position, I am currently the Cub Committee Chair and I can tell you I love Cub Scouts! It teaches young boys such great values and skills that will help to carry them throughout their lives.

For those of you who are Scout Volunteers, please take this opportunity very seriously. You have the opportunity to make a difference in a boys life like no other teacher they will ever have. There is no where in school that they will ever learn teamwork, camaraderie or love as they will in a cub scout pack. They will never learn to care for their environment or themselves in school like they will in Scouting and they will never learn in school to care for others the way they will learn to do so in the Scouting program. And congratulations, you have the opportunity to teach them all that and more and have a great time doing it.

I know not everyone has the ability to go to Roundtable offered through their councils, but on the Scouting website they have a great new resource for leaders. It is called Cubcast and it is an audio podcast featuring a variety of how-to and information topics for Cub Scout leaders and parents.
