The Seminole County Cub Scouts organization is looking for new recruits. “We will be having a sign up for Cub scouting soon. Elementary school parents, please be watching for an informative membership flyer to come home from school with your child,” commented local Scoutmaster Mitch Royals.
In Cub Scouting boys and girls are grouped together based on grade level to form dens. Cub Scouts in Kindergarten are the Lions, first graders are the Tigers, second graders are the Wolves, third graders are the Bears, fourth graders are Webelos, and and fifth graders are Arrow Light.
Each den meets together to have fun and age-appropriate trips and activities. Some of the activities dens have participated in the past include camping trips, nature hikes, visits to Donalsonville News office, the fire station, the police station, touring the EMT ambulances, and meeting Smokey the Bear at the forestry office. All these activities allow the Cub Scouts to earn recognition, learn to work together, and to do their best. All activities include the parents’ involvement.
After a monthly meeting of each den, all the dens come together once monthly for a Pack meeting. Each den receives recognition for the things they accomplished during the previous month.
Cub Scout are encouraged to live by the Cub Scout motto, Do your best; they learn to apply the Scout Oath daily, and they are instructed how understand and live by the 12 points of the Scout Law.
For additional advantages of becoming a Cub Scout visit Scouting.org and look at “Benefits of Cub Scouting”.
Royals added, “You will see lots of research that demonstrates the benefits to a child by being part of Cub Scouting. I am certain that all of us agree that for our young people to learn about helping others and doing their best is important. Would you be willing to help?”
