“This is an exciting time of year for us,” said Chris Shelby, Scout Executive for the region. “We meet new boys and girls and get to introduce them to the adventure of Scouting.”
Join Night is a series of Scouting events across the region aimed at new members. The evening offers demonstrations of Scouting activities, information on what Scouting entails, and introduces families to the local scout leaders.
Great for the Family
Boys and girls grades K-5 can join Cub Scout Packs. Parents no longer need to worry about driving their kids to multiple after-school activities. Scouting is an all-inclusive activity that all family members can enjoy. Parents can join in on Scouting activities with their kids too.
Cub Scouts work through ranks by achieving goals and learning about outdoor exploration, STEM topics—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and camping out together. Families often do the activities together.
Scouting Builds Character
Scouting is proven to make positive difference in a child’s life. Children who participate in some form of Scouting show an increase in cheerfulness, helpfulness, kindness, obedience, and trustworthiness.
Check your child’s school bag for a fun, interactive packet. Bring the “Secret Message” to your local Join Night for a chance to win a free Cub Scout uniform.
