The adult leaders of Pack 177 do their best to provide a quality program. It must be kept in mind, though, that they are volunteers and have many other obligations outside of Cub Scouting. We expect every parent to help the Pack in some capacity.The most important job is Den Leader, but there are many other areas where your help in running the Pack is needed and appreciated. For more information about how you can help Pack 177, scroll down. Together, we can create the best possible Scouting experience for our children.
The following guidelines are designed to help you and your child get the most out of Cub Scouting:
- Be on Time. Please arrive at all meetings and events on time. Also, unless arrangements have been made with your Den Leader, please be prompt to pick-up your child from Den meetings.
- Read Your Handbook. Support your child’s involvement in Cub Scouting by becoming familiar with advancement requirements. If you read through the handbook, you will be better prepared to support their efforts to “do their best.”
- Report an Absence Ahead of Time. Den Leaders spend a lot of time preparing for Den and Pack activities that include your child. If your child will be unable to attend a Pack or Den meeting, please let your Den Leader know as soon as possible.
- Reinforce Good Conduct During Meetings. Parents share with Cub Scout leaders responsibility for ensuring proper conduct by their boys. Please stress that good behavior is part of being a Cub Scout, and set a good example by being respectful of others during Pack meetings.
- Support Good Turns. The Pack and Dens will provide opportunities for children to give service to the community. We ask that you support these opportunities for your children to learn the art of giving.
- Be in Uniform. Please make sure that your child is in uniform for all Cub Scout meetings and events. Support accomplishments by seeing that advancement patches promptly become part of the uniform.
- Participate. Your child will get more out of Cub Scouting if you get involved! You are expected to volunteer in some way during the year. You should also take your share in organizing Den meetings and working with the Den Leader of your child's Den. Cub Scouting is only successful when parents participate actively. Plus, IT'S FUN!
