What Does the Registration Fee Pay For?

Posted on Jan 22 2015 - 9:25pm

You may be wondering the $60 fee covers and why we need fundraising.  Well, here is the answer. There is insurance for events through the Boy Scouts of America and a subscription to a year of Boy’s Life magazine.  Your son is also provided with a Scout manual, Quality Unit Patch, Rank Badges and cards, and up to 5 Belt Loops and Pins. At graduation, he will receive a new neckerchief plus parent and year participation pins.  There are lots of general needs for the Pack program, also. These include training for our Leaders, Den books, charts and Progress Beads, ranks, awards, certificates, belt loops, copying, craft materials for Pack meetings as necessary (glue, glitter, paper, scissors, markers, etc.), supplies for games and ceremonies, ceremonial fixtures, game prizes, paper goods, pencils, pens, and name tags. Fundraising is necessary to cover the balance. Note that special events (Pack or Den) usually have nominal fees which are paid only by those who participate in them. We traditionally have just one Pack fundraiser a year; the BSA Popcorn Sale.  Popcorn is to Cub Scouts as Cookies are to Girl Scouts, and the Scouts are eligible to receive promotional items based on their level of sales. To net about $35 to the Pack, each Scout needs to sell a minimum of $100 of popcorn. Any parent who feels an alternate fundraiser is warranted may volunteer to arrange and conduct one. In the unusual circumstance that a Scout cannot participate in ANY fundraising, there is an option to contribute the $35 . 

Roundtable is a Leader Resource every month!

Posted on Jan 22 2015 - 9:23pm

Ever wonder how our Pack finds out about upcoming events for Cub Scouts, and tips on Pack and Den Meetings? White Horse District Roundtable is held every month, and it's a great way for leaders and Pack Committee to consult directly with BSA volunteers and staff. This is just one of the support resources that make it easy to be a Cub Scout leader! Talk to our Commitee Chair, Lisa Witherspoon, about attending to represent the Pack this coming month. "Guest appearances" by parents who might consider being a Den Leader in the future is welcomed and meet new leaders that could turn into friends

Den Leader Resources

Posted on Jan 22 2015 - 9:13pm

Den Leaders Parents alike will be interested in how our Cub Scouting program focuses on the Scout's handbook, organizing den activities into Den Meetings that lead up to achieving Rank by the time Blue & Gold comes around in the early spring. THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE THINKING OF BEING AN ASSISTANT DEN LEADER, now you can easily understand what is required by browsing complete plans for each Den Meeting using your computer.  By following  these plans, Den Leaders can keep themes synchronized with the Pack meetings and stay on track. See http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources/DenandPackMeetingResourceGuide/DenMeetingPlans.aspx for details, including the specific den meeting plans Den Leaders will use this year!   Den Leaders can still add creative touches to Den Meetings without worry about how to get in all the requirements for rank. Remember, our PACK MEETINGS will continue to incorporate our ceremonies, and seasonal traditions.

Rank Progress!

Posted on Jan 22 2015 - 9:11pm

Remember, ALL requirements for grade-specific rank badge (tiger, wolf, bear, webelos) need to be complete before Blue and Gold on 3-21-2015, because that is when we award the rank patches with a formal ceremony. If your Scout has "missed" any Den meetings or a review of his book indicates gaps, please discuss with his Den Leader to ensure he is on-track.

I encourage all Pack 127 parents to attend this training for your own knowledge of “camping of the cub scout way.” The Pack will reimburse registration fees, and process your “leader application” as a Committee Member or Assistant Cubmaster so you can help lead our Pack camping program.

Participants who complete this training course will: Understand the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA outdoor program.
