RECRUIT new Scouts! BRING prospective new boys to a meeting!

Posted on Apr 21 2014 - 8:55am

THE BEST POSSIBLE ADVERTISING OF CUB SCOUTING IS YOUR SON bringing a friend! He’ll get a special RECRUITER patch, and see that friend at Scouting activities. SPECIAL OFFER, JOINING FEE JUST $30 FOR BALANCE OF 2013-2014 PROGRAM YEAR. Considering we currently serve all Voorhees boys, we sure could expand significantly. PROSPECTIVE NEW SCOUTS AND NEW PARENTS are encouraged to come out to ANY Pack or Den event and learn about Cub Scouting! Cub Scouts who want to "recruit" their friends, bring 'em to the next Den or Pack meeting! Also please tell any leader your ideas you may have to increase our visibility to parents with boys who could be Cub Scouts. In particular, ways we can get the word out through organizations you participate in, such as churches and clubs, would be helpful.  IF YOU HAVE ANY PROSPECTS, PLEASE contact your Den Leader or Cubmaster, otherwise EMAIL THE NAME, PHONE, AND EMAIL ADDRESS to recruiting@cubscoutingvoorhees.org – right now if you can!

Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program (Belt Loops and Pins)

Posted on Mar 14 2014 - 9:48am
Now that the boys are largely finished with their basic rank requirements, they can work on belt loops or pins listed at www.boyscouttrail.com/cub-scouts/acad-sports.asp then tell your son's Den Leader when the requirements are complete! It's lots of fun for the whole family to discover new things and your son will be recognized in his Den with something to wear with his uniform. 

Cub Scout and Webelos Summer Camp at Pine Hill Scout Reservation

Posted on Mar 14 2014 - 9:32am

Yes, yet again, Pine Hill Scout Reservation will be hosting the greatest day camp and Webelos overnight camp again in 2014!  See http://www.gardenstatescouting.org/summercamp/cs for all the details and start thinking about how this fits into your family's summer schedule. Rifle, Archery, Fishing, Boating, Swimming, Hiking, Singing, Naturing, Crafting, are all part of the experience! Costs are reasonable, perhaps your Den will arrange for a group to go together and extend the fun of Cub Scouts through the summer months. NOTE: there is a special overnight camp for Webelos and their parents, this include current Bears because they will be promoted to Webelos in June.

Leaders for Summer Programs

Posted on Mar 14 2014 - 9:22am

As we go into the spring, all of us will naturally start thinking of outdoor activities and Scouting offers many opportunities for that. The Pack Committee works "behind the scenes" with the Cubmaster, Den Leaders, and Chartered Organization Representative to make everything happen, to include providing for Cub Scouting activities when school is out. We are looking for new or experienced leaders to organize the "summertime" Pack meetings and events, to include coordinating those summer day camp participants and other outdoor events. There are Pack and Scout awards that will recognize our efforts in this area, but as usual this will require additional commitments from adult volunteers. Self-identify your interest to Cubmaster Ken Kaplan and Committee Chair Lisa Witherspoon. NOTE: see http://usscouts.org/cubscouts/cspack.asp for a reminder of Pack organizational structure, Ashland Church has designated Charles Tracey as Chartered Org Rep going forward, so he will be the link between Ashland Church and the Pack, to include ensuring the right leaders are in place to run the Pack.  Feel free to email cor@cubscoutingvoorhees.org with questions.

Roundtable is a Leader Resource every month!

Posted on Mar 14 2014 - 9:12am

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!
