Cub Scouting, espeically scouting in Pack 3094 is a parent volunteer run organization. There's no paid staff. Our parents make the Pack Go and Grow!
So, what's involved in helping make the Pack go? Lots of little things! A whole bunch of information is attached in the Fast Start Guide PDF. Lets summarize:
The Pack is made up of a Committee and Leaders.
The Leaders are the ones you're familiar with:
- Tiger Den Leader
- Wolf Den Leader
- Bear Den Leader
- Webelos 1 Den Leader
- Webelos 2 Den Leader
- The Cubmaster and Assistant Cubmaster.
They provide the day to day and monthly programs for your scouts. They interact every week with the kids and make the program fun!
The Committee works behind the scenes. We call our Committee our ScoutParents, because it's just parents figuring out fun things for the Scouts to do. Some of the jobs in the Committee include:
- Pack Committee Chairman
- Pack Secretary
- Pack Treasurer
- Advancement Member
- Pack Trainer
- Public Relations Member
- Outings and Camping Member
- Internet Member
- Pinewood Derby Member
Right now a lot of the hats are being worn by just a few people. We'd love to have more folks pick up just a little bit when they can help out.
There's lots of training on MyScouting.org to help the new Committe member or Den Leader learn how to make things work better. And we have monthly Roundtables, where we go over one topic in depth. Our District also has an annual 'University of Scouting' training day where you can take classes on everything from games for the kids to budget planning!
