Pack 3094 Parents make the Pack Grow!

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 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!

Pack 3094 Leadership Roles

        The Cubmaster provides a public face for the Pack, working with the boys and parents to help everyone have a good time! Keeps to the agenda to ensure pack meetings will run smoothly, information is promptly delivered and awards are presented.

The Committee Chair works with the Cubmaster to ensure the Annual Health Forms have been completed for EVERY person attending any Camp, even adults. These are for Day Camp, Bear Camp, Webelos Camp or any other Camp or activity requiring a Health Form. It is a Great idea to keep a current Health Form on file for each of the Webelos I's and Webelos II's, so when they do their Boy Scout Troop Visits or Boy Scout Troop Overnighters, they have them with the Boy Scout Troop they and their Parent will be attending ---yes, the attending parent needs a Health Form as well. The Webelos Dens need to be in communication with you about when and with whom they will be doing visits or overnighters with. The Webelos scout(s) and their parent(s) should return their Health Forms for the Pack Files so they may be utilized again.
