ALL ABOUT CUB SCOUTING
Cub Scouting embraces Family Values, Character Growth, Citizenship, Scout Skills, Life Skills, Creativity, Fitness and most of all FUN. Cub Scouts are organized in Packs and further divided into age appropriate Dens. Cub Scouts range from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade depending upon your sons age. Visit the "Dens" portion of our site to learn more. With all that it embraces, and encourages, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts give boys a leg up on their competition due to the very nature of the programs.
LMES Pack 15 is governed by a Pack Committee, made up of volunteers from our Pack who organize and plan all of our events. The Committee also selects leaders, performs record keeping, manages the pack, orders badges, awards, and equipment. The Committee makes sure that the Pack is run properly and in accordance with the By-Laws and Regulations enforced by our District Executive. We are in the Mad River District. Lastly, we are overseen by the Connecticut Rivers Council, who represents us Nationally. Our charter organization is the LMES PTO who charters our pack under their title and, more importantly, provides us with help and support throughout the year with recruiting and community service projects.
Adult Leaders of Cub Scout packs take the names of The Jungle Book's main characters and are called Akela. Carefully selected leaders provide good role models and are taught to reinforce positive qualities of character. All Adult leaders are trained in Youth Protection and abide by the Two Deep policy while around any Cub Scout.
The time you'll spend with your young Cub Scout will be well spent. You will work with your son on his various award requirements. Each Den and Pack meeting are carefully planned by our Den Leaders and the Cubmaster. Our Dens meet 1-3 times per month in the evenings for about an hour and usually include a "go see it" function like a visit to our local Bank, Town Hall, Fire/Police Department etc. Start times vary from Den to Den because of age. As the Cub Scout moves up the ranks, he is required to be more and more self sufficient and aside from Den meetings, extra curricular effort is required by the Scout to meet the requirements of all the Activity Badges needed to earn the final and most coveted Arrow of Light Award.
Pack Meetings are once a month and this is when all the dens get together for a well planned scouting function. All the scouts love the Pack meetings because it is similar to going to a party. Our Pack Meetings are themed and include several aspects to keep the boys interested and the time flies by! As the weather gets nice, we like to bring our Pack Meetings outside to enjoy nature and the great outdoors.
