Scouting at New Hope

New Hope UMC is proud to host scouting groups for all ages!

Cub Scouts Pack 599

Mondays @ 6:30 pm

 

When you sign your son or daughter up for Cub Scouting, you’re signing him or her up for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it’s cooking s’mores over a campfire or racing a Pinewood derby car, your son or daughter will learn new skills, build character, fuel their imagination all while having fun!

Cub Scouting is a year-round program designed to meet the needs of young boys and girls ages 5-10 and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Youth can begin as Lion Cubs once they start Kindergarten. As Lions they focus on fun and learning the basics of Scouting. Next rank is Tigers (1st grade) where they learn the meaning of the Bobcat Badge basics (Oath, Law, Moto...) as well as introducing them to more outdoor adventures and learning Duty to God. Next ranks are Wolf (2nd grade or age 8) and Bear (3rd grade or age 9) Cub Scout Dens that have programs geared to be more advanced for their age all while having fun. Webelos Scouts (4th grade) and Arrow of Light (AoL) (5th grade or age 10) are the last two ranks as Cub Scouts and is about intruducing the Scouts to Troop life to prepare them to transition into Scouts BSA.

Each rank teaches kids important lessons to prepare them for growing up. The higher the rank, the more challenging its requirements.

The BSA Scouting program has five specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting." They are Leadership, achievement, character, service, and outdoors. Scouting is a truly great way to develop leadership skills in young people. This will be a legacy they will benefit from for their entire lives.
