Cub Scout Promise

I promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack.



In addition to working with your sons on their Cub Scouting accomplishments, parents may be asked to help with Den or Pack activities.

This may include anything from the coordination of the planning for a Pack Meeting (Holiday Party, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pack Trip, etc.), helping your Den Leaders with an activity on the Den level, to helping with the set-up or clean up at a Pack event.

Our Den Leaders and Pack Officers are volunteers, and all have other commitments as well. As this is a totally volunteer organization, each parent should consider helping out with at least one activity during the year.

In addition, ideas for Den and Pack meeting activities from all parents are always welcome. We encourage all parents to attend Leader Meetings so they can voice their ideas and concerns. Contact your den leader or Pack Officer to ask when the next meeting will be held or to offer your ideas or suggestions.

What is a "Scout Parent"?

A "Scout Parent" is a parent or adult mentor of a Scout who enthusiastically participates with their Scout and also helps other volunteers to provide the best quality program experience to all youth in every unit.

A Scout Parent:

  • Leads their family in obtaining the values, benefits, experiences and rewards from their family’s Scouting participation, and in sharing these with others;
  • Enjoys participating with his or her Scout and inspires their child to persevere in Scouting with their tenure, activity participation and achievement;
  • Helps enhance youth and parent-mentor recruitment, retention, enthusiasm, commitment and participation in the passionate GREAT Family FUN of Scouting!
