Our Current Adventure: Fellowship and Duty to God

**This adventure is home-based and will be completed individually with family while on Winter-Break. We will not be meeting during the holiday. **


Takeaways for Cub Scouts in this Adventure:


  • Showing our duty to God by participating in service projects designed to help a neighbor community organization
  • Learning about individuals who have demonstrated fellowship, and creating plans to help us develop characteristics that will benefit our community.
  • Worshiping together to strengthen our faith in God.
  • A Scout is reverent.

This adventure is found on pages 58-69 in your scout's handbook.

*Please remember to update CubTrails when completed.*

Fantastic Job at the Carnival!!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came, participated, and helped make our carnival a great success - and that it was!!! Our Bear Scouts did a fantastic job with everything from planning to executing, and I could not be any prouder! Learning to help and encourage others is very important part of being a Cub Scout - and you Scouts ROCKED it! Way to Go Bears!!!

*THINGS TO REMEMBER*


Do-At-Home:

  • Read through the exercises in the Adult Guide in the front of your Scout's book and update CubTrails that you and your Scout have discussed this booklet in the drop down menu under Bear Rank.
  • Each Scout needs to complete their Cyber Chip Requirements @: http://www.netsmartz.org/scouting then update CubTrails in the drop down menu under Bear Rank.

Cub-O 2016!!

It’s fast, exciting, and FUN. And it’s all Cub Scouts. The locations of 40-50 orange and white orienteering flags are marked on the map and you and your team will go hiking in the woods to find them – or most of them! Each flag has a hole punch that you use to mark your scorecard. Flags are worth 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 points, depending on how hard they are to find. Your Den team will get a Cub-O competition map 20 minutes before the race starts. Then you plan a hiking strategy to find the most flags and score the most points in just 2.5 hours! You’ll stay warm ‘cause you’ll stay moving!


**Our Den would like to sign up together and go together if possible! We need to have the money collected and mailed by Christmas Eve. Please let me know ASAP if you and your cub scout would like to go! Please follow the link below for more info!
