Boy Scouts of America Do Your Best!

Blue and Gold Postponed

Okay guys…I am sad to say that we will be re-scheduling the Pack 112 Blue & Gold celebration.  After getting feedback, the consensus from our pack leaders is to move it to another date.  I talked about rolling the dice, but I don’t feel great about gambling with anyone’s safety or with our Pack money.  If for some reason we had to cancel tomorrow, then we would lose our deposits & monies already paid for caterers, cakes, Robinson rental, etc.

We will need to find a good weekend to move it to.  We can look at March, April or May (the sooner the better).  The good news is that this will give a couple of scouts some more time to complete all of their requirements.

I appreciate all of the hard work and planning put in to this event.  I assure you all that it will not go to waste.  (Read More…)

Scouting for Food 2015

When:
Saturday, February 7th 2015 &
Saturday, February 14th, 2015

A Cub Scout promises to “give good will” and a Boy Scout promises “to help other people at all times.” The best way to show our Scouting Spirit is by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive.  There are thousands of needy families in the DFW area, and numbers are growing rapidly… especially with today’s economy.

Our goal is 100% participation from all packs, troops and crews in this most important outreach to our communities.  Last year we collected 13,572 non-perishable items (canned food, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, etc.) and this year we can top that total.  In fact, we are proud to note that Scouting for Food accounts for the single largest donation received by local food banks each year.

Lead the Fun!

We still have Pack Leader Positions Open. Activity Coordinator Roles plan all the fun things. The Pack Leadership Team does all the administrative work for you! If you’re thinking you’d like to commit, but not sure how….choose a small Activity Coordinator Role. A small, “one off” volunteer role is a great way to contribute and get your feet wet.

Open Pack Roles

  • Assistant CubMaster

Activity Coordinator Roles

  • Campfire Coordinator – plan the campout fun….games, skits, jokes
  • Christmas Parade Chair – Nov/Dec
  • GRUBMASTER – Oh yeah! Plan, organize, cook campout food. Fall/spring
  • Scouting for Food Chair – February
  • Camp Card Coordinator – March

The Future of Scouting

For the last several years, the Boy Scouts of America has been pursuing a strategic, national plan on how to update the Cub Scout program.  In late 2009 volunteers met with national BSA staff and leaders in the field of child development to discuss “What Today’s Youth Want and Need”.

From that kickoff meeting, the BSA has been designing the changes to the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.  Starting on June 1st, 2015, the Cub Scouts will begin to implement these changes and transition to a program designed around these core desired outcomes:

  • More Cub Scouts being active/having fun
  • Improved Webelos transition/retention
  • Simplified advancement
  • Improved connection to mission and aims
