Cub Scouting offers opportunities, activities
PICKENS COUNTY — Parents of young boys face many choices in after-school activities. Boys want to have fun, while parents want them to learn positive values and skills that will last a lifetime.
Cub Scouts offers the opportunity for boys about to enter first through fifth grade in a public or private school or home schooled.
Everything that Cub Scouts do contribute to their moral, physical, and intellectual development:
* Sports such as baseball, soccer, and swimming—develop physical fitness, teamwork, fair play, cooperation, and good sportsmanship.
* Hands-on learning experiences about art, science, music, etc.—inspire the imagination of youth and sharpen a boy’s interest in learning.
* Outdoor adventures such as camping, hiking, and fishing—convey an appreciation for nature’s majesty and teach the importance of preserving our environment.
Cub Scouting also provides a positive way for parent and son to grow closer together and encourages you to spend quality time together. The family-centered program encourages closeness to family and will give you an opportunity to participate in activities with your son that you normally couldn’t do.
* Boys often begin projects at den meetings and complete them at home with the help of a parent. Such projects become the catalyst for parents and boys to interact with each other on an informal, relaxed basis.
* The advancement plan is designed to be used by parents to create a learning environment in their home. The plan helps parents awaken their son’s curiosity, stimulate his desire to try new things, and encourage him to carry the learning process beyond the classroom.
These and other elements of the Cub Scout program provide a positive way for your family to grow closer together through many opportunities to engage in one-on-one interaction and communication with your son. If this sounds like an activity you and your boy would like to get involved with, there are upcoming sign up nights at local elementary schools in the area. If you don’t see one listed in your local area, contact the Blue Ridge Council of the Boy Scouts of America at 233-8363 for help.
