October 2019 – Den Organization

CubCast - Fri, 2019-09-27 09:13

An organizing principle is a core assumption from which everything else around it can derive a classification or a value so this month we’re going to figure out the structure of a den…you know – how to get it organized. Joining us for the discussion is Barb Perez, Development Director in the National Capital Area Council.

August 2019 – Parent Orientation

CubCast - Wed, 2019-07-24 16:36

Hopefully your recruiting efforts are bringing lots of new boys and girls into your dens and packs. But welcoming new members also means welcoming new parents, and you need to let those new to the program know what’s expected of both the Cub Scout and the parent. We were a little surprised to learn that a lot of packs don’t have an orientation for parents.

Jamie Smith started out in Scouting about eight years ago as a concerned parent. That led to becoming den leader, assistant Cubmaster, and then Cubmaster. However, it was the role of a concerned parent that made him an expert on parent orientation. Jamie shares with us why it’s important for you to have a parent orientation and what that entails.

July 2019 – Welcoming All New Families

CubCast - Tue, 2019-06-25 15:55

Sometimes a new family might come in with a little bit of anxiety—maybe they’re not exactly sure what they’ve gotten themselves into—and it’s important that we make them comfortable. These new parents are future Cubmasters or den leaders or even just good resources for your den or pack. It’s important that we make them feel comfortable and actually glad that they’ve joined the Cub Scouting family. Joining us is Winnie Lee of Pack 681 in the San Diego-Imperial Council’s Rancho Mesa District. As she tells us – it all begins with welcoming the families. How do we do that? Let’s find out.
