Joining us for this reverent topic is Jason Nolan, who teaches a course on religious emblems at Philmont Training Center in Cimarron, New Mexico, and has been the CEO of P.R.A.Y. for a little over a year. He currently serves on the National Religious Relationships Support Committee.
A loyal listener contacted the CubCast mailbox and wanted to know if we could devote to entire episode on clever ways to get every parent involved in Den and Pack meetings. Well, we aim to please, so we invited the National Director of Cub Scouting Anthony Berger who was also a Cubmaster. His pack started with 8 boys and within a few short years grew to 35 with lots of parent participation (although it didn’t start out that way). Amy and Aaron discuss with Anthony the clever methods that he used to get almost every parent involved in the pack.
The colorful floats, the sounds of the marching bands, the banners and flags; there’s lots to love about parades. Having your dens and packs participate in a parade is not only fun for the boys but also a good way to get noticed in the community. Join us as we discuss with Carrie Wetzel, the Committee Chair for Pack 45 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, how you can get your dens and packs from being mere spectators and into the parade!
Humorist Dave Barry once said, “Camping is nature’s way of promoting the motel business.” But Scouts know better. And Cub Scouts know that camping can be fun for the whole family!

Having organized family camping outings for her pack of more than100 Cub Scouts, Sara shares her secrets for planning, preparation and the reveals the keys to a successful family camping outing.
