Boys and Girls Share in Time for Your JSN

As we start a new Scouting year in Cub Scouts, one big change is opening our program girls. Let’s be real here; Cub Scouting has been a ‘sibling-friendly’ environment in most packs. Moms and dads invest their time and talent to support their sons and Scout leaders have found ways to include the girls into many of the activities. Now, with the creation of the Lions program (for Kindergarten-aged youth) and the recruitment of girls at all levels of Cub Scouting, the program is now truly an activity with which  the entire family can participate.

As packs begin planning for their ‘Join Scouting Night’ (JSN) events, it is important to get the information out to the community that Cub Scouting is now inclusive of all elementary-aged youth. Whether your pack has decided to include girl dens or not, your community should know that Cub Scouting is for both boys and girls.

To aid in getting this word out, ScoutingWire has been producing videos and making them out on social media platforms. One of these videos, Welcome to the Cub, featuring boys and girls sharing why they love Cub Scouting. Perhaps you would want to download/copy/show this video as a part of your unit’s JSN. It is sure to put give you some talking points about the Cub Scout program while allowing the parents a view of Cub Scouting from the youth’s perspective. 

As you prepare for your JSN, do reach out to the district professionals for materials and support. Also, you can contact your unit commissioner and/or your Cub Scout Roundtable staff for assistance and ideas. As always, you are invited to the Chippewa District Roundtable the second Thursday of each month to get ideas, like this, tips and news you can use with your pack.

Good luck with your Join Scouting Night!

Welcome to the Cub

Cub Scouts is now for boys and girls, and kids have a lot to say about it!
