Cub Scout "Round-Up"?
We encourage boys to join
Pack 5 any time of the year.
Although Cub Scouts work
together as a Den, this is also an individualized
program that accommodates youth of varying abilities,
interests, and pacing. For example, during our 2008 -
2009 schedule, two new Cubs joined our established Wolf
Den later in the cycle. By Spring, each was actually
further ahead on his rank advancement requirements!
The reason we hold "formal"
Round-Ups is to raise visibility among families who may
not know the various Packs in our area. Boys in the
first through fifth grade are free to choose any Pack
they wish, although most tend to select the one that's
closest. Others may prefer Packs where their friends go,
or based on religious affiliations.
We'd like you to consider
all that Pack 5 has to offer. Round-Ups are the time
when we make a concerted effort to make our Adult
Leaders, parents, and current Cub Scouts available to
answer questions, talk about our Calendar, and extend a
personal invitation to you all.
Like most Packs, our
Calendar begins with the school year in September. Pack
5 then offers events and activities year-round.
Our Fall Round-Ups follow
the tradition of my extracurricular activity offerings
that kick off in September or October. It makes sense,
because boys are joining new class rooms, meeting new
friends, and taking next big steps in their lives. Cub
Scouting is a perfect fit with that — and it's a time
when we're heading out for great adventures that
shouldn't end just because the summer has!
If you're in the first,
second, third, fourth, or fifth grade when Fall Round-Up
comes around, you're the perfect age to join Pack 5.
Summer is the perfect time
to check out Cub Scouts if you're not already involved.
Best of all, current
Kindergarteners who are about to move into the first
grade are eligible to join Pack 5 when they "graduate"
to first grade in the Spring. The Boy Scouts of America,
through the local Huron Trails District and Great Trail
Council of which we are a part, offer "Cub Scout Day
Camp" and other summertime activities to give you a head
start on the upcoming year of Scouting. Pack 5 is
structured to help you fit right into our ongoing stream
of fun events (and maybe even get a head start on
earning awards for the Fall).

through fourth, you should take a look at Pack 5 this
