I have four children, all boys, and last year marked the beginning of our adventures with the Boy Scouts of America. My oldest son just kicked off his 2nd year in Cub Scouts, and our whole family is excited about another year of Scout activities. We enjoy attending weekly meetings as well as the special events such as the Pinewood Derby and Scout-O-Rama.
The Scouting program encourages family participation and offers many ways to be involved in the many events and activities that are part of the Scouting program. I attend weekly Scout meetings with my son and our entire family attends the monthly pack meetings. My husband is an Eagle Scout and a current Scout leader to a group of 11 year old Scouts. We love to support our local Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops because we have seen the difference it makes in boys’ lives when they are taught relevant skills and good values that help them become productive people in today’s society.
Last week, my son’s Cub Scout meeting focused on physical fitness skills. The scouts went from station to station demonstrating different abilities such as throwing baseballs, passing basketballs, jogging for five minutes, doing somersaults and more. Each station completed a requirement towards earning a badge. All the boys and their parents had a fun time with this activity. I love how the Scout program encourages the boys to be healthy and physically fit.
My child looks forward to Scout meetings and enjoys the friendships he has made there in his group den. Our family looks forward to participating in Scouts for many years to come.
