SCOUTING MINISTRY NOTES
Scouting Coordinator is Kelly Chandler.
The BSA units are updating their web pages now due to a recent move to a new service provider.
For information on Cub Scout Pack 742 or Boy Scout Troop 742, please send an email to Kelly.
If you are a boy in first grade through fifth grade—or you're 7 to 10 years old—then Cub Scouting is for you. It's for your family, too. This is the first and the biggest of the three Scouting programs (Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing) from the Boy Scouts of America. Tiger Cubs are in 1st Grade; Wolf Cubs are 2nd Graders; Bear Cubs are in 3rd Grade. Cub Scouts operate in Dens as part of a Pack.
The Webelos Scout program, for boys who are in the fourth or fifth grade, is filled with activities and outdoor fun. Everything in the Webelos Scout program is more challenging than the things the younger boys in the pack do. Webelos Scouts are still in Cub Scouting. They take part in Cub Scout pack meetings, events, and outings. But the Webelos den also makes its own plans and enjoys many activities that the younger Cub Scouts don't get to do. Instead of working on achievements and electives as other boys in Cub Scouting do, Webelos Scouts work on activity badges and the Arrow of Light Award, which is a bridge to Boy Scouting.
Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Boy Scouts operate in Patrols as part of a Troop.
