Join our Cub Scout Pack 3049



Anyone who is entering 1st through 5th grade are eligible to join Cub Scouts.  Our Scout year follows the school year and starts up in the fall.  We welcome kids from Lakewood School, Black River School, Waukazoo, and more.  We will communicate our fall recruitment drive at school open houses and student backpack mail.  Come and check out what Cub Scouts Pack 3049 has to offer for your kids. 

A Shout Out to new Cub Scouts



You can join scouting at any age.   You are going to have lot of fun and you will learn a lot of great new things this year.  Don’t worry about not knowing as much as some of the experienced scouts.  Your fellow scouts will welcome you to our den and they will help you out anyway they can, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.  You can also ask me, your den leader, for help as well.  As a new scout, you will have to complete The Bobcat Trail on your own and with some help from your parents.  The contents of the Bobcat Trail can be found in your Handbook and in the Bobcat Badge section at left of this page.  After completion, we will conduct a Bobcat ceremony to mark your achievement and welcome you to the Pack.  You will learn things like the Cub Scout Promise, the Cub Scout Handshake, the Cub Scout Sign and more.  Welcome to the Pack!

The path to Eagle Scout



1st Grade = Tiger
2nd Grade = Wolf
3rd Grade = Bear
4th Grade = Webelos 1
5th Grade = Webelos 2
Ages 12-17 = Boy Scouts

After 5th grade you join Boy Scouts and you will make your way through a series of levels towards becoming an Eagle Scout.  Each new level is earned through the cumulative achievement of merit badges.  A Boy Scout will start as a Boy Scout, to Tenderfoot, to Second Class, to First Class, to Star, to Life Scout, and after completing the Eagle Project, earning the rank of Eagle Scout.  Many Boy Scouts have become an Eagle Scout on a three year fast track program.  The deadline for becoming an Eagle Scout is your 18th birthday - no exceptions.

 

Boy Scouts is one of the most highly respected youth leadership programs in our country and Eagle Scouts are found at the highest levels of leadership throughout the business world, government, and more.
