For most of the packs September is the beginning of the Cub Scouting year. It's time to welcome new boys and their families. Include in the pack meeting program opportunities for the continuing families and new families to meet. Boys and families can make new friends. Involve parents from the beginning. Introduce leaders, new and old. Make it fun and easy for new leaders by providing support, the Fast Start training and the materials needed for their new positions. Inform them of the upcoming Basic Training in October (or whenever your district/ council has Basic Training - check with your district executive for the dates). Boys deserve trained leaders.

The above paragraph was taken from the Santa Clara Council powwow book. (Boldface added by Chris)

Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose. In going to training you will learn many things about the Cub Scout program. You will learn the 3 aims of the BSA and the purposes and methods used in the CS program to achieve the aims.

I also strongly encourage all parents and unit leaders to attend Roundtable. The Cub Scout program is done around monthly themes. The themes give leaders the basis for their monthly programs. The theme for September for Cub Scouts is "Be A Dectective". For the Webelos it is Communicator and Scientist and for the Tiger Cubs I am starting out with Big Idea #1--Getting To Know You (a must), and Big Idea #16--Tell It Like It Is.

Learn about Cub Scouting's Language at Pack 114 in Nebraska. Not only can you learn about the language but Barb has a Cub Scout Jeopardy game and other great resources at her site. Just go and enjoy and get some great ideas and help!
