Cub Scout Pack 106, Kuna’s only community pack, is holding a recruiting night at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1, in the Kuna Middle School cafeteria.
Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Cub Scouts are divided into age groups: Tigers for first-graders, Wolves for second-graders, Bears for third-graders and Webelos for fourth- and fifth-graders.
Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service. Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting — citizenship training, character development and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy’s sense of belonging.
