WELCOME TO CUB SCOUT
SANDY SPRINGS, GEORGIA
2021 Cub Scouting for PACK 236? Safety First.
We can’t predict what the 2021-2022 program year will look like but here are some of the items we as leaders are committed to:
We will follow the latest State, CDC and Boy scout recommendations & guidelines.
We will follow the S.A.F.E. Checklist for any and all events - Including “Before you gather” and “as you gather” protocols.
We will look to keep events outside when possible.
While nothing in life is Risk Free - we will look to minimize risk as much as possible. With the continued pandemic AND virtual school for many or heavily modified in person teaching as well as the severe limitation of sports opportunities for our kids - our scouting program is likely to be the safest option for them to gather socially. The following details should give you an overview of the approach and plan for the year.
Your first step if you are new to Scouts is to register with the BSA. The link below will register you with the Atlanta Area Council and your information will then be forwarded to our pack. There is a separate fee that will be due in December to cover event and supply costs for the pack. (Financial aid is available)
Free stuff for New Cub Scouts!
Every new Cub Scout this recruiting season will receive both a free Cub Scout Handbook and a Launch Kit filled with $60 of items provided to welcome every Scout to a year of adventures and fun. There are over twenty awesome tools and toys in each box, including a robot hand, headlamp, water bottle, first aid kit, terrarium, whistle, knot guide, and more! And at Sign Up Events, they will get their own slime!
(Financial aid is available)
Starting early September, look for three Cub Scouts Launch Parties to be posted to our Cub Scout Launch webpage. These launch parties will introduce parents and Scouts to Cub Scouting, covering Scout Life, Camp Life, and Family Life.

A Cub Scout Parent:
One unique thing about Cub Scouting is that you, and the family, join in on the program with your scout.
Cub Scouting exists to support your family and help enrich your family time together.
Each den meeting, pack meeting, and event requires parent volunteers to make the program a success.
Knows the pack isn’t a babysitter
Volunteers to help out in planning, on committees, or leading events
Recognizes the scout sign when raised and sets an example of how to be quiet
Brings enthusiasm and a natural curiosity for learning to each den and pack event
Attempts to follow the scout oath and law, especially at our events
Tries to be prepared
Doesn’t sit in the back of the pack meeting room and talk loudly
Takes phone calls outside of the meeting room to not distract and to set an example
