INDIAN TRAIL – Cub Scout Pack 97, of the New Covenant Baptist Church, has introduced new programming with the addition of a Lions rank for kindergarten-aged boys and girls.
This is being done in anticipation of the national scouting organization’s new intended branding in February 2019 (Scouts BSA) and enhanced programming for Cub Scouts with the addition of programs geared toward kindergarteners.
Pack 97 has always believed that scouting is a family program and regularly had sisters attending events with their family. Now they’ll be rewarded for their participation and earn ranks.
“I didn’t really see myself as being a big part of Cub Scouting until I heard my daughter and my son could both be involved,” new Lion’s den leader Rosa Babylon said. “With it being a true family program, it now just feels right. Now we don’t have to make time for two separate scouting programs.”
Pack 97 believes in the mission to enhance the lives of youth by providing unique experiences and programs.
The pack will be actively recruiting incoming Lions/kindergarteners and Tigers/first-graders. The organization encourages area leader volunteers and girls in second through fifth grades reach out with interest.
Pack 97 has a recruitment event at one at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 at Sun Valley Elementary, 5200 Rogers Road. Children don’t have to be students at those two schools.
