You Need to Know These Three Things When You Start Cub Scouts
Cub Scouts Must-Knows
1. The uniform. Getting the right pieces for the Cub Scout uniform makes you the coolest parent ever.
2. The lingo. Learning the Cub Scout lingo can be like learning a new language. Pinewood Derby, den, pack, and all the points of the Scout Law were not on your radar a few years ago. But now, you’re picking up this Scouting language like a pro, even if sometimes you still find yourself thoroughly confused. The Scouting parents around you are great resources for this info – they’re in the same spot you’re in so ask questions, combine resources, and always feel free to message us if you need a quick refresher on any of that Cub Scout wording.
3. The order of ranks. Unsure if your son is a Bear Scout versus working toward his Bear Scout? Use the Advancement Chart to keep the order of ranks straight.
