Don't Miss The Fun And ADVENTURE of Scouting
BE A SCOUT
First and foremost, Pack 41 is a family made up of families.
When your son or daughter becomes a Cub Scout, your entire family becomes a part of our extended network of families and friends.
We do our very best to include siblings, brothers and sisters. It isn't easy for a young couple or for a single parent to be raising a young child in today's world, as if it was ever easy to raise a young child.
When you join our pack, you will make new friends of other couples and single parents, who are all trying their best to give their children the very best shot at a successful and fulfilling life.
The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make the correct choices in their lifetime by instilling in them the principles and values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. John Wayne once noted that if there were more people who lived their lives by these simple principles, the world would have far less problems.
The ages from 6 to 11 are incredibly important in your children's development. You get one chance, one fleeting chance to give them the childhood, the experiences, the value anchors, that will mark their ascension to adulthood. They are just kids of that there is no doubt, but they will quickly become a young adults and the value added time you can spend with them, really spend with them, working together, building a relationship, becoming their friend, being the parent that you promised yourself you would be on the day of their birth, that investment will make the difference to their life, to them, and to their children, yes your grandchildren.
Once they hit their teens, 95% of your opportunity to influence them will be past. In today's world we just suffer too many external influences and once they are teenagers, the value imprints, and relationship imprints that you, yes you the parent nurtured in them will be driving their developmental train into the future. Fate will fill in the blanks where you leave room, of that you can be sure.
There are many paths one can take, and scouting is not the only one however we believe you should take the opportunity to really look at a life for your child with the Boy Scouts of America as their guiding light.
And here else can you accompany your child to the top of a mountain peak after sleeping a night under the stars and stand on the top of that mountain by their side, a memory that will last you a lifetime, for both moms and dads.
Cub Scouting is the beginning with tons of age appropriate fun and new experiences. Our goal in Cubs is to prepare them for the big show, the big adventure, Scouts BSA. We start with stuff that kindergarteners love to do and work our way up as they grow, working with YOU, the parents to provide them the best of extracurricular experiences in partnership with the schools and their sporting life, and their faith based life and obligations. Scouting is all about balance, and getting as much out of every day as possible.
It all begins with a decision. We can help you to integrate scouting as much or as little into your family's activity plan. You get one shot at giving them the foundation that they can build a life on. Your children are your legacy, your message to tomorrow. Don't settle for what fate throws their way. It's GO TIME. Make your time with your children count. Pack 41 Fitchburg is a great solid first step.
