Join Scouting Night -- September 12th, 2017

Are you considering signing your son up for Cub Scouts? Are you curious how your son would fit into Pack 1154? Do you have questions about the Cub Scouting program?

Join us for our annual Join Scouting Night presentation from 7pm to 8pm at Sanders Corner Elementary School on September 12th, 2017.

While your sons are busy launching water bottle rockets and playing games with some of our current scouts, we will provide information on Pack 1154, the Cub Scouting program, and the Scouting program in general. Our goal is to help you learn about Pack 1154 and what we do as well as get a better appreciation for Cub Scouting and what it offers for your son and your family.

Looking for more information before the meeting? Check out our New Scout Guide to Cub Scout Pack 1154 and the articles on the BSA's Cub Hub. Both provide a wealth of information and can give you a jump start on what it means to be a Cub Scout.

We look forward to seeing you at Join Scouting Night!
