Cub Scout Support

We have some interesting news from our December LEC meeting. At the meeting, the Lodge Executive Committee voted to switch the lodge's focus to supporting the Cub Scout program in the Central New Jersey Council.

The idea of supporting the Cub Scout program is not a new one; we have been doing it in part for years, assisting at Cub-Parent weekends and assisting units and districts for Webelos crossovers. This focus takes us to a new level of support, where our entire annual lodge program ties into Cub Scouting. It signifies a new direction for the lodge, which will serve to increase the Cub Scout recruitment and retention rates, as well as become a new reason for many of our members to become, and stay, involved with the lodge.

We are starting this spring with a Cub 'Belt Loop Bash' concurrent with our Spring Fling. Future efforts will include:
a. An outdoor day program for new Tiger Cubs in conjunction with Fall Fellowship.
b. The development of teams of Arrowmen to assist packs with crossovers.
c. Assistance with Blue and Gold celebrations.
d. Reinstatement of the Boy Scout 101 program at each chapter.
e. Recognition of those Arrowmen who serve as Den Chiefs, as well as Cubmasters who are Arrowmen, usually from their days as youth.
f. Recognition of Cubmaster of the Year at our Winter Banquet.
g. Financial support of Cub Day Camps and Cub Scout programs.

We believe that the future benefits of the program will include:
a. An enhanced appreciation of the Order of the Arrow by Cub Scouts and their leaders.
b. More Cubs would stay in the Cub program due to enhanced program.
c. More Cubs would emulate the Arrowmen and desire to cross over into Boy Scouts.
d. More Arrowmen would see a purpose for themselves within the lodge and become active members.
e. An overall improvement of council recruitment and retention.

We hope that you are as excited about this change as we are. This is a bold move for a lodge, but we think that the end result will be a more robust program for the lodge members, and for Scouting in Central New Jersey Council as a whole. We hope that you will become more active with the lodge and help us support our 'brothers in blue' as we help them progress along the Scouting trail!

Interested? Get started by coming to the Spring Fling and get involved!
