Parents are the life-blood of our pack!
Scouts BSA is a family activity. Parents, this is your Pack too - and taking responsibility to run it will give everyone involved (yourself included) a richer experience. In fact, all Cub Scout parents are expected to participate. In addition to attending our monthly Parent & Leader meetings (made up of leaders, parents, and other adults), we have numerous leadership positions that need to be filled every year, ranging from a once-a-year commitment to chair an event, to Den Leader to Pack Committee Members.
We encourage parents to consider a role in which they can best use their talents and skills (i.e., Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Pack Treasurer, Activities Chairs, or as an assistant to a position). And not to worry, there are plenty of training classes to help you along if you feel don't know what to do. Remember, all of the current adult leaders started where you are - so just jump right up and ask the Cubmaster or another leader how you can help.
