Sometimes a new family might come in with a little bit of anxiety—maybe they’re not exactly sure what they’ve gotten themselves into—and it’s important that we make them comfortable. These new parents are future Cubmasters or den leaders or even just good resources for your den or pack. It’s important that we make them feel comfortable and actually glad that they’ve joined the Cub Scouting family. Joining us is Winnie Lee of Pack 681 in the San Diego-Imperial Council’s Rancho Mesa District. As she tells us – it all begins with welcoming the families. How do we do that? Let’s find out.
We’ve got something brand new to talk about for this episode, something called (drum roll, please) preview adventures. Hmm, you might be saying to yourself, I wonder what that’s about?
Joining us to tell us all about this exciting new initiative is Lisa Wylie, the brand-new chair for the National Cub Scouting Committee.
This episode is all about training: why it’s important, how to get trained, and everything you need to know about training. Longtime volunteer Grace Davidson wrote the scripts and provided content for the new e-learning training modules. Whether you’re new to Scouting or have been around the Scouting block a time or two, you’ll be left wondering, “With so many training opportunities available and all the fun and innovative ways to get that training, why didn’t I get trained sooner?”
