It's 2018 and the Boy Scouts of America is introducing the new Family Program! You probably know that means girls will now be allowed into the Cub Scouting program, but you might be wondering how it’s all going to work. As National Alliances Team Lead, Lee Shaw has had to work closely with all the various Chartered Organizations on ensuring a smooth transition into Scouting’s new Family Program. He joins us to answer questions about what this new program looks like.
Joining us for this reverent topic is Jason Nolan, who teaches a course on religious emblems at Philmont Training Center in Cimarron, New Mexico, and has been the CEO of P.R.A.Y. for a little over a year. He currently serves on the National Religious Relationships Support Committee.
A loyal listener contacted the CubCast mailbox and wanted to know if we could devote to entire episode on clever ways to get every parent involved in Den and Pack meetings. Well, we aim to please, so we invited the National Director of Cub Scouting Anthony Berger who was also a Cubmaster. His pack started with 8 boys and within a few short years grew to 35 with lots of parent participation (although it didn’t start out that way). Amy and Aaron discuss with Anthony the clever methods that he used to get almost every parent involved in the pack.
