Cub Scout Pack 95

Shades Valley Lutheran Church in Homewood

Scouting grows young boys into young men

Citizenship. Perspective. Community involvement. Independence. Collaboration.

These are the qualities and strengths Scout mom Catherine watches develop in her son as he participates in Scouting. In this video you will hear her share how her only child feels the camaraderie of a troop as tight as siblings. He’s grown up with his best friends, as they share experiences in the life-changing adventures ushered by Scouting.

And Catherine’s son isn’t the only one who feels part of the Scouting family. Catherine explains how parents and volunteers are embraced in a network of support. She says it best “When you want to grow a young boy into a young man, you really don’t have a better choice than Scouting.”

Cub Scouts, it’s not just a club, it’s a family

The great thing about Cub Scouts is it involves the whole family. And not just a certain family types. Scouting makes a profound difference in supporting traditional and single parent households. It provides the support network needed to help young boys develop the character and servant leadership skills that will contribute to their success later in life. In this video Becky, a single mom, describes how scouting has helped out her son and has made a difference in her life as well.

Cub Scouts can make a difference in your family

There is only so much time we have left with your children before they grow up, move out and start families of their own. As parents, we cherish the time we have left and we look for ways that we can be together and grow as a family. As Michelle says in the video, “scouting really does make the most the time we have left with our child.”

Scouting is a family opportunity and there is a place for families just like yours. We have even expanded to include kindergarten age boys. Pack 95 is one of a handful of Pack’s around Alabama that are involved in this pilot program to involve younger scouts.

Red Mountain Park Hike June 2016

Red Mountain Park Hike June 2016

The cubs of Pack 95 went for a walk in the woods last weekend. Specifically then went to Red Mountain Park for a hike. We hiked to the top of Red Mountain to visit a favorite destination of ours, the Skyhy treehouse where we took a picture of the cubs. We worked our way down the mountain to the Redding Shaft Mine and then made our way back to the entrance of the park.

Along the way, we pointed out all the Eagle Projects that had been constructed in the park. We only saw a few of the many in the park. These included bridges, kiosks, benches and bat houses.

This hike was the second of two events the Pack has had during the month of July. Cubs who participated in either of these activities are eligible for the Summer Pack Award Pin. They need to attend an event in July and again in August.

Our next event is the Summer Soaker which will be held at Shades Valley Lutheran Church on July 9 from 9 am to 1 pm. More information on this event will be sent at a later time.
