  1. Same CO...multiple CORs

    Our COR does not go to council. I know that for a fact. We live about a hour from the council center. The CO doesn’t really want to be involved. They love having us there and helping them clean up for events, etc. but they don’t really get involved besides signing off on the application. He’s more just a name on paper. Never attended a meeting either.
  2. Same CO...multiple CORs

    I don’t know a single COR around me that has ever even interacted with council. Mostly the CC’s do it.
  3. Exactly. Some may only do cub scouts and not go into Boy Scouts because of sports, etc. but want to do cub scouts still. My den (as a youth) had around 12 people and we had 3 troops we could’ve chose. (1 as a pack feeder then 2 in another town right next to us). My whole den picked the one Troop. There’s only 2 of us left out of the 12. Most of them got involved in other youth groups (religious ones), sports, etc.
  4. Personal Scouting Goals

    You have to make it fun for you somehow.
  5. Storage ideas

    You say “does not offer”, but have you ever asked?
  6. YPT

    Why was venturing YPT changed if it stays the same?
  7. Good Council/District program examples

    That’s the council I was thinking about.
  8. Lions now an official Cub Scout rank and program

    And I think wolves are too young from what I see at daycamp sometimes.
  9. Good Council/District program examples

    Really? I never knew that! I know patriots path merged with another council a while and go. I thought they merged with the one that was in north jersey? My apologizes.
  10. New around here

    Cubmaster is a big task! Thanks for getting involved into scouting right away with your son! Theres plenty of information on this forum that can help you!
  11. Coolest Scout Troop Location?

    Woah! You gotta name it. I know a Troop around me named their donated building “The Scout Hut” many people just call it “The Hut”
  12. EBOR question

    I’m assuming the SM has never been involved in scouting?
  13. Good Council/District program examples

    Interesting! I believe there is only 2 councils in NJ, and one council has 2, and I’m not sure how many the other one has but has atleast one. They both provide bussing that I know of. The bus routes do end up being a hour long, but it’s not too bad. Most scouts on my bus slept in the morning and then in the afternoon since they had fun!

    Your day camp does not provide bussing?
  15. Good Council/District program examples

    Qwaze’s post reminded me of something else a day camp does. In October or November they open for a weekend and any kid can come for free with their parents and basically experience a day at camp (besides things like fishing, canoeing). Staff from the camp usually come back and volunteer.
