    Day Camp Ideas

    First off I would try to raise more money per boy some how It is almost impossible to put a good program for the boys with 3.00. You can look in the rank books and find Achievements that go with the theme and have the boys do them. Also you dont have to stick with them theme totally, I would still have some sports some sort of obsticle course. Maybe have the boys help construct it. This year Our theme is Cub Olympics we are hoping for 300 boys and 80 adults for a 6 day 1 night camp. Over nighter only for webelos and Parent.
  2. True but it is a easy way to get rid of him. Plus signing a new charter and getting a New Pack number is a way to distance your self from the old CM problems and ways start off new with a clean slate.
  3. No Offense to some of you on this thread but as a assistant cubmaster/denleader/ comittee member and I am day camp director/district committe member here is my Take on the situation. As there is not an active registered committee here is what I would suggest to do. Call a ADULT Meeting and at this meeting you want your self, the former CM, the COR, DE, Unit Commissioner, all parents in the Den any Temp or potentional Comittee members and sit and discuss all that is going on and if the former CM seeks to stay with the pack have the Charter Orginazation release his charter. And End that meeting dismissing the former CM and hand him his Charter and let him have any thing from old pack he wants dont fight it. Second Have all the same people there set Up a full comittee, CM and den leaders ect. Pick a new pack number and sign a New Charter. By doing this you not only resolve your problem with the CM you do not kick him out. He just loses his charter and you start a New Pack, clean slate and re-establish a new relationship with the packs Charter Orgization and Rep. This would take a lot of team work and re-building is not easy you can do as much but I just started a new pack from scratch this is our 2nd year and we are doing great. just work hard and keep up good work. For those that say shes out of line...I say GOOD sometimes it takes that one person to step out and up and say things are not right. If no-one did then we would not be where we are today You forget that Scouting was Started BY 1 man. And also REMEMBER WE ARE HERE FOR THE KIDS. Trust me if I had this problem me and the old CM would be having a little pow wow. also if the charter orgization wont get involved the FIND A NEW CHARTER ORGINAZTION
  4. Ok. I am a realitivly new to Scouting in my second year as assistant Cub master and going to soon be Cub Master. Here's my take on the whole matter. 1. Any pack that requires you to have the blue "scout" pants is isane. We made a decision to not require pants nor hats because alot of boys hate the hats. 2. I encourage all boys parents to buy the biggest blue shirt they can so that the boy can continue to Wear the Blue Shirt for 3-4 Years. Also all Webelos can buy the brown Scout shirt also buy it a little big so that they can wear it throughout their Boy scout years. No madder if the cubs had same uniform shirt or not then you would still buy atleast 2 shirts on average because of the way boys grow. 3. Neckerchiefs, slides.. Ever thought of making a Den Neckerchief slide because you stay in same den just move up as a den and the home made ones work better any way. The Neckerchief is to symbolize you rank you are working on it makes it easier to identify what boys you can ask to take on certain responsiblity. 4. Books and other yearly expenses that you incure. Ever thought about talking with your den or pack and doing an extra fundraiser or maybe have the boys do chores around the house, recycle cans. There are many ways for the boys to earn money and help learn responsibility for their scout stuff. 5. Furthermore the most important thing to always remember in scouting is ITS FOR THE KIDS. I am sure if you are hurting so bad for money that the pack can help with some things if you just ask also the Salvation army and goodwill are good places to find used uniforms or put a add in the paper requesting used uniforms.
