NEWSBRIEF: Sign up for Scouting Sept. 19

Parents of boys and girls in grades K-5 can sign their children up for Scouting online today or at one of more than 700 local joining events taking place at all elementary schools. From 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, more than 2,000 volunteers will be ready to answer questions and take registrations or, if they prefer, parents can register their children online immediately at www.JoinCubs.org.

In addition to fun and adventure, Scouting gives members a “ScoutLook on Life,” instilling self-reliance, confidence, responsibility and teamwork. These skills and experiences will change how they see the world, and the benefits last a lifetime.

Every youth who joins Cub Scouts will receive a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt and a pass for free admission to fall day camp. They are introductory half-day programs at local camps featuring archery, climbing, STEM, crafts, games and more each weekend in October.

Cub Scouts do a wide range of indoor and outdoor age-appropriate activities to safely expand their limits and abilities, fulfill award requirements and be recognized for their accomplishments. They also develop a spirit of service by helping others in the community. Local Scouts performed more than 160,000 hours of community service last year alone.
