The Cub Scouting Program
Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Boys who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade, can no longer join Cub Scouting.
Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack at the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Since its beginning Cub Scouts has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. It provides a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities. Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.
As a program for the entire family, Cub Scouting can help families teach their children a wholesome system of values and beliefs while building and strengthening relationships among family members.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scouting activities the boys learn core values. The Cub Scout Promise, The Law Of The Pack, and the Cub Scout Sign, The Handshake, The Motto, and The Salute all teach good citizenship, duty to God, duty to family, and contribute to a boy’s sense of belonging.
Since 1967 Pack 370 has been chartered by Green Acres Baptist Church on Troup Hwy in Tyler, TX. Pack 370 has a rich history of scouting in the Tyler community, celebrating 50 years of Cub Scouting in 2017. Our pack is part of the Wohalidistrict within the East Texas Area Council. Like all Cub Scout Packs, we are completely made up of adult volunteers who manage the pack and lead the boys.
Adult volunteers are typically family members of the boys and are both members and non-members of Green Acres Baptist Church. If you are interested in joining, volunteering, or helping in any capacity please email the Cubmaster or Committee Chair.
We meet Monday nights at 6:00 pm on the 2nd floor in the Adult Education Buildng. Meetings are typically one hour long. For upcoming events please reference the calendar on this website.
The boys become a part of a “Den” of their peers and are led by an adult Den Leader.
Dens are a group boys of the same school age as follows:
Boys will participate in many fun activities throughout the year. These include the annual Pine Wood Derby in January. There are also at least two opportunities a year for you and your boys to go camping, once in the fall and once in the spring. Additionally, there are other opportunities for community service, learning, field trips, and individual achievement.
