Scouting is alive at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!
Cub Scouting is a year-round family-oriented part of the BSA program designed for boys who are in first through fifth grades (or are 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Cub Scouting is fun! But it is fun with a purpose. Woven through all the fun is an inspiring program that works. The methods of Cub Scouting are on the cutting edge of child development. Proven methods are used that transfer traditional values, build character, and develop leadership skills – all in the context of fun and family togetherness.
As a parent, you want a boy to grow up to be a person of worth – a self-reliant, dependable, and caring individual. Cub Scouting keeps these outcomes in mind by weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, developing good citizenship, and enhancing personal fitness in youth.
These values help a boy make good decisions throughout his lifetime and give him confidence as he grows and develops. Regardless of the quality of their environment (the people, places, and things), all boys grow. But their environment makes the difference in whether they grow in desirable ways.
Scouting is an effective way to help Catholic youths to do their duty to God and to their country. Scouting builds character and teaches devotion to God in an environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models. The scouting programs provide a wonderful channel to involve youth in the life of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish..
At Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish our Pack is very active with activities like camping, sporting events, community service projects, fundraising and the ever popular Pinewood Derby. Everything we do is centered around the Core Values of Scouting and our faith. All of our Scouts are encouraged to carry on their experiences to Boy Scouts, which is the next level. Opportunities for advancement awards and patches galore provide the boys with a sense of achievement.
Our Pack activities include camping in the Fall and Winter, yard cleanup for the elderly in our community, craft projects with wood and other materials, Summer Day Camp, Blue & Gold dinner and advancement ceremony, participation in Scout Sunday services and volunteering for Parish activities.
Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month during the school year. We meet in the Knights Hall (Church basement) at 7:00 p.m.
