New video explains the Scouts BSA program designed for kids in K – 5th grade…

For those of us who grew up in Scouting wearing a blue and gold uniform, the question seems – well – unnecessary?

However, it’s important to understand that a whole new generation of children is coming to Scouts BSA.

Many families were not fortunate enough to live near a pack. Or, perhaps, someone in the family tried the program and, for whatever reason, it didn’t stick. Meanwhile, girls joining Cub Scouts remains a relatively new facet of the program. Maybe there was even a financial component to the decision to skip Scouting.

The reasons are myriad. So, it’s important for everyone to check out Cub Scouting with fresh eyes and with a notion to expand the program to more children than ever.

Perhaps you, the reader, come to contemporary Cub Scouting with lots of questions, even though you might have once been a Weblos (We’ll be loyal Scouts…) Scout.

In that (arrow of) light, the Mayflower Council presents the following video, designed to take the guesswork out of the equation and give new and old families alike an understanding of what so many of us know so well:

“Cub Scouts is a game with a purpose.”

Of course, if Cub Scouts is already part of your child’s world, be sure to forward this story along to a friend or family member whose kids might just be ready to put on the blue and gold.
