Found in the 1993 Pikes Peak Council Pow Wow book and adapted to include all scouts. This can be used as opening ceremony for either a den or pack meeting.Read More
The following are some items that you as a parent can do to "help the pack go"
- Be sure your boy attends weekly Den Meetings. Remind him to be on his best behavior while he is there. He is a guest in the Den Leader's Home.
- Remind him to wear his uniform to school on Den Meeting days, or at least have it laid out and ready to go so he can change quickly. Have his uniform clean and all appropriate patches sewn on so he looks great at all scout function.
- Be willing to help out with transportation for Den Meetings, field trips, etc. Help him to provide den treats when it is his turn.
- HELP HIM TO ACHIEVE! Read his handbook, familiarize yourself with his requirements, many of them are done with the family, and at home. Read the parents supplement at the front of his book.
- Make sure that you Cub is doing his very best. Don't sign off achievements unless he has really earned each part of it. Don't count things he did as a wolf toward his bear. He needs to do each item during that year.
- ATTEND PACK MEETING with your son. Be alert to his behavior during the meeting, the Den Leader is not solely responsible for him, or his actions during pack meeting.
- Be willing to assist with costumes, skits, crafts, outings, refreshments, Scout-O-Ramma, etc.
- Always remember that Cub Scouting is Family Oriented. It is designed to help parents with their boys. The Den and Pack CANNOT help your boy grow without your help.

1F: Think of one chore you can do with your adult partner. Complete it together.
Take a second and think of a few of the chores around your house.... The following are some around my house.
- Feeding the Dog and Cat
- Washing the Windows
- Taking Out the Trash
We can lighten the load of work when each member of the family helps out with the chores around the house. The same is in your Dens and Packs. When each scout does his duty, it helps the pack go.
