Scouting, a program proven to bring out the leaders of tomorrow, has been a strong force for more than 100 years.
Waupaca has had Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts for a number of decades, and this fall many youth joined in on the fun. These new families will be exposed to an educational program that builds character, trains in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
Cub Scouts is a year-round family-centered program that develops ethical decision-making skills, emphasizing leadership, learning about the community, and family understanding.
Boys can join Scouting as early as first grade. Towards the end of a boy’s fifth grade year they make the crossover to Boy Scouts. Boy Scouts is a year-round program for boys 11 through 17 that exposes them to outdoor skills and exciting programs, peer group leadership, and lots of fun.
Any boy can join Scouting at any time of the year. Waupaca’s community boasts two Cub Scout Packs and two Boy Scout Troops.
You and your son are invited by Cub Scout Pack 3677 and Boy Scout Troop 643 to their recruitment drive at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9, at St. Mary Magdalene’s Catholic Church, State Highway 22 at Shadow Road in Waupaca. Cost of registration for Boy or Cub Scouts is $26. All boys who register that night will be gifted a one year’s subscription to the Boy’s Life Magazine.
