PACK 94 BYLAWS

 

ARTICLE 1. INTRODUCTION

 

1.01 The purpose of these bylaws is to assist in the definition of roles and duties of the Pack, Dens, Leaders, Scouts and Parents. Any perceived conflict between these bylaws, Cub Scout Leader Book or BSA policy should be brought to the attention of the Pack 94 Committee Chairperson or Cubmaster as soon as possible. These bylaws and Pack Policy cannot override BSA Policy.

 

ARTICLE 2. CHARTER

 

2.01 Pack 94 is chartered by St. Marks Church of Kendall. The chartered organization provides a suitable meeting place and facilities for Pack meetings, adult

leadership,  and opportunities for a healthy Scouting life for the boys under its care.

2.02 Pack 94 is the Scouting Unit that conducts Cub Scouting for The Kendall Area.

 

ARTICLE 3. PURPOSE OF CUB SCOUTING

 

3.01 The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America – incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916 – is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build desirable qualities of character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.

3.02 Since 1930, the BSA has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. Cub Scouting (including Tiger Cubs) 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). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the 10 purposes of Cub Scouting.

3.03 The Purposes of Cub Scouting are:

• Character Development

• Spiritual Growth

• Good Citizenship

• Sportsmanship and Fitness

• Family Understanding

• Respectful Relationships

• Personal Achievement

• Friendly Service

• Fun and Adventure

• Preparation for Boy Scouts

All the activities leaders plan and boys enjoy should relate to one or more of these purposes. These purposes help achieve the overall aims of the BSA of character

development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.

• Support and take part in all Pack activities including attending monthly Pack meetings and Den meetings.

• Volunteer in a Pack Committee or help occasionally at Pack meetings or with special Pack activities.

If it is another person in the Den, contact the Den Leader first. If the problem is with the Den Leader or Assistant Den Leader, meet with that person if

at all possible. If the problem is not resolved or if you are not comfortable talking with the Den Leader or Assistant(s), contact the Cubmaster, or Pack Committee Chair.

Den meetings may be planned around the monthly theme and should pertain to advancement and/or elective awards. The location of the Den meetings can be different. Each Den chooses the structure of its own Den. This includes the day, time and location of their meetings.

11.02 Pack Meeting --Pack meetings are usually scheduled for the first friday evening of each month at St. Marks at 7:00pm.

11.04 Pack Committee Meeting --Meetings are normally held once a month at 6:30 p.m. on the first Friday evening of the month at St. Marks, prior to the Pack meeting.

 

ARTICLE 12. ADVANCEMENT

 

12.01 Advancement is a boy-friendly experience and one of the methods used to achieve Scouting aims and purposes of Cub Scouting. It is the process by which a boy progresses from badge to badge, and gives boys a means of measuring their progress. Advancement provides a satisfying means of recognizing boys for their progress. Advancement is not a competition among boys.

12.02 The Cub Scout Program has four ranks: Tigers, Wolf, Bear and Webelos. The Arrow of Light is the highest award in Cub Scouts. Advancement ceremonies are conducted in accordance with the Pack calendar to permit each boy to advance one rank per year for his grade (or age).

12.03 TIGER CUB – A boy who is in first grade (or is 6 years old) and registered with his adult parent as a member of a Tiger Cub Den. Recognition available to Tiger Cub Scouts includes beads earned for their totem. Furthermore Tiger Cub Scouts are not expected to pass the Bobcat requirements until they form a Wolf Den.

12.04 BOBCAT -- A boy's first step after registering as a Cub Scout, regardless of his age but excluding Tigers, is to pass the Bobcat requirements. They are:

• Learn and give the Cub Scout Promise.

• Repeat and explain the Law of the Pack

• Explain the meaning of Webelos.

• Give and explain the Cub Scout sign and handshake.

• Give and explain the Cub Scout motto and salute.

• When a boy has learned these things he is eligible to receive his Bobcat badge at a

Pack Ceremony. He then begins working on the rank for his grade or age.

12.05 WOLF -- The Wolf rank is for boys who are in second grade (or are 7 years old). To become a Wolf Cub Scout, a boy must pass 12 achievements based on skill level. After he has earned the Wolf badge, he is encouraged to continue working on the 22 Wolf electives until he completes second grade (or age 8 years old). When he completes 10 elective projects, he earns a Gold Arrow Point to wear under the Wolf badge. For each additional 10 elective projects completed, he earns a Silver Arrow Point. Arrow Points may be earned but not awarded until after the Wolf badge has been earned.

12.06 BEAR -- The Bear rank is for boys who are in third grade (or are 8 years old). There are 24 Bear achievements of his choice in four different categories to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf. When he has earned his Bear badge, he may work on electives for credit toward Bear arrow points. He may also complete additional elective credit requirements from the 12 achievements he did for use in earning his Bear rank. Like the Wolf, he receives a Gold Arrow Point for the first 10 electives he completes, and a Silver Arrow for each additional 10 electives completed. The arrow points are worn below the Bear badge. Arrow Points may be earned but not awarded until the Bear badge has been earned.

12.07 WEBELOS -- The Webelos badge is for boys who are in fourth grade (or are 9 years old). This rank is called Webelos 1. Webelos 2 are in fifth grade (or are 10 years old). Both work on the same requirements. To earn the Webelos Badge, a boy must be in a Webelos Den for 3 or more months. He must complete 8 requirements, which includes earning the Fitness and 2 other activity pins. After he receives the Webelos badge he can earn the Compass Point emblems. He must earn four additional activity pins to receive it. He can earn a compass point for each four additional activity pins received.

12.08 THE ARROW OF LIGHT AWARD -- The Arrow of Light Award is Cub Scouting's highest award. Among the requirements to earn the Arrow of Light Award is to earn a total of eight activity pins. They must include Citizen, Fitness, Readyman and at least one from each of the following groups: outdoor group, the mental skills group and the technology group. Earning the Arrow of Light Award tells everyone that the boy is ready to be a Boy Scout.

 

ARTICLE 13. ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS

 

13.01 Religious Awards Programs -- The Boys Scouts of America does not define what constitutes belief in God or the practice of religion. Rather, it provides programs and ideals that compliment the aims of all religions, with the result that religious organizations are the single largest category of chartered organizations for Packs. Pack 94 encourages all Cub Scouts to earn the religious awards for his faith.

13.02 Academic And Sports Programs --This is a program open for all Cub Scouts. The boys can earn belt loops, pins, patches and letters for participating in the following academics/sports: art, chess, citizenship, communicating, computers, geography, heritages, mathematics, music, science, weather, wildlife conservation, badminton, baseball, basketball, bicycling, bowling, fishing, golf, gymnastics, marbles, physical fitness, skating, skiing, soccer, softball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, ultimate and volleyball.

13.03 Other Awards – Cub Scouting also permits boys to earn awards in specialized areas including the Leave No Trace Award and World Conservation.

13.04 Patches And Patch Vest -- Cub Scouts earn many patches. Many of these are awards of rank, which becomes a permanent part of their uniform. There are also patches related to events and projects which are generally not part of the uniform. Boys are encouraged to display their non-uniform patches on a vest or blanket.
