Cub Scout Sign Up Night

It's time to kick off a new year in Pack 1910 and we want YOU to join us!  Our annual Cub Scout Sign Up night will be Tuesday, September 1 at 6:30 p.m.

If you picked up a flier at Ridgeview Elementary's Meet the Teacher or at our Raingutter Regatta, this is the night we've been talking about!  Are you ready to see what all Pack 1910 has in store for YOU this year?  Be sure to stop by Tuesday night, September 1, and sign up with the Pack!

WHO:       Boys in 1st - 5th grade in the Keller and surrounding areas
WHAT:     Cub Scout Pack 1910 Sign Up Night
WHERE:    First United Methodist Church of Keller, Hallelujah Center 
                1025 Johnson Road, Keller
COST:     $115 through NEXT December!  ($40 for this year and $75 for all of next year)
WHEN:      Tuesday, September 1, 6:30 pm - 8:00 p.m. come and go
WHY:        Because -- IT IS FUN!  

Scouting promotes and encourages family togetherness.  Time is a valuable commodity and what better way to spend it than investing in lasting memories with your son.  More than ever, today’s families struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your son to do things together.
Your son needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Through this sense of belonging, he builds his self-esteem and learns to get along with others. As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, physical fitness and spiritual growth. The Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.
In a society where your son is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouting teaches him to “do his best” and to be helpful to others.  Servant leadership.

He will learn to live by the code of “On my honor.”

But... we know that boys do not join Cub Scouting to get their character built.  Boys join Scouts.... because it's fun!!!

Our program is full but it's not complete without YOU!  If you are unable to attend Cub Scout Sign Up Night, please complete the informational form on the website and someone from our membership committee will be in touch with you shortly. However, the best way to start is to jump in with both feet and be ready to have fun!  

Your adventure starts Tuesday!  We look forward to meeting you!

Meet the Teacher - Ridgeview Elementary

Thank you to everyone at Ridgeview Elementary School who stopped to visit with us at the Cub Scouts information table.  We appreciate your time and your interest in our program!

So, you have the flyer... you may have even jotted your contact information on the list... your son and your family have the interest in Scouting.  So... what's next?  

Oh yeah...TO JOIN CUB SCOUTS!  If you signed up for more information or you took a flier with all of our information on it -- it will lead you back here, to our blog.  And I'm here to tell you our sign up night is...

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 at 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

First United Methodist Church Keller
Hallelujah Center
1025 Johnson Road, Keller

If you have an questions, please don't hesitate to contact April Driggers, your Committee Chair, or John Waskow, your Cubmaster, respectively at and/or

The format for the evening will be come and go with a sign-in at the door and then you will work your way through the few tables we have set up to talk ... discover... see our activity calendar... sign up... grab a rocket for our November rocket launch and you're SET!

We are so excited about all that's in store this year.  We just KNOW it's going to be our GREATEST YEAR yet!!!

This is a FANTASTIC way to get established within the pack immediately so that you can be in gear to go camping with in September at Fossil Rim.  More information about that trip can be found by clicking {HERE}.

Fossil Rim Overnighter is on the Horizon

Mark your calendars and save the date Cub Scouts!  Our over-nighter at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose is on the horizon!

This is a new experience for our Pack and was added to our "special events" rotation so that our boys and their families could enjoy a varied program that provided unique opportunities of all variety.

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is nestled amidst the live oak thickets, limestone outcroppings, and stands of juniper in the rustic hills of Somervell County.  It's a sanctuary for endangered species. Their goal is promoting the preservation and procreation of threatened/endangered species, environmental awareness, and a recreational and educational experience for people of all ages. 

We will check in Saturday morning, September 20 into climate-controlled cabins and then enjoy a full program of activities.

Lunch, dinner, a campfire program, a safari adventure and three educational experiences along with breakfast are included with your payment of $93.50 per person.  Credit cards are accepted but will incur a service charge.

One of the educational adventures we will learn about is capture techniques used by the vets at Fossil Rim.  Being a wildlife veterinarian there isn't easy, and in this program our Scouts will learn about some of the dangerous tasks the vets undertake in the field.  They will learn what it means to work with wild animals, learn about what training and precautions must be taken and hear real stories of what goes on behind the scenes at the park.  Each Scout will be able to test their "vet-ability" as they participate in a hands-on activity as well.

Another educational opportunity we will have will be a class called "Dyeing From Nature." Scouts will be taken back through time to an era when man turned to nature for his needs.  On this journey of discovery, they will have an opportunity to experiment with native natural dye -- one that is even still used today on a daily basis.  For this class, each kiddo needs to bring a pre-washed, white t-shirt! (Hand-made souvenirs!  What can be better?!)

I just know this will be one of the adventures everyone will remember with Pack 1910. Make sure you log into ScoutBook and RSVP today!

Through Scouting you forge relationships and become a family.  It's not just a leader running a den that has nothing to do with the other dens... In Cub Scouts, we all share a common bond not only with our Cub Scouts dens but with all families in our Pack.  This accepting, loving, supportive family atmosphere is something we could all use a lot more of.  Thinking about what we do?  Come check out Scouting today!  Click here

We will be having our Cub Scout Sign Up Night September, 1, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church of Keller's Hallelujah Center.  Please, if you know someone you think would be a great asset to our family of 1910 Scouts, bring them along!  We look forward to meeting you!
