On the left side of our Website, under "Menu", is "Activity Ideas - Month by Month (Many!)" which is just that ... ideas for Unit activities, especially for Cub Scout Families, Dens and Packs, because  If it's Fun for Kids, Fun for Families, and Safe -- then it's Cub Scouting!!  Not only does that page include the "Great Big List of Places to Go and Things to Do" (which really has a lot of great ideas), but in the page we highlight some events that Packs and Dens might want to jump on, like: 

 May: End of Year Party or Event? 

  • The next Scout day at the Braves is May 6 -- the first one at SunTrust Park -- with parade around the field.   For more "Scout Days / Nights" in the activities calendar of the Atlanta Area Council Website for Scout Days with various teams.  
  • Maybe a Day Hike or Bike Ride or Bike Rodeo or Fishing Day? You can do any of those, and even use those to invite new members to join your unit -- like Kindergarten Families! If it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe, put on some great activities you can use to invite new boys to join and that would be fun for your current boys too. 
  • Maybe a Fishing Day? Maybe at Camp Bel Tel? Or Sweetwater Creek State Park
  • Do your Pack's Blue & Gold Banquet when it is convenient for you; yes, traditionally done in February because that's Scouting's birthday, but Scouting is kind, helpful, etc. and wants you to celebrate when it's easy and fun for you)
  • Perhaps participate in the World Wide Jamboree on the Trail?
  • Or go somewhere on the Great Big List of Places to Go and Things to Do ... contact them, and see what you can do, and what special events they are having. 

June/July: Summer Camps, Day/Twilight Camps and Other Options -- Get Outdoors!

Summer Camp for Cub Scouts is ...

... the most fun thing you and your son can do during Cub Scout Years.  See this Cub Scout Summer Camp information.  Several 3 night options, and a five night option for current 3rd and 4th Grade Scouts.  You can go as a group (pack, den, whatever), or go as a child/parent pair.   But go!  and see this new 30 second BSA "Camping with Cub Scouts" video

Did you know ...

... kindergarten boys and their families are ready to join your Pack!  They can become "Tigers" right as school ends, and go to Twilight Camp, Cub Adventure Camp, and your fun familiy activities (like fishing or swimming at the local pool or movies on the green or go see the 4th of July fireworks or go to a Braves game or biking or whatever is fun for you) so ... why not be in touch with them now and get them hooked on Scouting?  How?

  • Maybe have a "year end" pack party with a graduation ceremony into the next rank ... and welcome new Tigers as part of that.   
  • Have a Cub Scout pack participation in year end school events. 
  • Get Twilight Camp information out to school families.  They can join up and have Twilight Camp as their first event!
  • Plan some fun family activities ... if it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe, then it's Cub Scouting!
