Leadership

Cub Scouting leaders support the family

Hello, my name is Eric Laub and I’m the Cubmaster (Pack Leader) for Natick Pack 310. My role within the pack is to work alongside the other volunteer leaders to ensure the Cub Scouting program works the way it should throughout the year.

I have been a resident in Natick for 18 years and involved in Cub Scouting for 5 years. I took over the leadership role in 2017.

The pack is split into Dens. Each Den is led by a Den Leader, who is also a parent of a scout in that Den.

A number of other people also contribute to the support of the Pack. Members of the community, parents, teachers and other packs all work together to enrich the experience.

DEN LEADERS

The monthly pack meeting brings together scouts from every den, their leaders, and their families, to participate in a large-scale event that serves as a showcase for everything the scouts have learned and done in their individual den meetings. The pack meeting gives the boys and girls a larger experience beyond their own den, and helps them to connect their individual activities to the entire Cub Scouting program.

Lions

A Scouting program for kindergarten-age girls and boys is now available.

The Lion program weaves traditional Scouting concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun for the scouts and their parents.

The activities introduce the family to Cub Scouting and provide an exciting way for children to explore the world around them. The program will fuel their imagination, creativity, and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide. At the end of the Lion year, they “graduate” to Tiger and advance through Cub Scouting.

Tiger Cubs is for firstgrade girls and boys (or those who are 7 years old) and their adult partners. In the Tiger Cub den, this team is introduced to the excitement of Cub Scouting as they tread the Tiger trail. The Tiger Cub den builds stronger families through involvement in a program that is flexible and fun for the boys and the adults. A shared leadership component, where a den leader works with the boy and adult partner teams, gives everyone input into the operation of the activities

Webelos

A child who is in the fourth or fifth grade is a Webelos Scout, and their adventures are found in the Webelos Handbook.

If a child is a new Cub Scouts they first earn the Bobcat badge. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they go on to complete the requirements for the Webelos rank and then onto the Arrow of Light and the many electives that are offered. If a child joins in the fourth grade they earn the Webelos rank and then the Arrow of Light. If a child joins in the fifth grade they may start working on the Arrow of Light without earning the Webelos rank first.

The Webelos program is designed to prepare Cub Scouts to join a Scouts BSA Troop in February of their fifth-grade year.

A scout who is in the fourth or fifth grade is a Webelos Scout, and their adventures are found in the Webelos Handbook. Once a scout has completed their Webelos rank requirements or a new scout joins Cub Scouting in the fifth grade, they may work on Arrow of Light requirements Like all other new Cub Scouts, an Arrow of Light Scout must first earn their Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they may go on to complete the requirements for the Arrow of Light rank and the many electives that are offered for their rank.

All Cub Scouts, except for those scouts who join Cub Scouting for the first time in fifth grade, must earn their Webelos rank prior to earning Arrow of Light. The requirements for Webelos and Arrow of Light may be worked on at the same time but the tenure requirements for each must be met and the awards must be earned and presented sequentially.
