[August 23, 2017]  LINCOLN - Cub Scout Pack 101 will host an event for current and potential cub scouts at Kickapoo Street Park on Thursday, August 24 at 6:30 p.m.  Activities will include roasting s’mores, games and learning about plans for the pack during this scouting year.

Cub Scouting is designed for boys kindergarten through fifth grades and is a program that involves the entire family. Typically each age group has a den of 6-8 boys. There are currently 1.3 million Cub Scouts and 395,000 adult volunteers in the United States.

“Cub Scouts is an opportunity for boys to have fun while learning to do their best and to help others,” said Brent Kenney, Pack 101 Cubmaster. “The boys typically meet weekly and take part in a variety of activities and games. Each year we hold a pinewood derby, take part in service projects and complete activities that encourage the scouts to learn by doing.”

“Cub Scouts has been a great experience for not just my son, Henry, but for the entire family. During his first year he was able to meet new friends and learn new things while earning awards. He also enjoyed zip lining and camping together as a family,” said Angela Stoltzenburg.

Interested parents and their sons should meet at the flag pole across from the Boy Scout Area at Kickapoo Park. For more information, contact Cubmaster Brent Kenney at 217-737-5953 or Dana Alaniz at 309-424-2360.
