The Cub Scout program is open to boys for the 1st through 5th grades culminating in crossing over to Boy Scouts in the month of March during the 5th grade. There is a reason for everything boys do in Cub Scouting. Apart from the fun and excitement, the aim of Cub Scouting is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit. Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose.
Tiger Cubs is a 1st grade offering during which the boy works primarily with his family and engages in a number of “go see ‘um” activities such as visiting a Firehouse, The Butter Fly House, and many other interesting St. Louis attractions.
During the 2nd and 3rd grades, the boy progresses to the Wolf and Bear activity levels meeting once or twice per month in a small group called a den. In the 4th and 5th grades, the boy joins the Webelo 1 and 2 dens. These Cub and Webelo scouts work on a variety of activities and skills.
Monthly Pack meetings for all those in Cub Scouts are held at 7:00pm on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May in the school cafeteria. Each pack meeting has a specific theme, such as:
· September: Back to School and sign-up
· November: Food for Scouting
· January: Pinewood Derby
· May: Big Event for all the family
The Cub Scout program offers over 65 skill achievements including two Catholic awards, Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei. The patron saint of scouting is St. George the Martyr. (See the link on the left section of this page for more information on Cub Scouting and the religious awards.)
During the summer months, our St. Clement Cub Pack 624 participates in the Dad and Lad weekend at S-F Scout Ranch and the Webelos Minicamp at Beaumont Scout Reservation.
St. Clement’s Cub Pack 624 has 60 boys and 10 adult leaders.
