Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.
Midwest Islamic Scouting Council (MISC) offers a collaborative Family Scouting Program with a combined Pack Calendar full of fun and learning in an Islamic environment for all of the communities we serve.
In den meetings and pack meetings, Cub Scouts make new friends, play purposeful games, and learn new things. Dens usually meet two times a month. All the dens in the pack come together once a month for a pack meeting.
Cub Scout families have opportunities to go camping and to participate in outdoor adventures. Lessons learned in the out-of- doors help to develop a life-long respect for the environment.
Packs can put together special events and activities such as banquets, races, and community service projects.
Several packs may be invited to attend other special events such as a large community service project or Scout Show. These events are coordinated by a local councils or districts.
The Packs are chartered through Midwest Islamic Scouting Council (MISC).
To make Cub Scouting work it takes a team made up of each Cub Scout’s parent or guardian and other caring adults who agree to take on roles that best fit their individual talents. Together this team makes up the Pack Committee.
The packs have a pack committee, which consists of at least three members (chair, secretary, and treasurer). By handling administrative and support tasks, the pack committee allows the Cubmaster, den leaders, and their assistants to focus on working directly with the Cub Scouts.
The Pack Committee meets once a month. At the committee meeting reports from the Cubmaster, Den Leaders, Treasurer and others help keep everyone informed.
The leader of the pack meeting is the Cubmaster. In addition to serving as the master of ceremonies the Cubmaster provides support to Den Leaders.
The pack is made up of several dens which are a small group of Cub Scouts who are the same gender and in the same grade.
An adult, usually a parent, serves as a Den Leader. They carry out the activities related to adventures as they are presented in the Cub Scout’s handbook and the Den Leader Guide.
