Code of Conduct

Scouting is a values-based program with it’s own code of conduct.  The Scout Oath and Law help instill the values of good conduct, respect for others, and honesty.  Scouting has instilled in young men the values and knowledge that they will need to become leaders in their communities and country.

Pack 98 is committed to maintaining a program for our youth which is committed to the values of good conduct, respect, and honesty.  In working with our Chartering Organization, Fort Collins First United Methodist Church, we have developed a written Code of Conduct to help outline expectations and support for Scouts, parents/families, and leaders,  The goal is to provide a positive, safe, and enriching environment for all scouts.  At annual re-chartering time, we request each Scout and parent/family to review the Code of Conduct.  If the Scout wishes to abide by the Code, they will sign the form, along with their parent/family, and return the signed Code of Conduct form to the Den Leader or Cubmaster.

If there are any questions about this Code of Conduct, please contact Matt Putman, Charter Organization Representative, at put83co@yahoo.com.

 

Rank Awards Information

A key feature of Cub Scouts is the progression of a cub scout through the rank system.  The link below has descriptions of the 6 ranks in Cub Scouts.

 

Other Awards

Cub Scouts love earning awards outside of the rank awards.  The link below has information on other awards cub scouts can earn.  Please contact your den leader if your son would like to work towards earning one of these awards.

 

Cyber Chip

A newer award is the Cyber Chip Award.  It is nothing new that children are spending more time online.  To address issues of cyberbullying, texting, blogging, safety, and identity theft, the BSA has created the Cyber Chip Award.  All Cyber Chips expire annually and scouts will need to “recharge” their Cyber Chip.  More information can be found at the link below.
