Welcome New Scouting Families
Our camping committee also has great programs including summer camps and year round activities for Scouts and families. Check out the camping page.
Below are articles to help you get started on learning about the Scouting program and structure, purchasing a uniform and activities to do with your Scout.
Things for Parents To Do
A parents’ primary role is to be a cheerleader for your Scout. However, parents are also needed to fulfill volunteer roles to ensure the Scouts receive the best program possible. Some parents become a leader and run a den or have another role in the pack, others organize an event or outing, others bring snack. There are many ways to be involved. Once you do, you’ll be surprise how rewarding it is for you. For any role you choose, it is important that you receive training.

Cub Scout Opportunities
Check out our Cub Scout Opportunities Page for activities, programs, shows, sporting events and much more that you can do with your family or Scout unit. Many activities are offered by a group within Patriots’ Path such as the camping group, the STEM group as well as outside groups that have programs for Scouts or minor league and national sports teams that have Scout nights. These programs and events have a discount for Scouts or specific dates.
National Summertime Pack
Your new Scout can earn an award and the summertime pin by doing activities during the summer (one each month). It’s a good opportunity to check out the Cub Opportunities page and see what ball games and other activities Scouts and their families can do.
All parents would benefit from taking Youth Protection Training to learn the rules all must follow when working with Scouts in order to keep them safe. It is a required training if you want to be a leader. It is offered online or in person. We suggest you take it in person the first time to learn more and have all your questions answered.
Cub Scout Leader Training is offered to all leaders for the specific role they are undertaking; den leader, cubmaster, committee chair, etc.
University of Scouting occurs each December and has over 100 courses to help you increase your Scouting knowledge and provide a great program for your Scouts. Scroll through our council’s training page for training opportunities.
