ABOUT OUR PACK
WHAT IS CUB SCOUTING?
Cub Scouting is a neighborhood-centered program for boys in Years 2-6 (Grades 1-5, or ages 7-10). Cub Scouting was first organized in 1930, when the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) realized that younger brothers, neighbors, and friends had been tagging along on Boy Scout camp outs, service projects, and other activities but not reaping the full benefits of being a Boy Scout. To accommodate this younger generation of motivated boys, the BSA created Cub Scouting. This exciting and adventurous program became an instant hit. Today, Cub Scouting provides more than two million boys from all backgrounds with healthy doses of constructive fun and an underlying emphasis on traditional values and service.
WHAT IS PACK 12 SHANGHAI?
Cub Scout Pack 12 Shanghai is an official member of the Boy Scouts of America, chartered through Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS). Advancement and awards earned through our Pack are officially recognized in the United States and vice versa.
WHERE WE MEET
Cub Scouting takes place across our community.
WHO RUNS IT?
Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS) is our charter sponsor, and our Pack is led by a dedicated Pack Commitee and Den Leaders across various ranks. Most importantly, our Pack, Dens and Activities run on VOLUNTEER power, registration fees, and our own fundraising! Therefore, parents (both moms and dads) interested in having their sons participate must be ready to volunteer and take on their share of responsibilities to ensure we offer a great experience for our boys.
If you have prior scouting experience, that's terrific! But, no prior scouting experience is necessary. We have an extensive How-To library in development and we often Google best practices from other Packs.
We follow the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!
The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. Its uniforms help to create a sense of belonging. They symbolize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment.
The Class A uniform consists of:
Uniforms are required our Pack Meetings and Den Meetings. T- shirts can be worn for some outings, such as camping, hiking and outings.
