Boy Scouts of America recruiting for new school year
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- The Boy Scouts of America, Great Smoky Mountain Council, is inviting all youth to come join their ranks!
Scouting is fun with a purpose. Youth learn physical fitness, character, and good citizenship – all while having a great time with family and friends. Most importantly, Scouting encourages them to do their best – a lesson that will help them achieve success throughout their lives.
Scouting is an age-appropriate program. Depending on your child’s age, he will be a member of a pack. As Cub Scouts advance through the program, they are recognized for their achievements.
A leader (usually a parent) is in charge of the activities, which include games, crafts, songs, ceremonies, field trips, and tons of fun!
This year the Great Smoky Mountain Council is offering a FREE Rocket Kit to all new Cub Scouts!
If you would like to join email Nathan Cunningham at Nathan.firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you want to identify Packs in your area visit www.beascout.org and input your Zip Code.
All new Scouts will receive a rocket kit to build with their family, den, or pack and are invited to Blast Off at our FREE area Rocket Launches.
