What are the top five questions new parents had about Cub Scouting when they first joined? Watch the video to find out.
Yes. Den leaders can attend and parents of scouts are encouraged to join the committee and participate in the Committee planning meetings. They are held once per month, generally at the Chair‘s home. If you are a parent of a scout and are interested in attending a Committee meeting, please contact the pack for more details, either by talking to us or emailing us.
You can contact either the Committee Chair, the Secretary or the Cubmaster with your ideas or suggestions.
Please contact us. There is a new registration platform for new members and we can walk you through it. Please note our recruitment day is Sports Day in September, where we can answer many of your questions. You can also join us at our first pack meeting, also in September. Please see the pack calendar for specific dates, times and locations.
If you cannot find a Den in your area, you may have to consider starting your own den. Start by asking at your child’s school if any other child is interested in joining Cub Scouts. If you have at least 3 or 4 children interested, then you have enough to start a Den. Begin your online adult training and contact the pack for ideas and support. We have registration forms and flyers you can use to promote scouting in your area.
Pack meetings are held once a month on a Friday evening at 19:30 at La Chataigneraie International School in Founex and we also have seasonal pack events (see calendar). Den meetings are also generally held once a month (sometimes twice, depending on school holidays for den members). Meetings are held in cub scouts homes or at various locations in Geneva, Vaud and France Voisine. Parents generally bring their children to/from events and are encouraged to stay on site to watch, participate or talk with other parents.
Yes. Any boy or girl aged 6 to 10 is welcome to join Pack 130. All of our meetings are in English so a command of the language will help your son feel more involved. That said, we have many bilingual scouts, leaders and parents in our Pack to help bridge any language barriers until a scout’s English improves. You do not have to be an American to join Cub Scouts or Scouts BSA (formely Boy Scouts).
Cub Scouts are boys or girls aged 6 to 10. Any boy or girl showing an interest in scouting and lives in the Geneva, Switzerland area (whether Geneva or Vaud Canton or neighboring France) is welcome to join our Pack. You do not have to be an American to join Cub Scouts.
