This policy provides all parents and adult leaders a common understanding of the behavior norms and the procedures for dealing with problems if they occur.
Adult leaders in Pack 991 are urged to follow the Pack 991 Conduct Policy to deal with Cub Scout behavior related issues. It is important to communicate behavior problems to the parents and to the Pack Committee quickly so that corrective actions can be taken and so that no one is later taken by surprise.
The guidelines also deal with conflict between Adults involved in the pack. It is important to communicate problems to the Pack Committee Chair quickly so that corrective actions can be taken and so that no one is later taken by surprise.
Pack and Den Leaders must follow the BSA’s Age Appropriate Guidelines as set out in the Guide to Safe Scouting. Additionally, all leaders should consult the Guide for any and all activity planning. If questions arise, they should contact the Cubmaster or Committee Chair.
The Pack has a zero tolerance policy on hazing, initiations, ridicule, or inappropriate teasing. These things are not a part of the Cub Scouting tradition in Pack 991. All Cubs and their parents should immediately report any behavior of this type to the Cubmaster or the adult leader in charge of the activity.

Each parent is asked to coordinate or assist with the many fun events we do for the Scouts each year. See the HELP WANTED page for more information.
Check out the –open– positions on the Contacts page and let us know where you can help. Most are just once a year activities that need someone to coordinate the event and will only take a few hours of your time.
Our leaders leave the Pack as their sons move on in scouting, and we can use your help to fill the vacancies and help us provide a better experience for our boys. The positions makred with an * will need to be filled next year.
Go to the Activities page to learn more about the event. Please help.
The Pack strives to run a safe and effective organization. Our core group have gone through the BSA’s Youth Protection Program and pledged to keep our Cubs safe from physical, psychological and sexual abuse. We maintain two-deep leadership at all times.
All Pack leaders and at least one adult on Scout meetings and field trips are required to have Youth Protection Training. There is an online course with useful information and a certification that lasts 2 years. You can register and take the course on line at YouthProtection.
The BSA’s Youth Protection Program was developed to help safeguard both our youth and adult members. The Pack’s leaders responsible for youth safety understand and appreciate Cub Scouting’s position of zero tolerance for child abuse or victimization in any form. We are required by BSA guidelines to report any suspected abuse to the local council Scout executive.
Two-deep leadership means a minimum of two registered adult leaders, or one registered adult leader and the parent of a participating Cub must always be present during Pack and Den activities. There should never be any unsupervised one on one contact between an adult and a Cub in t he program. Even when your son has a private conversation with adult leader, it is always in the plain view of another adult.
