Here's an idea I heard about and wondered what others think about this. In
Boy Scouts you have older boys (maybe not quite Eagle) but in order to keep
them involved you can make them Junior Assistant Scout Masters, and give them
I've been looking at ways to keep the 5th graders or 2nd year Webelos
involved in Cub Scouts so that they can graduate into Boy Scouts. The idea
that was proposed to me was to assign (depending on the number of 2nd year
boys) one boy per Pack meeting the duties of Junior Assistant Cub Master, who
would assist the Cubmaster with the Pack meeting. This would mean assisting
with ceremonies, cheers, songs, anything that the Cubmaster might be doing.
As part of this you would have a temporary Assistant Cubmaster patch which
could be placed on the scouts arm, and possibly give him some token
recognizing his service as JACM.
Well....any thoughts on this idea?
