Bear scouts comprise 3rd graders or boys between the ages of 8-9 years.
This is the year your son will grow in amazing ways. In previous years a lot of the scouting activities your son has participated in has been done with you as his partner or completed in den meetings. This year your son will gradually begin doing more things on his own and taking responsibility for his growth in scouting as he prepares for Webelos.
While I encourage your active participation in your son's scouting endeavors, I will be expecting his work to show through as some of the activities I want the boys to do as bears will depend greatly on how well all of the boys handle themselves and grow throughout the year. I also expect him to uphold the Scout Law to ensure our meetings are fun for everyone.
There will be the expectation of the boys doing some light studying in learning some things for our den meetings and the facebook page is a way for parents to aid in the learning process. As this is the most effective means of insuring information is sent out as emails can be misdirected, please be sure to check the page often.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me or ask me after one of our meetings.
