Cub Scouts still accepting new members

boyscoutHOUSTON – Boys from first grade through age 10 can find entertaining and educational activities every week at the Scout Hut in Houston.
Cub Scout Master, Greg Simmons, said currently there are two packs of Scouts and enrollment is still open for 2014. Simmons has a history in Scouting and is ready to share it with the youth in Houston and the surrounding areas.
“I grew up in Scouting and became an Eagle Scout,” Simmons said. “My son said last year he wanted to get into scouting.”
Simmons said his immediate priority is to encourage parents to become involved in their children’s Scouting life.
“I want to plug parents in,” Simmons said. “These are activities that are fun for children but that also build character.”
Simmons added he wants to increase membership and build a self-sustaining program while also helping children build relationships with their peers.
“That’s something we want to do here is help kids build real relationships,” Simmons said.
Cub Scouts meet every Monday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Scout Hut in Houston behind the Fire Station. A monthly pack meeting is held the third Monday of each month.
