Cub Scout Information Nights
Soon boys in Grade Schools will bring home information regarding meeting dates for joining Cub Scouts. Information distribution and meeting dates will vary by school. Scouting is a proven education and leadership tool with each level designed for a boy's specific age. Scouting combines education with adventure and fun. When the Cub Scout information arrives home, use it as the key to join the rewarding, educational and fun adventure of Scouting.
Also, Girls age 14 to 21 can also join Scouting through the Venture Program. Contact Prairielands Council for information on a Venture Troop in your area. For additional information on joining Scouting contact Prairielands Council's Champaign office at 217-356-7291 and visit www.prairielandsbsa.org.
