Youngstown Cub Scout Pack 829 invites boys in first- through fifth-grade and their families to learn more about the group and its activities at a free information and recruitment gathering at Porter-on-the-Lake on Dietz Road in the Town of Porter. The event runs from 6-8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.

Hot dogs, drinks and light snacks will be provided for anyone attending. Games, a campfire and s'mores will add to the festivities, weather-permitting.

According to scouting.org, Cub Scouts, which is part of the Boy Scouts of America organization, promotes:

  • A fun and safe environment to learn and grow while developing interests and skills.
  • Character building and development centered on good morals and values.
  • The chance to learn life skills that help Scouts be successful adults and contributing members of society.
  • Exciting outdoor experiences boys love, including hiking, camping and mountain biking.

The pack is already planning a weekend campout in October and other fun, learning activities throughout the winter. Regular meetings are held bimonthly at 6:30 p.m. Mondays, starting Oct. 3, at the First Presbyterian Church in Youngstown. Parent involvement is always welcome.
