CUB SCOUT PROGRAM
|Cub Scouts can participate
in the largest annual International Scouting event, the annual
Jamboree-on-the-Air or JOTA. Each year SPARK Lodge opens
up for JOTA all day for the event. JOTA is always the
third full weekend of October each year. Be sure to check
our Schedule for the exact date that SPARK will be open.
Cub Scouts on there own can participate for as long as they want
in the activities. Cub Scout units should be mindful that
we will see a lot of other units during the day and we want to
be sure to get all of the Scouts who come out for JOTA on the
air talking to someone somewhere.
SPARK Lodge provides
mini-programs (less than two hours) for Cub Scouts.
Visiting an amateur radio station and learning about
radio communications can help earn a number of awards in Cub
Scouting. It is a Big Idea for Tiger Cubs and can help
fulfill requirements for the Communicator Award for Webelos. Cubs working on the Wolf award can learn about
the Morse Code and try their hand at sending messages. And
Cubs working on their Bear award can get help building
electrical and electronics projects.

Den or Pack, contact Rick Blank at
