Cub Scouts Coming to Danville Georgia | Community Spirit
The Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Danville Georgia is attempting to charter a Cub Scout troop in the Danville area of Twiggs County. Mt. Zion and some members have formed a committee that has been meeting with the Boy Scout Council of Macon Georgia in an effort to organize the troop. The plan is to first form a cub scout program that will develop into a Boy Scout program. The Cub Scout program is open to boys in grades 1st through 5th. The next planned meeting is Monday November 12th at 6pm at the social hall of Mt. Zion Baptist Church located at the intersection of Hwy 358 and I-16 in Danville Georgia. The committee is in search of committee members, den leaders, and a cub master. The leaders are not only limited to males, females are encouraged to become den mothers and committee members as well. If you have any questions or would like to become a volunteer please contact Jamie McDaniel at 478-955-9164.
Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.
As a worldwide brotherhood, Scouting is unique. It is based on the principles of loving and serving God, of human dignity and the rights of individuals, and of recognizing the obligation of members to develop and use their potential. It is a movement dedicated to bringing out the best in people. Cub Scouting doesn't emphasize winning as an end result, but rather the far more demanding task of doing one's best. Scouting can help nurture courage and kindness and allow boys to play, to laugh, to develop their imaginations, and to express their feelings, then we will have helped them grow. We want boys to become useful and stable individuals who are aware of their own potential. Helping a boy to learn the value of his own worth is the greatest gift we can give him.
The 12 core values are: citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility.
