Policy of Acceptance

Cub Scout Pack 208 recognizes the benefits of Scouting for all boys and their families and provides membership to all boys and welcomes interested adults in the Newton community without regard to color, race, religion, ethnic background, economic status or sexual orientation.  We openly reject the national policy put forth by Boy Scouts of America barring avowed gay or lesbian adults from serving as leaders.  We believe that Scouting builds character and teaches and enforces the 12 core values of Scouting (citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect and responsibility).  Cub Scout Pack 208 also believes and promotes the importance of tolerance and acceptance.

Adopted February 2013 and amended based on BSA’s policy change in May 2013.
