Code of Conduct



Pack 24 has established the following Code of Conduct to provide Scouts, Parents, and Adult Leaders with a framework of expectations and disciplinary actions for all members of the Pack. This Code of Conduct will help ensure a common language and understanding for behavioral expectations, and consequences, allowing us to create an atmosphere conducive to fun, safety and the values of Scouting. 

Expectations:

Cub Scouts and Tiger Cubs 
  • Always be on time.
  • Call your Den Leader if you will be unable to attend a Den or Pack activity.
  • Wear a proper uniform with PRIDE - clean, neat, and complete - to all scouting events.
  • Listen and pay attention.
  • In response to the "signs up" signal, silently return the sign. 
  • Respect one another and your leader. 
  • Keep hands and feet to yourselves.
  • Don't take anything from anyone else without first asking permission.
  • Show respect for your surroundings, indoors and out, leaving them in as good or better condition than when they were found - "Leave No Trace".
  • Always follow Akela
  • Always DO YOUR BEST
Parents
  • Assist your son in learning the Pack 24 Code of Conduct. 
  • Work with Den and Pack Leaders as requested to ensure all boys in their Den follow the code.

  • Parents are responsible for the conduct of their scouts and non-scouts before and after the meeting. 
  • Parents are responsible for the conduct of their non-scout children during Pack activities. 
  • Parents may be asked to remove disruptive children from these events
  • Cub Scouting is a program based on parent (or guardian) and son participation. It is the policy of Pack 24 that a parent or an adult family member accompanies the Scout on all Pack activities, including Pack Meetings. Parents will also be asked to volunteer and participate in Den and Pack activities. 
  • The use of alcohol, tobacco products, or illegal drugs are NOT permitted while at Scout functions. 
Adult Leaders
  • Treat all Cub Scouts and Tiger Cubs as individuals, respecting their unique needs and capabilities. 
  • Act as a role model, demonstrating proper behaviors, language, etc. 
  • Wear your uniform at all scouting events. 
  • Assume responsibility for the safety, well being, and behavior of your charges at all times.
  • Follow BSA rules regarding discipline and other matters. 
  • Get Leader Specific training. 
Respect

 We strive to provide our Scouts with a fun, safe and enjoyable scouting experience. Our Adult Leaders donate many hours of their free time to achieve this goal. 
 All Adult Leaders should be given your respect. Directions given by Adult Leaders must be obeyed for the good of all Scouts. Failure to do so may result in parental notification and possibly dismissal from that Scouting function. We want all boys to be able to participate in activities, but we also want our Cub Scouts to learn that there are consequences for bad behavior. 
 Members of Pack 24 are expected to respect each other. Any behavior that injures, demeans, or offends other members of the Pack is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. 
 
Discipline 

Participation in any Scouting activity by a Scout, Parent, or Adult Leader, will be conducted in a manner that upholds the principles, 
standards, and ideals of the Boy Scouts of America as set forth in the Cub Scout Promise and Law.
 We recognize that in order for boys to grow into responsible men, they need to be held accountable for their actions. Therefore, any Scout who intentionally participates in an activity that has the potential to harm himself or Pack members, or behaves in a manner that reflects negatively upon Pack 24 or the Boy Scouts of America, will be disciplined. Behavior that is cause for disciplinary action includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Not following the Cubmaster's or Leader's directions. 
  • Significantly unsafe actions which may endanger himself or others. 
  • Exploring physical hazards (lakes, creeks, etc.) without permission and supervision. 
  • Leaving designated areas without the Cubmaster's or Leader's permission. 
  • Use of cursing or foul language. 
  • Excessively rowdy, unruly, loud, disrespectful, disobedient, or disruptive behavior. 
  • Physical or verbal hazing or harassment of others. 
  • Use of any controlled or illegal substance during any Scouting function. 
 
 Discipline at Den meetings is at the discretion of the Den Leader(s) in accordance with the following guidelines:
 
  • Failure to obey a rule will result in a warning followed by time out or removal from the activity. 
  • In cases of harmful or repetitive misbehavior, the parent may be asked to remove the Scout from the activity. 
  • At the meetings and outings, parental involvement is required. 
  • Den Leaders have the right to exclude a Scout from their Den for reasons of conduct. The situation will be reviewed by the Pack Committee and, in extreme cases, and after consultation with Bronx River District, a Scout may be dismissed from the Pack for reasons of misconduct. 
  • Den Meetings are for Scouts, their Parents, and Adult Leaders. Attendance by siblings are welcome by all Leaders and must act in accordance with Pack 24 Code of Conduct. 
 

All Scouts, Parents, and Adult Leaders are participants of Pack 24 and are representatives of their community, family, and local 
Scouting Council. Therefore, all Scouts, Parents, and Adult Leaders are asked to sign this Code of Conduct as a condition for participation. We want each Scout to be responsible for their own behavior, and only when necessary will the procedure be invoked to send a Scout home from their Den or Pack meeting or activity. 



This Code of Conduct (with modifications) is derived from Cub Pack 49 – Denison, Iowa Code of Conduct
