Parents can enroll their children in Boy Scouts when they reach kindergarten age. But what’s it like? Here’s the experience locals in the Bloomfield Pulse Facebook group discussed.
Jaclyn Puleo told of their experience with two children in Troop 23. The troop met on Wednesdays at 7 PM every week, where the children “always learned something new,” from building a tent to folding a flag to dinosaurs to nutrition facts. “And they also make friends and learn life lessons in the meantime.”
Liz Green noted that their son started in kindergarten and made it as far as Eagle Scout, the highest rank. In elementary school, it was all about having fun and then they got older, they went on to learn more leadership skills, which was useful when applying to college.
Valerie Caballero joined the conversation to share their contact information for parents who wanted to learn more. Valerie is at the Cubmaster for Pack 23 Bloomfield and can be reached at [email protected]
