Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts is for boys between the ages of 7 and 10 or between the 1st and 5th grades in the American school system (2nd year through 6th year in the British system).  Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting programs are found worldwide and all have a common mission to promote character development of young boys.  Cub Scouting in Qatar is represented by Pack 3947 which is chartered to the Direct Service Council of the Boys Scouts of America.  The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations in the world.  The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibility of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.  Although Pack 3947 is chartered to the BSA, this does not mean that only Americans can join.  In fact, Pack 3947 enrolled over 75 boys last year from 14 different countries.  What it does mean is that our program will be following the rules and guidelines set forth by the BSA.  More information on the BSA can be found at http://www.scouting.org.

Girl Scouts:

Since 1925, USA Girl Scouts Overseas has been serving American girls living overseas and girls attending American or international schools.  USAGSO members enjoy the same excitement, fun and adventures in Girl Scouting as their stateside Girl Scout sisters. Girls relocating to another country will find that USAGSO provides them with the security of knowing that they’ll have an instant group of friends when they reach their new home.

Girl Scouts of the USA is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls—where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.

If you are interested in becoming a leader or if you have an interested daughter, (grades KG-12) please contact: Overseas Committee Chair, Margaret Grote at qatarusagso@gmail.com
