Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh, My!

Lions, Tiger and Bears

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh, My! Don’t worry, it’s nothing to be afraid of. Wild animals are not invading the library. It just means that you may begin seeing more Cub Scouts at the Midwest Genealogy Center. Did you know that MGC offers programs for Cub Scouts? We have two new programs! For Weeblos, we now have the Project Family elective adventure and for the Tigers, we offer the Family Stories elective adventure. For the Weeblos adventure, the Cub Scouts will complete those requirements related to genealogy. They will learn how to interview a family member, create a family tree, and find out about family traditions and culture. The Tigers will make a family crest, create a family tree, share family memories, and take a tour of the library. Discover each Scout’s unique family heritage and story as they complete requirements towards their loop or pin. Each program is one hour long.

Additionally, MGC offers a program for Girl Scouts. In a one-hour staff-taught workshop, Brownies can complete all the requirements for the My Family Story badge. Older scouts can complete the BSA Genealogy Merit Badge at the Library. Certified Merit Badge Counselors will lead the four-hour session. For more information on scheduling your den or troop visit, call the Midwest Genealogy Center at 816-252-7228. Your Scouting adventure begins at the Library!
