Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What’s the difference between “童子軍” and “童軍”?
Boy Scout 在2008年之前稱為“童子軍”,但自2008年起,台灣及香港的童軍總會聯合將中文名稱正式改為童軍。中國並非世界童軍組織的會員國,目前在中國境內仍然有許多機構以舊名稱「童子軍」為名作為商業牟利的工具。真正的童軍是非營利機構。 “Boy Scout” was translated as “童子軍” before 2008. The new Chinese translation is “童軍”. Some people still use the old term 童子軍 in China. Since China is not a WOSM member, There is no NSO (National Scout Association, 童軍總會) in China and they have no contact with other NSOs and the World Organization. All scouting organizations in China are local business operating for profit.

我們例行的團集會(Pack Meeting)及小隊會議(Den Meeting)在基督之家第五家舉行。但是戶外活動如野餐、露營、射箭等則依活動地點而定。 Our regular Pack Meeting and Den Meeting take place at the Home of Christ Church in Cupertino. Other outings such as picnic, camping, or archery take place at various locations.
Q:How often do Cub Scouts meet? When do you meet?
我們例行的團集會(Pack Meeting) 通常是每個月兩次,在週六下午2:00pm舉行。團集會之後會有小隊會議(Den Meeting),孩子們按年齡分到不同的教室上課及活動。另外,團及小隊有時會安排外出活動來取代室內的集會。 Pack 485’s pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families roughly twice a month on Saturdays at 2pm followed by the den meetings . Beyond that, a den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum, in place of one of the den meetings. Likewise, a pack may conduct a special event such as picnic, or overnight outing.
Q:How much time do I have to volunteer per month?
童軍活動並不是Day Care或者課後班,我們也沒有雇用保母來照顧孩子,所有活動及課程都靠家長們來幫忙完成。從擔任團長 (Cubmaster) 、小隊長(Den Leaders),活動執行 (Adult in Charge, AIC),或者團務委員 (Committee Members) 等,有的只要每個月兩三個小時,有的每星期兩三個小時,每個家庭可以按自己的能力來服務。 Cub Scout is not a day care service or after school program. We don’t hire babysitters to take care of your child.  All activities and program were conducted by parents. Volunteer positions include Cubmaster, den leaders, AIC (adult in charge), committee members, etc. Some of them require a few hours a week, some might take just a mere a few hours a month. You can choose the one that fits you.
