Prepared for life
Cub Scouting is a year-round program that introduces children and their parents to the world of Scouting. Boys or girls join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun! Cub Scouts’ parents, guardians, and families are vital to the success of each local Cub Scout group – or Pack – as there are no paid leaders; everyone volunteers in some way. Packs may be boy-only, girl-only, or a combination.
For kids in Kindergarten through Grade 5 and their families.
Cub Scouts participate in programs that build character, encourage mental and physical fitness, and teach the importance of cooperation, citizenship, and responsibility. Adult volunteer leaders within each local Cub Scouts Pack plan the yearly calendar – and between each monthly Pack activity, Cub Scouts and their families participate in activities outlined in grade level handbooks that help the Scout earn a different “rank” each year.
- Pack meetings
- Monthly field trips
- Camping (accompanied by a parent)
- The Pinewood Derby
- Service projects
Cub Scouts learn new things, discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop friendships. Along with having fun, Scouts are reminded to live according to the Scout Oath and Law: Do Their Best and Help Others.
