What is Cub Scouting?

altCub Scouts is a program for boys who are at least 6 years old or in the first through fifth grades. Families are a big part of the Cub Scouts and are welcome to attend outings and activities. It's a great way to enjoy your family with the lively interaction of children the same age.

altA Cub Scout is part of a Pack, which is a group of families usually from the same school, church or area. The Pack is divided by age groups into Dens. The Pack meets once a month with Cub Scouts, leaders, parents and other family members to recognize everyone for their accomplishments that month.

Den meeting activities are planned around monthly themes and includes games, handicrafts, hikes and other outdoor fun, practicing skills and stunts for the next pack meeting, and taking part in simple ceremonies and songs. altSometimes work on advancement requirements is included, but most of that work is accomplished by the boys with their parents.  The Den Leaders will ask for help from parents to share a skill or host a den meeting.

Cub Scouting provides boys with positive peer groups and tools to shape their future. Boys learn values that help them make constructive decisions throughout their lives and give them the confidence they need to grow and develop.

Most importantly, it's a ton of fun!
