Come to a den or pack meeting and see how much fun Scouting can be!  If you have a financial concern, keep in mind that the BSA believes no child should be left out of Scouting for the inability to pay. Between fund-raisers and other pack and den activities, all children wanting to be scouts will be included.  If purchasing a uniform is an issue we have several options for a child to get his uniform. So no excuses, see you at the next meeting!

 

The Purposes of Cub Scouting

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA's three membership divisions. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)

The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  • Character Development
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Good Citizenship
  • Sportsmanship and Fitness
  • Family Understanding
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Personal Achievement
  • Friendly Service
  • Fun and Adventure
  • Preparation for Boy Scouts
