Cub Scouts - Boy Scouts of America


Youth Grades K-5


Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

There are four aims of Scouting; citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership.

The methods of Cub Scouting are; living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform.

Scouting works!

Over the past several years Scouting has partnered with colleges, universities, and other foundations to study the impact of the program.

The cost of Scouting is a true investment in your child’s education and future. Annual costs associated with Scouting are less than most other youth programs.

“It just seemed natural to sign my daughters up and let them be part of Boy Scouts,” mom Terri said. “It’s a family thing.”

The family thing was a main driver in their decision.

“We were going to end up being split. My husband and son would have gone one direction, and we would have gone the other.”

Being able to participate as a family was important, dad Andrew said.
