Why Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts is a well-rounded program that focuses on positively
affecting every area of your boy or girl’s life – home, school and community.
What does Cub Scouting teach?
- Girls and boys learn to appreciate and respect others
- Children learn the value of serving others
- Cub Scouting provides children with a sense of self-worth through their supportive Scouting family who care about them and their successes and turns “failures” into learning opportunities.
- We promote activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem
- The Cub Scout program is open to your whole family and will strengthen the bond between children and their Cub Scouting partner.
How Cub Scouting works
- Confidence, through recognition by adults
- Belonging, by building friendships with other children
- The value of family, by fostering quality family time for children and their Cub Scouting partner
- Social skills, through interacting with other youth, scout leaders, and people in their community
- Good decision making, by instilling values of helping others
- About their community, by participating in field trips and other activities
Cub Scouting does not require 100% attendance – it works on your family’s schedule.
Family Scouting – Boys & Girls Invited to Join
- Den Meetings: Each Cub Scout belongs to a grade-specific Den of 6-8 children that meets for about an hour twice per month.
- Pack Meetings: all Dens from a school meet monthly
- Special Outings: Occasionally Scouts participate in a field trip, outdoor activity, or attending a larger Cub Scout event.
Both boys and girls can participate in Cub Scouting! Families will have the opportunity to have all members of their family involved and will be able to earn badges and have all the great adventures of Cub Scouting.
What Is Expected of Families?
How Do I Get My Child Involved?
- Cub Scouting is a program that many families do together. Boys & girls who are Cub Scouts should attend meetings and events with a family member or other adult who is important in their life.
- As a family, you will grow closer through the activities you do at Cub Scouts. Siblings often attend Cub Scout meetings and activities.
- Many Cub Scout families are active in non-Scouting activities as well. Cub Scouting can fit into a busy schedule since attendance is not required at every outing or meeting.
- There are volunteer opportunities for family members if they wish. Cub Scout Leader Training sessions and online training are available for adults who volunteer as leaders.
The easiest way is to attend a “School Night for Scouting” sign-up meeting scheduled in September. All sign-up nights can be found at:
