 Introduction To Cub Scouting  
 
Why Cub Scouting?
 
Cub Scouting’s strength is that it is a well-rounded program, positively affecting every area of a boy’s life. Cub Scouting encourages boys to achieve a deeper appreciation of others, including peers, parents, and other adults. Early in their Scouting experience, boys learn the value of serving others. Cub Scouting provides boys with a sense that they are important as individuals. They learn that their Scouting family cares about what happens to them.

Cub Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem.
 
Cub Scouting teaches your son….
 
  • Confidence through recognition by adults.
  • Belonging by building relationships with other boys.
  • Quality family time to strengthen the bond between parent and child.
  • Social skills through interacting with other people.
  • Moral and ethical choices by instilling essential values.
  • Citizenship to become responsible community members.
 
What do I do as a parent?
 
Cub Scouting is a program that parents and sons can do together. Parents who volunteer spend an average of two to four hours per week involved in Cub Scouting activities. This includes meeting with the boys and planning time. As a parent volunteer, there are a variety of positions to fill, such as den leaders, committee members, Cubmaster and committee chairman. Volunteering helps strengthen the bond between parent and child. Training is provided.

 

 
How Cub Scouting works….
 
Cub Scouting is for boys in the 1st through 5th grades. Your boy is a member of a den. A den consists of four to eight boys who meet according to their schedules. A den leader (usually a parent) is in charge of the activities, which include games, crafts, songs, ceremonies and lots of fun!
 

Your boy is a member of a pack. The pack consists of several dens and has activities once per month. The Cubmaster leads pack meetings with Scouts and their families in attendance. 

The pack meeting is made up of fun activities, as well as the presentation of awards that have been earned the last pack meeting.
