Cub Scouts is a year-round program that offers fun activities that promote character and leadership development. Our program is designed to be hands-on, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in our programs.
Scouting embraces the outdoors through camping, hiking and water sports. We also focus on helping our communities through service projects, STEM development and building confident kids through our wide range of activities. The Cub Scout program is designed to develop physical, mental and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
How Scouting Works
The Scouting program is delivered through local civic, faith-based, and educational institutions called chartered organizations, which operate Scouting units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.
Together, these organizations are run by almost one million adult volunteers dedicated to helping youth learn and grow.
The Cub Scouts program is open to boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth-grade. By welcoming both girls and boys into
the program, more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises and be
better prepared for future success.
