Your child can learn skills about teamwork in sports and music. However, Scouting’s strength is that it provides a well-rounded program, and your child works at their own pace. As a parent, you will enjoy joining your child in fun and constructive activities. When you serve as a leader, you are helping youth achieve their full potential.
Fun With A Purpose
As a parent, you want your child to grow up to be self-reliant, dependable, and caring. Scouting has these same goals in mind for him or her. Since 1910, we have been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, good citizenship, and physical fitness. In youth, Scouting teaches family values… However, we know that kids do not join Scouting to build their character. They join because of the fun and exciting events and activites!
Trying New Things! As life is varied, so are Cub Scouts. Scouting provides opportunities for kids to experience activities they might never receive the chance to explore.
Learning New Skills! As Cub Scouts play and explore, they are learning valuable life skills that will be with them throughout life.
Skills like: Public Speaking, Citizenship, Leadership, Personal Fitness, Survival, and More!
Cub Scouting is a family program! Parent involvement is a must for kindergarten and first grade. It is also highly recommended as needed for Cub Scouts in second through fifth grade. Families (siblings, grandparents, etc.) can also attend meetings and events.
Cub Scouting is safe! The Boy Scouts of America places the most significant importance on providing its youth membership with the most secure environment possible. To maintain this standard, the BSA has developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies. There are many online resources to assist in educating leaders and parents about the best ways to keep kids safe. Additionally, all Scouting leaders are required to complete Youth Protection Training every two years. The training is available to everyone and can be completed online at My.Scouting.org
