Fun With A Purpose
As a parent, you want your child to grow up to be self-reliant, dependable and a caring individual. 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 it is fun!
Trying New Things! As life is varied, so is Cub Scouts. Scouting provides opportunities for kids to experience activities they might not ever receive the opportunity to explore.
Learning New Skills! As Cub Scouts play and explore, they are actually 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 (sibilings, grandparents, etc) are also welcome to attend meetings and events.
Cub Scouting is safe! The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on providing the most secure environment possible for its youth member. To maintain this standard, the BSA has developed numerous procedural and leadership selection polices. 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
