About cub scouting

Cub Scouts is fun for the whole family

In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

A bit more details on each of the grade programs:

  • Lions (Kindergarten) – Lions is a brand-new program, introduced in 2016, that is meant to be an introduction to scouting. The scouts will always have their adult partner (usually a parent) with them at all events.  Their activities are simple, quick, and fun.
  • Tiger (1st grade) – Tigers is a program that focuses around a scout and his adult partner (usually a parent) doing things together. The den will hold meetings and field trips based around Cub Scouting’s idea of “fun with a purpose”.
  • Wolves (2nd grade) & Bears (3rd grade) –Wolves and Bears are both focused on moving the scout from experiences with his adult partner to experiences with his peers. The scouts will work on achievements and skills with his den.  You know your son or daughter best and will always be the one to “sign off” his work when you feel that it is completed to the standard of the Cub Scout motto: “Do Your Best”.
  • Webelos (4th grade) & Arrow of Light (5th grade through March) – Webelos moves the scouts from being responsible to their parent to being responsible to the Den Leader(s).  The activities here are more challenging and often can’t be completed in a one hour meeting.  The scouts will be challenged here to move forward both with their den and on their own.  We “bridge” the scouts over to Scouts BSA, the new name for Boy Scouts, in March of their 5th grade year so that they have an opportunity to get settled into Scouts BSA before all the awesome summer activities begin.

What is the BSA?

Boy Scouts of America was started in 1910. Since the inception of scouting, the purposes of scouting has been to:

  • Positively influence a child's character development and spiritual growth.
  • Help a child develop habits and attitudes of good citizenship.
  • Encourage good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in body, mind, and spirit.
  • Improve understanding within the family.
  • Strengthen a child's ability to get along with others and to respect other people.
  • Foster a sense of personal achievement by developing new interests and skills.
  • Show a child how to be helpful and to do their best.
  • Provide fun and exciting things to learn and do.

The Cub Scout follows the same path by memorizing and obeying the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
