About Cub Scouts

Does your son enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, building, and playing games with other like minded boys? Would you like your son to learn the value of being honest, responsible, and helpful in a positive atmosphere that rewards individual hard work and builds teamwork skills? If you answered yes to either of these, Cub Scouting is for you and your son!

Cub Scouting is a year round family program for boys in kindergarten to fifth grade that provides “Fun with a Purpose”. Through the use of songs, skits, games, outings, indoor and outdoor activities, we instill in the boys the 12 core values designed to develop character  and help the boy grow into a well rounded young man. All of this happens while providing the boys with a sense of belonging, pride in their accomplishments and creating a greater strength between them and their adult partner (parent/guardian).
This all sounds great, but right now you're asking where the fun part comes in. The boys will spend their den meetings working with each other and their adult partners to build things, solve problems, learn new tasks, create and play games, sing songs, and explore the world around them all under the supervision of an adult scout leader. We believe there can be no scouting without outing. We have trips to local areas of interest. Would your son like to see the inside of a radio station? How about a zoo or aquarium? Perhaps a museum or art exhibit would catch his interest. We strive to get the boys out and about as much as possible. If you ask the boys, the trips are the best part of the scouting experience. To be honest, the parents have a good time too! Once a month, the boys will attend a pack meeting. This is the big payoff for all their hard work throughout the month. They will stand in front of the pack with the rest of their den and be presented with the awards that they have earned for the past month. The Cub Scout Motto, “Do Your Best” ensures that every boy, regardless of ability level, is recognized for his efforts. When you see the pride in your sons eyes and the smile on his face when he receives those awards, you'll truly understand what cub scouting is all about.
