What is Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouting is fun! No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast!
Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery) and so much more!
Cub Scouts Do Things and Go Places
Have you been to your local police station and talked to the policemen on duty? Or visited the fire station and sat in the driver's seat of the pumper truck? These are some examples of the places you will go in the Cub Scouts.
You will also build a Pinewood Derby car and race it on the track, build a sailboat or trimaran and race it in the raingutter regatta, or build a spaceship and race it to the stars in your Pack Space Derby.
Cub Scouts Earn Awards
Each time you complete an accomplishment or learn a new skill, you will be rewarded. Sometimes the reward is a bead or a patch. Sometimes it is a smile on your parents' faces to see you grow and learn.
Cub Scouts Belong to Packs and Dens
As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own Pack.
The Pack is divided into smaller groups called Dens. Each Den has about 6-8 boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your Den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school.
The Cub Scout Pack belongs to a church, a school, or some other group of people in your community or neighborhood. This group makes sure your Pack has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world.

How about an adventure?
Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they've been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they've never gone, seeing things they've never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible. Sound fun?
If you're child is age 11, or at least 10 and have completed the fifth grade, or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, to 17 years old, the time for a real adventure is now.
