Why Join Cub Scouts?


Your time is valuable. Today's families, more than ever, struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready made opportunities for you and your son to do things together.  

Your son needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Through this sense of belonging he builds his self esteem and learns to get along with others. As a parent, you
want to be assured that the groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.


In a society where your son is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouting teaches him to “do his best" and to be helpful to others.


Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son.  Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your son.  

But we know that boys do not join Cub Scouts to build their character. Boys join because it is fun.  Scouting is fun with a purpose!

Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.

Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.

Come join the fun of CubScouting as a family... it's fun! 

You'll make new friends, too, as you work with the parents of your son's new friends. No job is too difficult when you're having fun as part of a team of Cub Scout parents, reinforcing each others' efforts to help your boys grow up to be good citizens.
