Cub Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys who are in 1st-5th grade (or 7-10 years of age). This is the first and the biggest of the Scouting programs. The Cub Scout program is a fun and educational experience concerned with values and give the boys a sense of personal achievement. It provides positive place where boys can enjoy safe, whole activities and focus on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills and developing a spirit of community service.
Every Cub Scout is a member of a Cub Scout pack. A pack is a large group of boys. The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each dens has six to eight boys about the same age that live in the same area. The Cub Scouts meet in their dens each week, and a pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. The Cub Scout pack belongs to a church, a school or some other group in your community. This group makes sure your pack has trained adult leaders, a place to meet and exciting things to do.
There is a lot to do as a Cub Scout. Cub Scouts do things like games, derby races, contests, sports and community projects. They get to go on field trips, camping and other outdoor adventures. They do many different things for fun and learning.
While having fun, Cub Scouts will earn badges and awards. They will work on projects with their family and everyone will feel good about what they’ve accomplished. As a Cub Scout earns a badge, the Cub Scout and an adult member of your family take part in a ceremony. This is a way to say “thank you” to the family for helping the Cub Scout earn their award.
The most popular awards for Cub Scouts are the advancement awards. Boys do requirements to advance and earn their badges of rank: Tiger Cub, Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, Webelos and the Arrow of Light Award. The Arrow of Light is the highest award in Cub Scouting. Webelos Scouts also earn activity badges.
There is a reason for everything boys do in Cub Scouting. Apart from the fun and excitement, the aim of Cub Scouting is to helps boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character. Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose.
