Cub Scouting

Have fun with other kids

Cub Scouts have fun and go places with their family, friends, and neighbors. Cub Scouts earn awards with requirements that develop self-responsibility, confidence, and willingness to help others.

What will I do in Cub Scouts?

Cub Scouts go fishing, build rockets, eat s'mores, and make friends. Plus, there's the pinnacle of most Cub Scout years - the Pinewood Derby!

Cub Scouts earn recognition while doing fun activities with their family, using a handbook as their guide.

Get to know your son's friends and their families as part of a den made up of similar age boys.

How often do we meet?

Cub Scout dens (grade specific) meet either weekly or every other week.

Cub Scout Packs (all dens together) meet once a month to showcase activities and receive awards, sometimes joined by special guests like magicians, zookeepers, or fireman.

Cub Scouts get awesome opportunities at camp and field trips:

  • Trips to TV/weather stations
  • Tours of police/fire stations
  • Visits to animal shelters
  • Field trips to art galleries, museums and more!
  • Camping and hiking trips
  • Pinewood derbies and rocket launches

Who can join?

Boys ages 5-10 or in elementary school grade K-5 can join Cub Scouts.

What's the cost?

The membership fee to join Cub Scouts is $33 per year and is pro-rated.

Other costs for uniforms, activities, camp, etc. are not included in the membership fee. Fundraising programs are available to help keep costs low.

How does Cub Scouts include parents and guardians?

Cub Scouting engages the family. Working together, you will complete and sign off on the requirements found in his handbook - from doing a magic trick to creating a fire-escape plan for the family home.

Scouting is a volunteer-led program. Each Scout pack is sponsored by a local community organization. Parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved as a pack leader or volunteer. Parents and the community organization select pack leaders.

Scout leaders have the opportunity to work with boys and their families, improving the community throught fun-filled activities that teach values of the Scout Oath and Law. By serving as a leader you can help make a positive difference in the kind of adults Scouts grow into.

Many tools, resources, and trainings are available to assist volunteers in becoming effective leaders and enjoy their experience.
