Cub Scouts is an active program for children (both boys and girls) in kindergarten through fifth grade (and their families) that encourages learning, friendship, and most of all, getting out and having fun! Your child will join with others in the same grade in a “den” and have a Handbook of adventures for their grade level. All of the Cub Scouts and families in the dens make up the “pack”. With an emphasis on outdoor events, small gatherings, and activities with family, Cub Scouts is a great way to let your kids safely socialize, learn, and have fun.

Flexible Experiences that Fit Your Family
From big overnight pack trips to small local den adventures, camping in a tent to building a pinewood derby car, trying new things and playing sports to learning STEM, there’s truly something for everyone to do and enjoy in Cub Scouts. Bring the whole family to participate in activities with you!
Cub Scouting Works!
Cub Scouts perform better in school, learn the value of volunteering in their community and build confidence to take on positions of leadership. Cub Scout families can serve the community through service projects done by the family, the den and/or the pack.
Build Character and Leadership Skills
Kids love Cub Scouts because it’s fun. But Scouting teaches values-based leadership and character strengths, too. It builds new confidence and social skills. It teaches the value of service and citizenship. In Cub Scouts, youth learn what it means to be a Scout today - and a leader for tomorrow, through our Scout Law.
A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
WEBELOS to Scouts BSA Transition
“Webelos” stands for “We’ll Be Loyal Scouts.” As Webelos near the end of the Cub Scout trail, it’s time for them to embrace that pledge and prepare for the next leg of the journey: Scouts BSA.
Webelos and their families should be familiar and comfortable with the youth and adult leaders of the Scouts BSA troop, their role in the troop and troop activities, and feel excited about beginning this new adventure. The passage from a pack to a troop should be smooth, with no time lost in between.
The crossover ceremony should clearly signify the transition to a new level of Scouting. It could include the presentation of the Arrow of Light badge, a Scouts BSA Handbook, and a troop neckerchief. By planning and coordinating their efforts, the pack and troop can help make the Webelos-to-Scout transition seamless and give all Webelos Scouts a chance to experience the fun and excitement of joining a Scouts BSA troop.
