About Cub Scouts

Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys and girls can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.

From building a pinewood derby® car to learning to roast the perfect marshmallow with friends at a family campout, your child will LOVE Cub Scouts.
