Cub Scouting is for Everyone!

What is Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouting is fun! No matter what grade you are in, kindergarten through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, or shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts.


Cub Scouts Belong to Packs and Dens

As a Cub Scout you will be part of your own pack.  The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys or girls. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and probably even go to the same school.


Cub Scouts Do Things and Go Places

Have you been to the local police station and talked to the officers on duty? Or spent time shooting air rifles and bows and arrows on a range with trained leaders? Or got up close to nature with friends your age?  Or learned the ins and outs of grocery shopping for nutrition?  These are some of the places you might go with our den or pack.


You might also build a pinewood derby car and race it on the track, build a sailboat from a kit and race it in the raingutter regatta, or build a rocket out of a soda bottle and shoot it high into the air!
