What is Cub Scouts?

Through Cub Scouting, Kindergarten through 5th Graders enjoy adventure in a program that builds character and instills values. Activities expertly tailored to match their specific age group help youth build academic skills, physical fitness, self-confidence, respect, and good citizenship. The Cub Scout motto, “Do Your Best,” instills a code of excellence, preparing our young people to achieve throughout their life! But most importantly, Scouts just have “FUN”!

What's the Cost?

When compared to the cost of sports and many other activities, there is no doubt that Scouting delivers great value to its members! The registration fee to join Scouting is $33 annually. In addition, there are one-time uniform costs and nominal activity fees that may be charged by your local unit. Of course, these costs may be offset by unit fundraising and other available scholarship funds. Please contact your local unit leadership for details.

Time Commitment

The time commitment for Scouting is about 1 hour of activities a week. Those activities look different each week. Twice a month your Scout will meet in grade-based meetings, called den meetings. Then all of the Scouts, grades K – 5, will come together for a pack meeting. Once a month there will be a Pack activity. Scouting programs are volunteer-led, so each family should plan on volunteering as a part of their Scouting commitment.

Scouting truly is time well spent. Most parents can agree that kids grow up fast. The time they have to positively shape the lives of their children is short, but Scouting has the unique opportunity to make the most of right now. With hectic schedules filled with things like school, work and sports, Scouting allows for quality time between parents and their kids.

I absolutely love watching my son and his friends enjoying themselves so intensely. I am even more thrilled about the skills and character that they are developing by being in Scouts. They may be having a blast creating new games with just a rope, Frisbee and soccer balls, but I see teamwork and creativity. I’m thankful that we have the Boy Scouts of America helping guide our boys through the essentials of life, creating a solid foundation at an impressionable time.
