Being a Cub Scout

In Cub Scouting you'll have lots of fun, adventure, and activities with your den and pack. But there's more to it than that. Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.

What Is Cub Scouting?
What do Cub Scouts do? How old are they? What awards can they earn? Look here for quick answers.

Cub Scout Values
As a Cub Scout, you do your best and you help others. You learn the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. You also learn what they mean.

 

Things Cub Scouts Do

Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model cars, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means "doing."

Blue and Gold Banquets
In February, when Scouting celebrates its "birthday," packs across the country hold blue and gold banquets. In nearly all packs, the banquet is a very special event.

Cub Scout Camping
Learn to live in the outdoors. Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world.

Cub Scout Derbies
Racing in a Cub Scout derby is great fun. You'll get to design your racing vehicle, work with a parent to build it, and see it perform on race day.

Outings and Field Trips
"Outing" is a big part of Scouting. Cub Scouts get out and about with many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation.

Service Projects 
Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise "to help other people."
