Cub Scout

What is Cub Scouts? What do Cub Scouts do? And what’s the mission of the program? The answer is actually pretty simple. Cub Scouts is a program within the Boy Scouts of America that serves youth from from 6 to 11 years old (with some locations piloting a program for 5-year-olds called the Lion Pilot Program). The Cub Scouts program aims to prepare youth to grow into self-reliant and dependable adults. Cub Scouts achieve this with a lineup of hands-on activities and adventures focused on:

  • Character Development
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Good Citizenship
  • Sportsmanship and Fitness
  • Family Understanding
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Personal Achievement
  • Friendly Service
  • Fun and Adventure
  • Preparation for Boy Scouts
