Why should my son join cub scouts?

Cub Scouting is a program for Kindergarten-5th grade boys.   If your son is in the kindergarten through fifth grade, he and his family are invited to join in the fun and learning of Cub Scouts (older boys should inquire about boys scouts rather than cub scouts).   Cub Scouts participate in events like rocket launches, Pinewood derby, camp outs, community service activities, and much more.  Apart from fun and excitement, the aim of Cub Scouting is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit. This is why we say that Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose!


If you want your son to have some fun, excitement, outdoor opportunities, and a chance to participate in a program in which he doesn't always have to win — instead, he learns about “Do your best” and how to be helpful to others -- then we have just the program for you!
