Big Smiles Build Bigger Futures
When you’re a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and
summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while
teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of
shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a
race car, Cub Scouts is one after another. With a program
expertly tailored to match each age in a young kid's life, Cub Scouts
learn that even when fun isn't easy, it’s always an adventure. In
Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their
best is the most fun of all.
Cub Scouts are broken into a small group called a pack. The pack you
join is up to you. You can look for a pack chartered by an organization
you support, or simply choose the one closest to your neighborhood. With
tens of thousands of Cub Scout Packs across the country, it shouldn’t
be hard to find one that fits you and your family.
Each pack has dedicated volunteer leaders who are tasked with
teaching Cub Scouts both fun and valuable lessons that will help them
progress in the program and in life. But what makes Cub Scouts truly
unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in
each child’s development. From volunteering with the pack to leading
activities at home, parents can take full advantage of the extra time
they’ll have participating in their Cub Scout's life.
While it is
designed for kids in Kindergarten through fifth grades, this program really
involves the whole family as parents pitch in to plan and deliver
activities. Cub Scouting is affirmative and fun focused. There are
currently over 1.3 million Cub Scouts and 395,000 adult volunteers in the
NOTE: Some units have begun taking on the Family Scouting to girls in the cub scout program. Pack 656 is one of them.
