ONLINE APPLICATION

The Scouts BSA’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. The Scouts BSA vision is to prepare every  eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law. The Scouting program has specific objectives, commonly referred to as the “Aims of Scouting.” They are character development, leadership development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.

SCOUT OATH & LAW

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous,

Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent!

WE GO CAMPING!

FAMILY SCOUTING: The uniqueness of Cub Scouting is that you, as a family, join the program with your Son or Daughter. You will help them along the way. The family is the basis of the Cub Scout program. Cub Scouts exists to support your family and help enrich your family activities. The children have a different handbook at each grade level with suggested activities that are age appropriate for their developmental level. As Cubscouts “advance” through these books by working on activities with their family, they will earn badges and other recognition which may be worn on their uniform.

Your child’s success in Cubscouting depends on you!

WHAT IS CUB SCOUTS?

Top five questions new parents have about Cubscouts:  https://youtu.be/De1JbT6Vglg

The Pack

The pack is made up of several dens.  The make up and size of the pack varies based on local interest and resources. Each pack is identified by a number.  Ours is 357

Pack Committee – Every Family has a Job!

Made up of parents, leaders, and other caring adults. The pack committee works to support den leaders and the cubmaster with activities.  

Cubmaster – Primary Vol. Adult Leader

The leader of the pack meeting is the Cubmaster.  In addition to serving as the master of ceremonies the Cubmaster provides support to Den Leaders.

Position-Specific (Role-Based) Courses

These instructor-led courses are designed to help Scouters learn how to effectively carry out their Scouting roles. In most cases, completing the course will make a Scouter “trained” for the role(s) covered in the course. E-learning versions of some courses may be found below in the E-learning section.

Dens

A small group of Cub Scouts who are in the same grade.  The ideal size is 6 to 8 Cub Scouts.

 

Den Leaders

An adult, usually a parent, serves as a Den Leader. They carry out the activities related to adventures as they are presented in the Cub Scout’s handbook and the Den Leader Guide

Required Youth Protection Training

Youth protection training is required for all BSA registered Adult volunteers and retrained every two years. Parents are strongly encouraged to take Youth Protection training to become familiar with policies, procedures, and guidelines. The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on providing the most secure environment possible for its youth members
