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!

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!
