What is Cub Scouts?

Since 1910

For more than 100 years, Scouting has helped mold future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.

Building the Leaders of Tomorrow One Day at a Time


Cub Scouting is a year-round family-oriented program of the Boy Scouts of America.  


New Experiences

At Pack 841, we plan for our boys to have fun and to try new things. In the process, they gain confidence and learn how to make good decisionsCub Scouts get to have fun and participate in a wide array of activities (all with a purpose, of course), whether it's games, skits, stunts, songs, projects, camping trips, cultural exchanges, conservation projects, community service projects and more.  


Belonging

Boys belong to a den which is a small group of 6-8 boys all around the same age and in the same grade. Some may even go to school together.  It is in the den setting that Cub Scouts develop new skills and interests and get to practice what they are learning.

Recognition

Recognition for achievement is important to boys. The advancement plan in Cub Scouting gives boys an ongoing sense of personal accomplishment. Activities that boys participate in outside of Scouts such as team sports, STEM programs, after school programs, and other hobbies can all support and contribute to a Scout's advancement in the program.


Mentoring

Scouting provides youth with good role models who can impact their lives in a powerful way.  Parents, adult family members, and caregivers act as adult partners for the scouts and provide necessary leadership and support for the Pack.  All of our leaders are screened and trained for their specific role in the pack.


Building Character and Lifelong Values

Cub Scouting helps boys become lifelong learners and to make character connections with their activities.  Cub Scouting affirms the value of hard work, honesty, fairness, courage, honor, and respect for others.
