Why Join Cub Scouts?

Your time is valuable. Today's families, more than ever, struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your children to do things together. Your child needs to belong to a group of children their own age. Through this sense of belonging they build their self-esteem and learn to get along with others. As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups your child joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness.

Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910. In a society where your child is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouting teaches them to "Do Your Best" and to be helpful to others. Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your child. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your child.
But we know kids don't join Scouting to just get their character built. Kids join because it is FUN, and you can't have SCOUTING without OUTING!
