What is Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouting is a neighborhood centered program for boys in grades one through five. Cub Scouting was first organized in 1930, when the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) realized that not every boy in the United States was experiencing the fun of Scouting. For years, boys too young to join the Scouting movement – younger brothers, neighbors, and friends had been tagging along on camp outs, service projects, and other fun filled activities with older Scouts but not reaping the full benefits of being a Boy Scout.
To accommodate this younger generation of motivated boys, the BSA created Cub Scouting. An exciting and adventurous program coupled with skills and values development for younger boys, Cub Scouting became an instant hit.
Today, Cub Scouting provides more than two million boys from all backgrounds with healthy doses of constructive fun and an underlying emphasis on traditional values and service. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three traditional membership divisions.(The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)
Cub Scout enrollment is open year round, so you can join at anytime. However, spring and the start of school are usually the most popular times to sign up.
