Cub Scouting
The Boy Scouts of America was founding way back in 1910 with Cub Scouting coming 20 years later in 1930. The program helps boys who are in the first through fifth grades year round by providing them with age-appropriate activities designed to develop their personal character. Volunteers, mostly parents, work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are: Character Development, Spiritual Growth, Good Citizenship, Sportsmanship, Family Understanding, Respectful Relationships, Personal Achievement, Friendly Service, Fun and Adventure, and Preparation for Boy Scouts.

Cub Scouts
Boys who participate in Cub Scouting join a Pack and are assigned a den which consist of a group of scouts in the same school grade. The den is an age appropriate level - Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) - these dens typically meet once or twice a month.

Once every month all of the dens, along with their respective family members get together for a Pack meeting under the direction of the Cubmaster and Pack committee. This committee is comprised of parents of the scouts and members of the chartered organization.

Cub Scouting and Your Family
The Cub Scout program helps to meet your boy’s growth needs. As a boy develops, he has specific development needs such as:
  1. To learn new physical skills. He can do this through games, sports, and crafts. As he develops his coordination, he gains a sense of worthiness and acceptance by his peers.
  2. To learn to along with boys of his same age. He needs to form friendships with other boys. He needs to learn how to balance giving and receiving affection if he is to relate well with his peers. He needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Being a part of a Cub Scout den helps fulfill these needs.
  3. To develop his mental process. He can develop his mental process by reading, writing, and calculating. He needs opportunities to use language to express ideas and to influence others. He must move from a preoccupation with self to understanding how and what others think of him. Opportunities for observation and experimentation will help him learn self-reliance. Den activities and meetings, along with the advancement program, help him develop mentally.
  4. To develop a value system. He is becoming less dependent on adults. His same age friends become important to him. In his den, and in the pack, he exercises his independence while learning to get along with others.
  5. To develop personal independence. He is becoming less dependent on adults. His same age friends become important to him. In his den, and in the pack, he exercises his independence while learning to get along with others.
Your son also needs to belong to a “group” of boys his own age. This group is a key component of the Cub Scout program. A den is like a neighborhood group of boys in which he will achieve status and recognition.

As you learn more about how Cub Scouting works and what goes on in a den and a pack, you will see that the program helps your boy in these five important developmental needs. The uniqueness of Cub Scouting is that you, as his family, join the program with your boy. You will help him all along the way.
