What does Cub Scouts offer my son?
Cub Scouting offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect.
How does participation in Cub Scouts effect participation in other activities?
The Cub Scout program is designed to compliment many other extracurricular activities. Typical time commitment is three Den meetings and one Pack meeting per month. Boys who participate in organized sports like soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, etc, or academic-based extracurricular activities like music, art, science etc., can be recognized for these activities though Cub Scout belt loops and pins which are worn on their uniform.

Other costs include uniforms and some activity fees including those for the Sleepovers and Camping. Youth members participate in one fund-raising activity (popcorn), which helps to cover Den supplies, equipment, Blue and Gold Banquet, and other activities.
How often are meetings?
Cub Scouts usually meet in their Dens two or three times each month, and a Pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. Beyond that, it depends on the Den and Pack: a Den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, the Pack may conduct a special event such as a sleepover, campout, or service activity as an additional event, rather than a substitute for its monthly Pack meeting.
How can I learn more?
The best way to learn about what a Cub Scout really does is to talk with a Cub Scout who is engaged in the program. Alternatively, you can learn more about the Cub Scout program by selecting "Contact Cubmaster" (above) and asking questions, or leave your phone number to receive a call from the Cubmaster.
