Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is designed to offer fun and challenging activities to promote character, development , citizenship and physical fitness for boys who are in the first though fifth grade, or ages 7-10. Cub Scouts join a Pack and are assigned to a den, of usually 6-10 boys of the same age. Apart from the fun and excitement of Scouting, the aim of Cub Scouting is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit. Cub Scouting is fun, with a purpose.
Ten Purposes of Cub Scouting are:
- Character Development
- Spiritual Growth
- Good Citzenship
- Sportsmanship and Fitness
- Family Understanding
- Respectful Relationships
- Personal Achievement
- Friendly Service
- Fun and Adventure
- Preparation for Boy Scouts
Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best
The Cub Scout Helps the Pack Go:
Your pack needs you to be a good member. A good member goes to all meetings, follows the leaders, and pitches in to make the pack better. Being a good member of the pack means doing your share, and sometimes a little more, to help the pack.
The Pack Helps the Cub Scout Grow:
With the leaders and Cub Scouts all working together, the pack helps you grow into a better person. You will learn new things and new skills. You'll learn the right way to do the right things. And along the way, you will help others.
The Cub Scout Gives Goodwill:
Doing good things for others doesn't just make them happy. It also gives them the desire (or the "will") to do good things for others in turn. In this way, the good things you do for others make ripples that pass the goodwill from person to person. The spirit of helpfulness and good cheer spreads from you to others in your neighborhood.
Leaders at Pack 7 are trained by the Annawon Council at both the Pack and Den levels so you can be sure that your sons safety and best interests are of the utmost concern to Pack 7.
