What did most people do when COVID hit? They dug out their bikes, took to their yards for fun, went for hikes. The sections of stores that had anything to do with games, outdoors, camping, fitness or the like were wiped clean! They got back to the outdoors and back to their families. THAT IS SCOUTING!
Your time is valuable. More than ever, today’s families strive to find quality time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your child to do things together.
Cub Scout-age girls and boys benefit from belonging to a group of peers of their own age. Through this sense of belonging, Cub Scouts build self-esteem and learn to get along with others. As they continue through the program, they learn to be self-reliant, confident and problem solvers.
As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups that your child joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. The 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 everyone to “do your best” and to be helpful to others. There are always lessons in failures just as there are in wins and considering how someone's actions impact others is an invaluable virtue
Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your child. Scouting activities also brings added value to the time you already have with your child.
Cub Scouts will learn to live by the code of “On my honor.”
We know that boys and girls do not join Cub Scouting just to get their character built. They join because it is fun. And fun is at the heart of everything Cub Scouts do--from exploring natural habitats to building model cars and robots to trying sports like archery or telling stories around a campfire. Cub Scouts may be learning great lessons, but they’re far too busy having fun to notice!
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
