When you are a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young child’s life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fun is not easy, it is always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.
With more than 130 Merit Badges—from Archery and Art to Welding and Wilderness Survival—Scouting is the ultimate form of learning by doing. Scouts explore their interests and improve their skills while working toward Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle. By first imagining, planning then doing their own service projects, Scouts learn the value of hard work, and experience the thrill of seeing it pay off. Add in outdoor adventures, hiking, and camping and Scouting gives youth experience that will benefit them throughout their life.
With fun and adventure at every turn, Scouting makes the most of right now. What’s more, it builds positive character and provides young people a foundation they can stand on to embrace opportunity, overcome obstacles, make lasting friendships, learn new skills and make new discoveries.
