Cub Scouting is fun! No matter what grade you are in, Kindergarten through 5th, it can be a blast. Boys and girls have a great time and learn by doing! You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, or learn how to use a pocket knife. How about build a model race car, plant a tree, or save a bee. Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a friend? Built a birdhouse? Hiked in the woods? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts.

Do Your Best
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty To God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
