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.
