Why Join Cub 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 son to do things together.
• Cub Scout-age children benefit developmentally from belonging to a group of children their own age. Through this sense of belonging, they build self-esteem and learn to get along with others.
• 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 son or daughter is taught that winning is everything,Cub Scouting teaches him to “do their best” and to be helpful to others.
• Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son or daughter. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your child.
• They will learn to live by the code of “On my honor.” But we know that they do not join Cub Scouting just to get their character built. Boys and Girls 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. Boys and Girls in Cub Scouting might be learning great lessons, but they’re far too busy having fun to notice.
