Why Scouting?

Scouting is a well-rounded program positively affecting every area of a boy's life. Scouting encourages boys to achieve a deeper appreciation for others, including peers, parents and other adults. Early in their Scouting experience, boys learn the value of serving others.

Scouting provides boys with a sense that they are important individuals. They learn that their Scouting family cares about what happens to them. Scouting activities and award programs teach personal responsibility and self-confidence. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, a boy can look at himself in the mirror and be proud.

Scouting involves a safe environment with positive role models. Parents, your son will learn confidence, belonging, quality family time, social skills, moral and ethical choices, teamwork, citizenship and fun.

Your Boy is a Member of a Den
A den consists of four to eight boys who meet according to their schedules. A den leader (usually a Scout's parent) is in charge of the activities, which include games, crafts, songs and ceremonies with a purpose- often leading toward badges and belt loops.

Your Boy is a Member of a Pack
A pack consists of several dens and meets at least once a month. The Cubmaster leads the pack meetings with Scouts and their families in attendance for fun activities and awards and recognition.
