Build an adventure in Cub Scouting
Fourth and Fifth Grade
How does Cub Scouting work?
Cub Scouting makes the most of right now. The Cub Scouting program provides youth with a foundation they can stand on to embrace opportunity, overcome obstacles and make new discoveries. But what makes Cub Scouting truly unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in a child’s development.
The Cub Scout program is designed to involve your child with other children the same age, where together they have fun, make friends and see new things, while gaining a sense of personal achievement from the new skills learned.
Cub Scouts are structured around Dens and Packs that help organize the program into various groups.
Your child becomes a member of a Den…
- A Den is made up of no more than eight children who are the same age and/or in the same grade.
- The Den meets two to three times a month. One of the Den meetings each month is a “Go See It,” or field trip.
- The Den has a Den leader, and the Den leader shares the planning of the Den meeting with the parents.
Your child is also a member of a Pack…
- A Pack consists of several Dens and meets once a month.
- The Cubmaster leads the monthly Pack meeting, and each Den will have a part in the Pack meeting.
- Some months, the Pack meeting will have a special theme, such as Pinewood Derby, Blue & Gold Banquet or guest speakers. Other months may be devoted to recognizing the Scouts for the projects they have completed by the presentation of beads, belt loops, activity pins or rank advancements.
