The Purposes of Cub Scouting

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA's three membership divisions and it celebrated it's 75th anniversary in 2005. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)


The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  1. Character Development

  2. Spiritual Growth

  3. Good Citizenship

  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness

  5. Family Understanding

  6. Respectful Relationships

  7. Personal Achievement

  8. Friendly Service

  9. Fun and Adventure

  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts



Cub Scouting members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a den, usually a neighborhood group of six to eight boys. Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) meet twice a month.

Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of a Cub master and pack committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the chartered organization.

Volunteer Leadership

Thousands of volunteer leaders, both men and women, are involved in the Cub Scout program. They serve in a variety of positions, as everything from unit leaders to pack committee chairmen, committee members, den leaders, and chartered organization representatives. Like other phases of the Scouting program, a Cub Scout pack belongs to an organization with interests similar to those of the BSA. This organization, which might be a church, school, community organization, or group of interested citizens, is chartered by the local BSA council to use the Scouting program. This chartered organization provides a suitable meeting place, adult leadership, supervision, and opportunities for a healthy Scouting life for the boys under its care. Each organization appoints one of its members as a chartered organization representative. The organization, through the pack committee, is responsible for providing leadership, the meeting place, and support materials for pack activities. Volunteers are always needed, if you are interested in getting involved in Cub Scouting please contact Pack 135 by clicking on the pack number above.

Character Development

Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today.
Character can be defined as the collection of core values possessed by an individual that leads to moral commitment and action. Core values are the basis of good character development. In helping boys develop character, Cub Scouting promotes the following 12 core values.

  1. Citizenship

  2. Compassion

  3. Cooperation

  4. Courage

  5. Faith

  6. Health and fitness

  7. Honesty

  8. Perseverance

  9. Positive attitude

  10. Resourcefulness

  11. Respect

  12. Responsibility

Character is "values in action."
