• Your time is valuable. Today’s families, more than ever, struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouts helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your son to do
things together.

• Your son needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Through this sense of belonging he builds his self esteem and learns to get along with others. As a parent, you want be assured that the groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.

• In a society where your son is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouts teaches him to “do his best” and to be helpful to others.

• Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your son. But we know that boys do not join Cub Scouts just to get their character built. Boys join because it is fun.
