Why Join Scouting? To Have Fun! To Learn! To Grow!

Scouting is unique.  It is based on the principles of a loving and serving God, of human dignity and the rights of individuals.  Scouting is dedicated to bringing out the best in people.  Cub Scouting doesn't emphasize winning as an end result, but rater the far more demanding task of doing one's best.  Helping children to learn the value of their own worth is the greatest gift we can give them.

Cub Scouting is fun.  While the scouts are having fun doing things they like to do, they also learn new things, discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop strong friendships.

Cub Scouting has ideals.  It has the ideals of spiritual and character growth, citizenship training, and personal fitness built into the program.

Cub Scouting strengthens families.  The program provides opportunities for family members to work and play together, to have fun together, and to get to know each other a little better.  Scouting is a support to all types of families as well as to organizations to which families belong. 

Cub Scouting helps children develop interests and skills.  Throughout the program, children participate in a broad array of activities.  Cub Scouts develop ability and dexterity, and they learn to use tools and follow directions.

Cub Scouting provides adventure.  It helps fulfill children's desire for adventure and allows them to use their vivid imagination while taking part in skits, games, field trips, service projects, outdoor activities, and more.

Cub Scouting has an advancement plan.  The advancement plan recognizes a scout's efforts and achievements.  Badges are awarded to recognize advancement and children like to receive and wear these badges.

Cub Scouting creates fellowship.  In Cub scouting, children belong to a small group called a den where they take part in interesting and meaningful activities with their friends.

Cub Scouting promotes diversity.  Scouts learn to interact in a group that likely includes children of various ethnicities, income levels, religions, and levels of physical ability.  They learn the importance of not only getting along, but also of working side by side with children different from themselves.

Cub Scouting teaches duty to God and country.  We believe no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without an obligation to God and we encourage both youth and adult leaders to be faithful in their religious duties.  We also believe that patriotism plays a significant role in preparing our nation's youth to become useful and participating citizens.  A Cub Scout learns his duty to God, country, others, and self.

Cub Scouting is a positive place.  With all the negative influences in today's society, scouting provides your children with a positive peer group who can encourage them in all the right ways.
