When you sign your son up for Cub Scouting, you're signing him up for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it's cooking s'mores over a campfire or racing a Pinewood derby car, your son will learn new skills and build character while having fun!
Cub Scouting is a year-round program designed to meet the needs of young boys ages 7-10 and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Boys can begin as Tiger Cubs once they finish Kindergarten, then move into the Wolf (2nd grade or age 8) and Bear Cub Scout programs (3rd grade or age 9), and Webelos Scouts (4th and 5th grade or age 10). They then transition into Boy Scouts.
In National Capital Area Council, Cub Scouts and their families enjoy participating in age-appropriate camping opportunities, service projects, games and other fun activities that guide boys through Cub Scouting's core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Parents, leaders, and friends play an active role in the program as they encourage boys to live by the Cub Scout Motto: "Do Your Best!”
