Cub Scouting is a family and home centered program. Cub Scouting encourages a boy to "Do Your Best." Cub Scouting is an active family program that develops character, teaches citizenship and promotes fitness. It includes service projects, games, pinewood derbies, day camps, parent-son overnighters, projects, ceremonies and outdoor activities.
Cub Scouting means "doing." Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting-citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.
