Being a Cub Scout
Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.
During the school year, Pack 151 Cub Scouts meet twice a month with their Den and once a month with the entire Pack. Twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall, Pack 151 hosts a one or two night family camping trip to a local State park. Several times each year there are opportunities to volunteer with a local Non-Profit.
Aims and Methods
There are four aims of Scouting: citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership.
The methods of Cub Scouting are: living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform.
Over the past several years Scouting has partnered with colleges, universities, and foundations to study the impact of the program.
