Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of children and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are expected to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children.
Cub Scouting is the foundation of our organization. And while it is designed for children in the kindergarten through fifth grades, this program really involves the whole family as parents pitch in to plan and deliver activities. Cub Scouting is affirmative and fun focused. There are currently 1.3 million Cub Scouts and 395,000 adult volunteers in the United States.
