Why should you enroll your son in Scouting?

There are many reasons: To help him learn to be part of a team, to reinforce ethical decision-making, to teach goal-setting and how to lead others. It’s great if our kids are smart and athletic, but in the end what matters is that they are good people. We help parents do that.

Don’t take our word for it. See what other parents are saying about Scouting…

Cub Scouts (grades 1-5)

In Cub Scouting, boys and their families have fun and adventure in a program that builds character and instills values. Cub Scouting embraces the values of citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility. These values come to boys in all parts of the Cub Scout program – all while they’re having a great time with their friends and families.  For more information, visit the national Cub Scouting website.  To register a new Cub Scout right now, click here!
