When you’re a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young child’s life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fun isn’t easy, it’s always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.
What is Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts are broken into a small group called a pack. The pack you join is up to you. You can look for a pack chartered by an organization you support, or simply choose the one closest to your neighborhood.
Each pack has dedicated leaders and volunteers who are tasked with teaching Cub Scouts both fun and valuable lessons that will help them progress in the program and in life. But what makes Cub Scouts truly unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in each child’s development. From volunteering with the pack to leading activities at home, parents can take full advantage of the extra time they’ll have participating in their Cub Scout’s life.
Cub Scouting is the foundation of our organization. And while it is designed for girls and boys 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. The Mason-Dixon Council, BSA currently supports 34 Cub Scout packs in Fulton and Southern Franklin Counties in Pennsylvania, and Washington County, Maryland, including a S.T.E.M. based after school pack in inner-city Hagerstown, Maryland.
