• Your time is valuable. Today’s families, more than ever, struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouts helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your son to do
things together.

• Your son needs to belong to a group of boys his own age. Through this sense of belonging he builds his self esteem and learns to get along with others. As a parent, you want be assured that the groups that your boy joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.

• In a society where your son is taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouts teaches him to “do his best” and to be helpful to others.

• Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your son. But we know that boys do not join Cub Scouts just to get their character built. Boys join because it is fun.



The uniqueness of Cub Scouting is that you, as his family, join the program with your son. You will
help him along the way. The family is the basis of the Cub Scout program. Cub Scouts exists to
support your family and help enrich your family activities. Boys have a different handbook at each
grade level with suggested activities that are age-appropriate for their developmental level. As boys
“advance” through these books by working on activities with their family, they will earn badges and
other recognition which may be worn on their Cub Scout uniform. Your son’s success in Cub Scouting
depends on you!

The Cub Scout program is further enhanced at two other levels. Your son will be a part of a “den” – a small group of boys in the same grade level who meet on a weekly basis. All dens from grade one through five make up a “pack.” Once a month, all dens meet together at the pack meeting, a family event which gives boys an opportunity to show off the new skills they have learned during the month and to be recognized for the badges they have earned.


The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  1. Character Development
  2. Spiritual Growth
  3. Good Citizenship
  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness
  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun and Adventure
  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts


• Tiger Cubs is a parent-child program. The boy and his parent or guardian join together and attend all meetings and activities together.
• The Tiger Cub den is made up of three to eight parent-son teams.
• Meets 2-3 times a month
• Each den has a Tiger Cub den leader (usually one of the parents) who helps coordinate the Tiger Cub den meetings. Each parent-son team takes a turn running the activities and planning the meeting with the Tiger Cub den leader.
