Cub Scouting is a chance to be a part of something fun! Boys and girls in Kindergarten through fifth grade will all find exciting challenges appropriate for their age.
Scouts learn by doing! Pack 379 holds regular events so that boys and girls get out and learn while having fun! Of course we get out and hike, but you can also look forward to camping in a tent, cooking your own meals in the outdoors, building and racing a Pinewood Derby car and more! All of this is done with the Pack or your Den, which is a smaller group of around eight boys or girls, all in the same grade.
Purposes and Methods
Cub Scouting uses the following methods in an age-appropriate way to reinforce the aims of scouting.
As the scouts grow and mature, so do these methods.
- Living the ideals
- Belonging to a den
- Family involvement
- Serving the neighborhood
Our pack is a “family scouting” pack. This means that both boys and girls are invited to join our program. Cub Scouts are organized into dens, grouped by age and gender. All of the dens then come together for pack meetings and activities.
Campouts and acitivities are family events and open to visitors who might be interested in joining scouting. Bring mom, dad, uncle Joe, your long lost cousin, and the neighbor boy who always shows up at dinnertime. We would love to meet them!
Build Your Adventure
Every year, Cub Scouts work towards earning a new rank.
- Lion, Kindergarten
- Tiger, First Grade
- Wolf, Second Grade
- Bear, Third Grade
- Webelos & Arrow of Light, Fourth & Fifth Grades
Cubs earn their rank by completing adventures, some required and some electives. These Adventure loops and pins are a great way to help fulfill the aims of Scouting—build character, develop citizenship, and encourage mental and physical fitness.
