When you sign your son or daughter up for Cub Scouting, you’re signing him or her for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it’s cooking s’mores over a campfire or racing a Pinewood Derby car, your son or daughter will learn new skills and build character while having fun! Our program is designed to be hands-on, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in our programs.
Cub Scouting is a year-round program designed to meet the needs of young boys and girls ages 5-10 and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Youth can begin at any age and will be placed in the appropriate cub program based on their grade level.
On the advancement trail, a Cub Scout progresses towards a badge of rank based on their grade. They need not have earned the previous rank in order to earn the next. Each of the ranks in Cub Scouting has its own requirements that are age appropriate, so earning a rank below a Cub Scout’s current grade is not permitted. As a Cub Scout advances through the ranks, the requirements get more challenging, to match the new skills and abilities they have learned.
Scouting embraces the outdoors through camping, hiking and water sports. We also focus on helping our communities through service projects, STEM development and building confident kids through our wide range of activities. The Cub Scout program is designed to develop physical, mental and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
In Pony Express Council, Cub Scouts and their families enjoy participating in age-appropriate camping opportunities, service projects, games and other fun activities that guide boys and girls through Cub Scouting’s core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Parents, leaders, and friends play an active role in this.
