The Purposes of Cub Scouting

The Purposes of Cub Scouting

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing).

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

Cub Scout Promise

I, (state your name), promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack.

More than 2 million boys make this promise every year as members of Cub Scouting. This neighborhood-centered program for boys in first through fifth grades combines fun and adventure with skills and values development.

Cub Scout Motto

Do Your Best.

Law of the Pack

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.

Colors

The Cub Scouting colors are blue and gold. They have special meaning, which will help boys see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals.

  • Blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above.
  • Gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness.
