In Cub Scouting, children and their families have fun and adventure in a program that builds character and instills values. Cub Scouting embraces the values of the Scout Law, encouraging Scouts to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. These values come to youth in all parts of the Cub Scout program – all while having a great time with their friends and families.
This is the traditional Scouting experience for youth age 11 through 17. Service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities working their way towards earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
Venturing is an inclusive program through the Boy Scouts of America for males and females aged 14-20 (or 13 and completed the 8th grade).
