What do we do?

We camp, hike, fish, and swim while teaching responsibility, independence, and safety. We start with the simple things like asking our scouts to wash their own dishes when camping. When your Cub Scout moves on to Scouting they will be ready to plan and lead their own activities.

What about parents while they are still cubs?

Cub Scouts is a family adventure run by parents. Families are encouraged to participate and help with activities. For the younger ranks (Lions and Tigers), parents are required to attend all events with their scouts.

Who are the leaders?

All of our leaders are parents. As scouts move on, we have a need for new leaders every year. Registered Den and Pack Leaders must pass BSA background checks and complete online training. Please consider helping by becoming a den leader, assistant den leader or by accepting a position on the Pack Committee (chair, treasurer, membership, secretary, etc.).
