ProgramsCub Scouting




Cub Scouting is a family and home-centered program for boys in the first through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old). Cub Scouting's emphasis is on providing a quality program at the local level, where boys and families are involved. First Grade (or age 7) boys are called Tiger Cubs. Fourth- and fifth-grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos (WE'll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts.
