What Is 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:
- Character Development
- Spiritual Growth
- Good Citizenship
- Sportsmanship and Fitness
- Family Understanding
- Respectful Relationships
- Personal Achievement
- Friendly Service
- Fun and Adventure
- Preparation for Boy Scouts
Cub Scouting Ideals
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise,
the Law of the Pack, the Tiger Cub motto, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake,
motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense
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.
- The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the
- The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness.
