Cub Scouts

Earn Your “It’s More Fun With Friends” Badge!

When you sign your son or daughter up for Cub Scouting, you’re signing him or her up for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it’s cooking s’mores over a campfire or racing a Pinewood derby car, your son or daughter will learn new skills and build character while having fun!

Cub Scouting is a year-round program designed to meet the needs of young boys and girls ages 5-10 and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Youth can begin as Lion Cubs once they start Kindergarten, then move into Tiger (1st grade) then move into the Wolf (2nd grade or age 8) and Bear Cub Scout programs (3rd grade or age 9), and Webelos Scouts (4th grade) and Finally Arrow of Light (AoL) (5th grade or age 10). They then transition into Scouts BSA.

In National Capital Area Council, Cub Scouts and their families enjoy participating in age-appropriate camping opportunities, service projects, games and other fun activities that guide boys and girls through Cub Scouting’s core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Parents, leaders, and friends play an active role in the program as they encourage boys and girls to live by the Cub Scout Motto: “Do Your Best!”
