Cub Scouting Is Fun
Youth join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun. Fun means a lot more than just having a good time. “Fun” is a code word for the satisfaction one gets from meeting challenges, making friends, feeling good about yourself, and feeling important to other people. While the scouts are having fun and doing things they like to do, they also learn new things, discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop strong friendships.
Cub Scouting Provides Adventure
Cub Scouting helps fulfill a kid’s desire for adventure and allows them to use his vivid imagination while taking part in skits, games, field trips, service projects, outdoor activities, and more. A variety of adventure themes let a youth play the role of an astronaut, clown, explorer, scientist, or other exciting character. Scouts find adventure in exploring the outdoors, learning about nature, and gaining a greater appreciation for our beautiful world.
Cub Scouting Promotes Diversity
In Cub Scouting, boys and girls may learn to interact in a group that may include yout of various ethnicities, income levels, religions, and levels of physical ability. By having fun together and working as a group toward common goals, Cub Scouts learn the importance of not only getting along, but also of working side by side with others who may be of different races, classes, religions, cultures, etc.
Cub Scouting Provides a Year-Round Program
Cub Scouting has no specific “season”—it’s a year-round program. While spring and summer pack activities are informal and there are many activities that Cub Scouts do outdoors, there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the fall and winter: the pinewood derby, blue and gold banquet, skits, stunts, craft projects, and indoor games help to round out an entire year of fun and activities.
