Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family.  In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

There are four aims of Scouting: citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership. 

The methods of Cub Scouting are: living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform.

Den and Pack Leader Resources

The BSA has created a new page on Scouting.org dedicated to Cub Scout Leader Resources! This page has tons of videos, tips, tricks, ideas, and insight to help you deliver the best possible program for your Cubs. 

Cub Scout family camping and Pack “camp-ins” are popular activities designed to engage all Pack members in fun and adventure. Download this list of Garden State Council’s approved locations for Cub Scout overnight experiences!
