Scouts at flagsWhat is Cub Scouting?

 

Boys join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun. For boys, however, fun means a lot more than just having a good time. “Fun” is a boy’s code word for the satisfaction he gets from meeting challenges, having friends, feeling good about himself, and feeling he is important to other people.

But what makes Cub Scouts truly unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in each child’s development.

A recent multi-year study* has demonstrated that Scouting builds positive character in youth, specifically:

  • Scouts are more likely to embrace pro-social values (cheerfulness, helpfulness, kindness, obedience, trustworthiness) than non-Scouts
  • Scouts also showed increases in other key markers for well-being and success such as hopeful future-expectations and intentional self-regulation.
  • Scouting is successful in preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices throughout their lifetimes as well as preparing them for success in life.
