Cub Scouting is for Boys and Girls of all backgrounds.

In Cub Scouts families are the most important influence on scout development.

Cub Scouting is fun. When Cub Scouts have fun they are also learning new things, discover and master new skills, gaining self-confidence, and developing strong friendships.

Cub Scouts have ideals. We maintain our ideals of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. The Cub Scout Promise is a pledge of duty to God and other people.

We provide adventure.  Scouting helps fulfill a boy’s desire for adventure and allows him to use his vivid imagination while taking part in skits, games, field trips, service projects, and more.

Scouts help boys develop skills and interests. Kids learn many useful skills and interests that could develop into careers or hobbies.

Cub Scouting has an Advancement Plan, Our plan recognizes boys’ individual efforts and achievements, teaches them to do their best, and strengthens family ties.

Cub Scouts belong. Boys take part in meaningful activities learning sportsmanship and citizenship. The Cub Scout uniform helps boys feel part of a distinct group that shares a common purpose.

Cub Scouting teaches boys and girls to reach out. Through field trips and service projects boys get to know their community better and learn to be a good citizen.

Cub Scouting teaches duty of God and country. Through flag ceremonies, service projects, and other activities, scouts help fulfill their duty to God and become participating citizens.

“The person I am today is because of the building blocks I learned when my den leader taught me to be part of a group and to help my den, family and community. I aspired to be the top scout and through it I learned leadership. If you are a parent who is looking to instill self-reliance and want your son to be a leader, then Scouting is one of few places that offers that” – – – – – Scoutmaster Robert Rojas
