What Is Cub Scouting?

The Purposes of Cub Scouting

Since 1930, Scouts BSA has helped our youth through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for kids who are in kindergarten through fifth grade (or 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA`s three membership divisions. (The others are Scouting and Venturing.)

The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  1. Character Development
  2. Spiritual Growth
  3. Good Citizenship
  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness
  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun and Adventure
  10. Preparation for Scouts


Cub Scouting members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a den, usually a neighborhood group of six to eight boys or girls. Lion Cubs (kindergartners), Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) meet weekly.

Once a month, or as otherwise scheduled, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of the Cubmaster and Pack Committee. The Pack Committee includes parents of children in the pack and members of the chartered organization.

Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, the Tiger Cub motto, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a child`s sense of belonging.

Cub Scout Oath (or Promise)

On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my Country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. 

Cub Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

Cub Scout Motto

Do Your Best!

Tiger Cub Motto

The Cub Scout colors are blue and gold. They have special meaning, which will help children see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals.

The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness.
