ABOUT CUB SCOUTS
Cub Scouting is part of the Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), available to boys and girls from Kindergarten through fifth grade, or 6 to 11½ years of age and their families. Its membership is the largest of the three BSA divisions (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturing). Cub Scouts is part of the worldwide Scouting movement and aims to promote character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with more than 2.4 million youth members and nearly one million adult volunteers. Since its founding in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, more than 110 million Americans have been at some point members of the BSA.
The BSA's goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.
