What is a Cub Scout?
As a Cub Scout you will be part of your own pack.
The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school.
Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, pine wood derby races, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means "doing."
Cub Scout Camping
Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You'll learn to live with others in the outdoors and to be a good citizen of the outdoors.
Camping is fun, and it's good for your mind, body, and spirit. It helps you learn to rely on yourself—on your own skills and knowledge. When you go camping as a Cub Scout, you get skills you will learn and use more, later, as a Boy Scout.
Cub Scout camping has day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, family camps, and pack overnighters.
Cub Scout Derbies
Racing in a Cub Scout derby is great fun. You'll get to design your racing vehicle, work with a parent to build it, and see it perform on race day....
Outings and Field Trips
"Outing" is a big part of Scouting. Cub Scouts get out and about with many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation... Scouting can be especially adventurous living in Europe!
Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise "to help other people." A Cub Scout should always do his best to help others.
