There are 5 levels to Cub Scouting (click on each for more information):

Lion (for boys enrolled in Kindergarten, new pilot program)
Tiger (after completing Kindergarten)

Wolf (after completing 1st grade)
Bear (after completing 2nd grade)
Webelos (after completing 3rd grade)
Arrow of Light (after completing 4th grade)


Boys are placed in dens according to grade.  Each den consists of approximately 8 boys and 1 or 2 Den Leaders.

In Cub Scouts, all dens come together to be included in a larger group called a “Pack”. We are Pack 89. We have one monthly Pack meeting on a Monday where the boys from each den get together. We also meet every Monday for weekly den meeting from 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) program has three overall aims:
  1. Character development: to build character, to build self-reliance, self-discipline, self-confidence and self-respect
  2. Citizenship Training: to foster love of community, country and world, along with a commitment of service to others and an understanding of democratic principles.
  3. Personal Fitness: to develop physical, mental, emotional, and moral fitness that will stay with a Scout for the rest of his life.
Cub Scouting assists in teaching values and developing character in boys by offering a program where boys can experience value based activities with caring leadership and family support. The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The goal is simple: develop today’s youth into tomorrow’s leaders and good citizens for America. Scouting reinforces America’s communities and families with its quality, values-based programs.

As boys participate in a Cub Scout activity, they learn to “connect” their experience with a core value. Boys connect by learning (knowledge), feeling (commitment), and accomplishing (practice) the skills that relate to these values. In an effort to make character development part of every boy’s experience in the Cub Scout program, the “Character Connections” will be integrated throughout the boys’ handbooks and advancement programs. These aims are met through the purposes of the Cub Scouting which are:

The 10 Purposes of Cub Scouts

Family Understanding
