Cub Scouts



Cub Scouts experience a wide range of social activities and award requirements that develop their self-responsibility, confidence, and service ethic. Neighborhood and family centered, Cub Scouts meet weekly or bi-weekly in small groups (dens) in homes or other community locations led by volunteer den leaders, and monthly in pack meetings with families and all other dens. They work on award requirements (advancements) at meetings and with their families, as well as take part in pack/den field trips and special Cub Camps. 

Cub Scouts belong to Packs and Dens. 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 four to eight boys. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world. Watch this video.

Rank Requirements


One of the great strengths of the Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting programs is the opportunity for personal advancement by learning and doing skills and activities. Each Grade Level Program has an advancement program tailored for that age. The requirements for each Grade Level advancement are spelled out in the Handbook for that Grade Level. Many den leaders work their den meeting programs around either monthly themes and/or for completion of advancement activities in the Handbook. 

Requirements for advancement are sometimes done at den meetings, sometimes done at home, and are signed off in the Scout Handbook by a parent as completed. The Scout then shows the signed off Handbook to the Den Leader, who keeps track of each Scout’s advancement progress. The Den Leader will report this advancement progress to the Pack Advancement Chairman, and there will be recognitions and presentations of achievements which will be presented at Pack Meetings.

The Pack Committee


Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee, which consists of at least three members (chair, secretary, and treasurer). By handling administrative and support tasks, the pack committee allows the Cubmaster, den leaders, and their assistants to focus on working directly with the Cub Scouts.

With a committee of three, members must assume responsibility for more areas of service than with a committee of seven or more. Although packs can and do operate with a minimum of three committee members, experience has shown that a larger committee generally ensures a stronger, more stable pack and is better able to perform all the required functions to ensure a successful pack program. It is also a way of involving more pack families in meaningful service to the pack.

Qualifications: Is at least 21 years old, is selected by the chartered organization, and is registered as an adult leader of the BSA. One member is designated as pack committee chair.
