Cub Scouting Is Fun

Boys join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun. For boys, however, fun means a lot more than just having a good time. “Fun” is a boy’s code word for the satisfaction he gets from meeting challenges, having friends, feeling good about himself, and feeling he is important to other people.

Cub Scouting Provides a Year-Round Program

Cub Scouting has no specific “season”—it’s a year-round program. While spring and summer pack activities are informal and there are many activities that Cub Scouts do outdoors, there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the fall and winter: the pinewood derby, blue and gold banquet, skits, stunts, craft projects, and indoor games help to round out an entire year of fun and activities.
