Cub Scouts in a Nutshell

Your Son, Scouting and You
You want your son to grow up to be self-reliant, dependable and caring. We do, too.

Since 1910, Scouting has blended positive values into fun and educational activities designed to help parents strengthen their child’s character, citizenship and physical fitness. These values will help your son make good decisions throughout his life and give him confidence as he becomes an adult.

Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best
Cub Scouting is a home and neighborhood centered program designed to support family life for boys in first through fifth grades. Each Cub Scout learns to respect his family, country, God and other people. The program helps boys to:

  • Learn new physical skills through sports, crafts and games
  • Learn how to get along with others through group activities
  • Develop academic success through writing, math and science related badges
  • Develop personal independence

In a society where your son is often taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouting teaches him to “Do His Best” and be helpful to others as expressed in the Cub Scout Promise.

Purposes of Cub Scouting

  1. INFLUENCING the development of the boy’s character and spiritual life
  2. DEVELOPING habits and attitudes of good citizenship
  3. ENCOURAGING good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in mind and body
  4. IMPROVING understanding within the family
  5. STRENGTHEN the ability to get along with other boys and respect other people
  6. FOSTERING a sense of personal achievement by developing new interests and skills
  7. SHOWING how to be helpful and to do one’s best
  8. PROVIDING fun and exciting new things to do
  9. PREPARING them to become Boy Scouts

Scout Promise
On my honor I will do my best; To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

How Cub Scouting Works

Your son is a member of a den

  • A den has 6 to 8 boys
  • Meets once a week - every Tuesday
  • Led by a den leader (usually a parent of one of the boys)
  • The den leader is usually assisted by an assistant den leader
  • Den meetings have games, crafts, songs, ceremonies and lots of fun

Your son is a member of a Pack

  • A Pack is made up of dens:
    • Lions (Kindergarten)
    • Tigers (1st grade)
    • Wolf (2nd grade)
    • Bears (3rd grade)
    • Webelos I (4th grade)
    • Webelos II (5th grade)
  • Pack meeting is once a month – all cub scouting families attend
  • Meeting is led by the Cubmaster
  • A Pack meeting is the climax of the month’s den meeting and activities - meets the last Tuesday of the month
  • Pack meetings have games, skits, stunts, songs, ceremonies and presentation of awards that the boys have earned that month

Pack Committee

  • A Pack committee is made up of den leaders and assistants, Cubmaster and assistants and other committee members
  • The committee is led by a committee chairman and meets once a month - second Monday of the month
  • The committee plans pack activities, such as campouts, Pinewood Derby, Raingutter Regatta and more
  • The committee selects leaders, performs record keeping, manages pack finances, orders badges, maintains pack equipment and helps train leaders

Woodlawn Baptist Church is the chartered organization for Pack 15

  • Chartered organizations include parents-school associations, religious organizations, service clubs and other groups interested in youth
  • The chartered organization selects a representative called the charter representative, who serves as a liaison between Pack 15 and the organization
