Pack 561 Highlights
Benefits of Scouting
Cub Scouts is designed for all boys who are in first grade through the end of fourth grade. We accept ANY boy who meets the age and grade requirements in our pack and will not be turned down for any physical or mental disability.
During their time in scouts, boys will learn much more than just tying knots. The Scout program has been revamped in an effort to focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as a core part of the experience. Scouts will build rockets, visit science museums, and even do a robotics badge as part of their advancement.
In addition to the new focus on STEM, scouts will continue to learn the more traditional aspects of scouting. There will be activities covering nature, building bird houses and feeders, hiking, tree planting, and numerous other outdoor learning activities.
Best of all, your son will do all these activities with boys his age, developing friendships that will last a lifetime.
