Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America. It is available to boys under the age of 11 who meet any of the following qualifications:

  • boys who are 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old
  • boys in the first through fifth grade and are not registered in a Boy Scout troop.

The Tiger Cub program for first graders and their adult partners emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, and family understanding. The Wolf and Bear Cub activities for second and third graders emphasize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
