Cub Scouts is a program offered by the Boy Scouts of America for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Cub Scouts participate in a variety of adventures.
Lions, Tigers, Wolves and Bears earn belt loops to recognize their achievements. Webelos earn pins. When a number of adventures are completed at a level, a Cub Scout earns the rank patch for that level.

A well organized Pack Committee makes the Cubmaster’s job much easier and ensures that a quality program is delivered to the youth.
