How Cub Scouting Works

Cub Scouting is designed to provide opportunities for families to work and play together, to have fun together, and to get to know each other a little better. Parents are an integral part of Cub Scouting.

THE DEN

As a Cub Scout, your son is a part of a group of boys his own age called a DEN. With his Den, your son will build confidence and self-esteem and earn recognition. He will also gain a sense of personal achievement from the new skills he learns. Dens are usually between 6 and 10 boys with one or two parents who are the Den Leaders. Most Dens meet twice a month. Den meetings have games, crafts, songs, ceremonies and lots of FUN!

THE PACK

The PACK is led by a Cubmaster and is made up of several Dens. Your son’s Den will meet once a month as part of the Pack. These meetings are a time for boys to be recognized for their accomplishments, and to have fun with the entire family. The Pack will also hold several special activities each year.

Cubmaster

Cody Villar

Everything the Cubmaster does is aimed at helping the individual boy. Securing strong leaders, planning Den and Pack activities (especially Pack Meetings and outdoor activities), advising other leaders and adult family members — these are all ways in which the Cubmaster affects the kind of Cub Scouting each boy in the Pack is offered. The Cubmaster directly influences the lives of individual boys by keeping in mind that boys can become better through Cub Scouting.
