Cub Scouting is for Boys! Cub Scouting gives boys a lot of fun and enjoyment. Singing, hiking, playing games, yelling making things, and (of course) eating, are some of those activities that Scouts enjoy. Happy boys are usually healthy boys.

Cub Scouting enables boys to learn new skills. They learn to do things by seeing and trying. They also learn how to take care of themselves. They can become skillful with woodworking, and electrical tools, and they can also learn skills with tools of the modern technological age.

Cub Scouting gives boys a chance to live, dramatize, and capture a sense of history. By participating in den skits at Pack meetings, they have an opportunity to learn about and reenact important events in our American heritage.

Cub Scouts learn some of the fundamental elements of teamwork as they share with one another. Self-discipline and self-control make it possible for everyone to have a better time. Team play is more fun than disorganized individual play. These are vital lessons.

Cub Scouting gives boys a chance for new experiences - an opportunity to visit businesses and organizations in the community that expands their understanding of how the community works.

Cub Scouts learn something about how to take responsibility for their appearance, for their conduct, and for their own achievement. When such habits and patterns are set early in life, the boys continue to behave responsibly as they get older.

The above paragraphs came from the National Capital Area Council powwow book.
