The Purposes of Cub Scouting

Since 1930, the BSA has helped younger boys (and now girls too) through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten through fifth grade (or 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA`s membership divisions. (The others are Scouting BSA, Sea Scouts and Venturing.)
