Cub Scouts is an active program for youth, Kindergarten through fifth grades, that encourages learning, friendship and most of all fun!  Children learn by doing and there is no end to the fun things that Cub Scouts do with their families, their Cub Scout Pack, and at special events.  Cub Scouts can camp under the stars, learn to tie knots, visit a police station and shoot a bow and arrow.  There is no limit to the fun things your Scout will do!


Children want to join Scouting because it is FUN!  But you'll love it for all the other benefits your child receives.  Scouting teaches leadership and character.  Scouting builds confidence and social skills.  Scouting teaches the value of service and citizenship.  And Scouting brings families closer together.


How does Scouting work?

Each Scout is a member of a Pack which is broken up into Dens.  Dens are groups of 6-10 children around the same age who meet each week at a local school, place of worship or other community locations.  Dens go on fun trips, play games, do service projects and learn new skills.  Parents take leadership roles in the Den and help Scouts earn badges for learning fun new things.  The whole Pack gets together about once a month and attends larger activities together such as a weekend camping trip.

How much does Scouting cost?

Scouting has fees for membership and activities.  The annual membership fee is $85 which includes a $5 fee for insurance and Boy's Life magazine is an optional $15 plus tax per year plus a one-time $25 joining fee for all new Scouts.  When joining, both of these fees are prorated by month.  Other costs vary depending on the activities of your local Pack and typically range from $40-$80 annually.  One of the key values of Scouting is that Scouts should help earn their own way.  That is why we offer multiple opportunities throughout the year for your child to earn the money needed to camp and participate in other activities.

Is Scouting in my neighborhood?

Absolutely!  There are tons of organizations in neighborhoods throughout the Flint River Council area that sponsor Cub Scout Packs.  Cub Scouts meet at service organizations, places of worship, schools and more, all within a comfortable distance to your home.  To find a Pack near you, give us a call at 770-227-4556.

 Who will lead my son's Pack?

 Cub Scouting is a family activity!  You will have the opportunity to take a role in leading your child's experience - and we are here to help you become the best leader you can be with  training, online resources and support from our Scout Service Center.

 Every volunteer leader is required to go through a rigorous background check and Youth Protection Training process that ensures your child will be in a safe and fun program.  The  Flint River Council provides many training opportunities for our leaders to enhance the program they deliver, and increase the skills they can pass onto our Scouts.

 What about other activities like sports?

 Lots of children take part in Scouting along with a variety of other activities like sports, music, academic interest and more.  These programs all work together with Scouting to provide  your child with a balance of adult role models and experiences.
