Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts

Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young, but carry forward into their adult lives. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.

* Cub Scouts is open to all boys in grades 1-5.
* Boy Scouts is open to all boys ages 11 (or 10 and finished 5th grade) through 18.
* Venturing is a co-ed program available to all youth ages 14 through 21.
