A research study by Tufts University showed that more
time spent in Scouting results in better character development.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful,
friendly, courteous, kind, obedient,
cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean,
The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
A Message From Our Cubmaster
Our focus for 2021-2022 is to get our scouts outdoors even more than usual. All scouts will have opportunities to camp, hike, fish, ride bikes, swim, and participate in many other activities. The program this year will focus on the dens, small groups of 5-12 kids plus parents to ensure that we are being as safe as possible. Our usual pack level activities will instead be delivered in these smaller groups. We want all of our boys/girls to have an amazing year, and the pack leaders are working together to make that a reality.
The life lessons learned here not only transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s Scouts BSA members but also help form a foundation to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles in life.
The cub scout motto is to ‘do your best’. That’s what we ask of our scouts, and what the pack leadership promises to you, the parents, about our commitment to provide a safe and fun activity for your boys and girls.

Our Scout Leaders
For more than 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
