Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the 10 purposes of Cub Scouting:
Sportsmanship & Fitness
Fun & Adventure
Preparation for Boy Scouts
The Cub Scouts of America colors are blue and gold. They have special meaning, which will help boys see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals. The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer and happiness. As a boy begins the Boy Scout Trail, he joins other boys his own age. He can start the scouting program at any age from 6 to 17 years old. The Cub Scout program is for 1st graders through 3rd graders - Tiger cubs, Wolf scouts, and Bear scouts.
