The Cub Scouts is an exciting start to the Scouting adventure. Boys may be between the ages of 7 and 10 to join.
“The best way to find out what you do best is to do it. Swing a bat. Pitch a tent. Build a pinewood derby® car. Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and, most important, fun. They live in a world of “firsts”—first home run, first campfire, first checkered flag—where their game plan is their imagination. Their most valuable reward is the friends they make for life and a parent’s proud smile. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s Boy Scouts.”
The Boy Scouts is the true journey into adulthood. Boys Between the ages of 11-17 may participate.
“Most boys avoid obstacles. Boy Scouts seek them. They live for any opportunity to display their abilities while learning new skills. Camping is fun. Surviving a downpour in the middle of the night is an adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun. Learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun. Breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Boy Scouts into tomorrow’s leaders.”
The Venturers are a high-adventure group. High school age – 21 years old boys and girls may participate.
“Life is a series of tests. Shooting the rapids. Rappelling a cliff. Writing a resume. Each one can be a setback, or a chance to shine. Working as a team, the young adults in every Venturing crew welcome the opportunity to pass these trials. A series of successes that build one upon another. Every person playing their role. No one more important than their partners. No challenge achievable without cooperation. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Venturers into tomorrow’s responsible adults.”
