The Boy Scouts is a volunteer based organization and guided by our local professionals. Throughout the United States there are more than 1.5 million registered volunteer leaders, but we always need more help in Scouting, so if you are interested in volunteering let us know.
There are several different activities, events, and programs the Cub scouts are able to participate in. Here are some that are typically offered by most packs.
Pinewood Derby: Boys work with adults to build a race car from a kit. Different prizes can be won based on speed and design. The derbies usually happen during early spring.
