Serving All Youth in Grades K-5
Sharon Cub Scouts
What is Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouts is a program within the Scouts BSA that serves youth from 5-11. The Cub Scouts program aims to prepare youth to grow into self-reliant and dependable adults.
Cub Scouts achieve this with a lineup of hands-on activities and adventures focused on:
- Character Development
- Spiritual Growth
- Good Citizenship
- Sportsmanship and Fitness
- Family Understanding
- Respectful Relationships
- Personal Achievement
- Friendly Service
- Fun and Adventure
- Preparation for Scouts BSA (older scout program)
What are Packs and Dens?
Cub Scouts are organized into Dens by grade (Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos). These Dens each have their own leaders and they meet twice a month, usually for about an hour. At the Den meetings the scouts will work on earning age-appropriate badges and engage in fun and interesting activities and outings. Many Den meetings will happen outdoors. All indoor Den meetings will follow all Covid guidelines and will take place usually at Our Lady of Sorrows, First Congregational Church of Sharon, or at a private home. Den meetings are attended by all the scouts in that grade, at least two adult leaders, any parents who want to attend, and sometimes an older scout who is serving as a Den Chief.
All the Dens in an area belong to the Pack, which meets once a month, usually on the 3rd Sunday afternoon for an hour and a half. Pack meetings are held either outdoors or at First Congregational Church in Sharon. At Pack meetings kids of a wider range of ages showcase what they’re learning in their dens. That means outdoor fun, games, learning stations, and award ceremonies happen with a wide variety of Cub Scouts and their families. The Pack meetings also host pack-wide events such as the Rain Gutter Regatta, the Pinewood Derby, and the Rocket Launch.
How much does it cost?
For $175 you get 10 months of programming, all the activities, badges, and derby and rocket kits. There is also a $25 joining fee for new scouts. For less than $20 per month your child will learn new skills, make new friends, engage in new adventures, practice both teamwork and competition, perform service to the community, and realize they are stronger, braver, and kinder than they knew before.
