It’s All About the Boys
Cub Scouting assists in teaching values and developing character in boys by offering a program where boys can experience value-based activities with caring leadership and family support.
In developing character, Cub Scouting promotes twelve core values: citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility.
As boys participate in a Cub Scout activity, they learn to “connect” their experience with a core value. Boys connect by learning (knowledge), feeling (commitment), and accomplishing (practice) the skills that relate to these values.
In an effort to make character development part of every boys’ experience in the Cub Scouting program, the “Character Connections” are integrated throughout the boys’ handbooks and advancement programs.
