The Values of Cub Scouting
Cub Scout leaders strive to use Cub Scouting's 12 Core Values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings.

The Benefits of Cub Scouting
As a worldwide brotherhood, Scouting is a movement dedicated to bringing out the best in people. All Scouting activities benefit the growth and development of boys.

Cub Scout Leader Basic Training Courses

Every young person in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun – in short, a trained leader. Because they understand their role, trained leaders have a positive influence in the lives of the youth. Research shows that Cub Scouts with trained leaders enjoy the program more and stay in it longer. How well we influence the lives of these youth depends on the leaders’ understanding of the program and their responsibilities.
