Welcome to the best adventure of your life.
That’s what Cub Scouts is: one BIG adventure.
Whether you’re in Kindergarten, fifth grade or any grade in between, Cub Scouts is a blast. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, ad shoot a bow and arrow. You can cook a meal outdoors, go on a hike, and visit your local police and fire situations.
You’ll play sports, do some crafts and learn how to eat healthily. And each time you complete a task or learn and skill, you’ll earn an award called an adventure loop.
Adventure loops attach to your belt. Cub Scouts in Webelos and Arrow of Light dens earn adventure pins that attach to their uniform or cap. The older you get and the more you accomplish, the more adventure loops and pins you’ll earn.
Complete enough adventures and you will earn your rank patch.
Are you ready? Your next adventure is about to begin.
