Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience
concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to
build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements
were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub
Scouting today. There are 10 Purposes of Cub Scouting.
Character development should extend into every aspect of a boy's life and also extend into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders should 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.
