For Families with Boys or Girls in Grades K-5
When you’re a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young boy's life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fun isn’t easy, it’s always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.
Cub Scout Pack 184
We're a large group of families with boys and girls in grades K-5. Most children are from Erial, Union Valley, or James W. Lilley Elementary schools, but the pack you join is your choice. We're happy that you've chosen us. Our pack is divided into several small dens of 6-8 boys or girls who are in the same grade.
Our pack has dedicated leaders and volunteers who are tasked with teaching Cub Scouts both fun and valuable lessons that will help them progress in the program and in life. But what makes Cub Scouts truly unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in each child’s development. From volunteering with the pack to leading activities at home, parents can take full advantage of the extra time they’ll have participating in their Cub Scout's life.
Discover fun, adventure, and learning through Scouting
Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of children and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children.
Scouting is designed to be experienced outdoors. Hiking, camping, mountain biking, skateboarding, BMX, mountain climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting--these are just some of a Scout’s outdoor experiences.
How Scouting Works
The Scouting program is delivered through local civic, faith-based, and educational institutions called chartered organizations, which operate Scouting units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.
Together, these organizations are run by almost one million adult volunteers dedicated to helping youth learn and grow.
Cub Scouting is the foundation of our organization. And while it is designed for kids in Kindergarten through fifth grades, this program really involves the whole family as parents pitch in to plan and deliver activities. Cub Scouting is affirmative and fun focused. There are currently 1.3 million Cub Scouts and 395,000 adult volunteers in the United States.
Scouts progress from rank to rank, learning new skills as they go. Each of the ranks and awards in Scouting has its own requirements. As Scouts get older and advance, the requirements become more challenging to match newfound skills and abilities.
Each Scout progresses at his own pace as he meets each challenge. Rank advancement is one method used by Scout leaders to help youths fulfill the aims of Scouting: character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness.
