Welcome & Thank You for “Scouting Us Out!”
Cub Scouting is a broad and deep signature program of the Boy Scouts of America, and we know you’re busy. We at the New Birth of Freedom Council are here, and we can help you navigate!

Who Can Be A Cub Scout?
Boys in grade 1-5 and their loved ones including parents or other caring adults can get involved in Cub Scouts. Boys join local Cub Scout groups called packs. The pack you join is up to you. You can look for a pack chartered to an organization you support, or simply choose the one closest to your neighborhood. Or where your son’s friends are members … the choice is yours to make.
What do Scouts actually “do” long-term?
1) We help you to make the most of the limited time that you have with your children through quality, FUN, and well-planned activities.
2) Scouting’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
3) Scouting’s vision, ideally, prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
When & How
Packs and the smaller groups that make up each pack (called dens) meet 2-4 times per month depending on the pack. The pack that you choose will be able to tell you what night of the week they meet, how often, and the other activities they have planned.
The New Birth of Freedom Council’s service area includes six counties and six “districts” that cover areas not neccessarily defined by county.
Knowing this information will help you know which member of our staff to talk to about Cub Scouting in your area.
