Q: When can we join Cub Scouts?
A: Anytime! Each year in the Fall we have a Night to Join Scouting; however, you can join in the fun at anytime! Just contact a leader and come to the den meetings, pack meetings, and other special events. To be a Lion Cub, you must be turning 5 years of age by June (the end of the school year), and be in the kindergarten.
Q: Where should we start?
A: All Cub Scouts MUST earn the Bobcat badge first. You should obtain a Cub Scout field manual for your Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos scout. This booklet is MOST helpful and has all the information you and your Cub Scout need to go through the achievement program.
