The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

History of Scouting
Sir Baden-Powell, an officer in the British Army, wrote a how-to book for army scouts in the late 1890's, before going to serve in the South African Boer Wars where he would earn much fame and acclaim. Upon his return he found that his book had become extremely popular amoung teenage boys who were using the book to start their own outdoor adventures. This inspired him to write another version of the book and to start the scouting movement for young men.
The program was highly successful because it provided opportunities for young boys to get away from home and to experience exciting adventures.

Cub Scout Program
Cub Scouting members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a den, usually a neighborhood group of six to eight boys. Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) meet weekly.
Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of a Cubmaster and pack committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the chartered organization.
