 Cub Scouting

Boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade can experience the adventure of Cub Scouting. Cub Scouting means "doing" and the program is designed around active involvement. Hands-on activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting: citizenship training, character development and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. (Youth must be at least five years old and have started kindergarten to register.)

 Scouts, BSA (Currently Boy Scouts until 2/1/2019)

Increasing responsibility, leadership experiences, camping, outdoor activities, service projects and a challenging, individualized advancement program mentored by adult volunteers are key elements of Scouting. Weekly meetings are led and run by the Scouts, with adult guidance. Members are introduced to more than 100 hobby and career choices through merit badges and goal setting/achievement in an awards program that culminates in the rank of Eagle Scout. Starting February 1, 2019, girls also will have the opportunity to be a member of Scouts BSA.

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are age 14, or age 13 and completed the 8th grade, up to age 21. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

 Sea Scouting

Sea Scouts is a specialized segment of the Venturing program, which was organized to address members' boating skills and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage.
