Cub Scouts

The Old Hickory Council Cub Scouting program encompasses the largest part of the council's Scouts and Scouters. The council has over 115 packs in 6 districts. That's a lot of Cub Scouts!


Aims and Methods

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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. There are four aims of Scouting: citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership. 

The methods of Cub Scouting are: living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform. Learn More


Benefits

Scouting works! Over the past several years Scouting has partnered with colleges, universities, and foundations to study the impact of the program. Scouting activities contribute to the academic development of the children who participate. In the elementary grades, the program is built around a series of theme-based explorations. As a Cub Scout advances, the requirements get more challenging, to match the new skills and abilities they have learned. 


How Often Do Cub Scouts Meet?

Cub Scouts (boys and girls enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grades - ages 5-10) usually meet 2 to 3 times a month during the school year in small groups (5 to 10 youth) called dens. Den Meetings are single-gender groups and are packed with fun, games, and great activities that can all be used to earn rank and activity badges.

Once a month all the dens gather at a central location for a gathering called a Pack Meeting. Pack Meetings are where the dens can show off the skills they have learned over the last month. Meetings are often full of cheers, songs, and skits. The highlight of the Pack Meeting is, of course, the award ceremony where the Pack leader, called a Cubmaster, helps the Den Leaders present the Scouts with their latest ranks and activity badges.
