CUB SCOUTING IS FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY! Cub Scout-age boys and girls benefit developmentally from belonging to a group of youth their own age. Through this sense of belonging, youth build self-esteem and learn to get along with others. … But we know that youth do not join Cub Scouting just to get their character built. Youth join because it is fun.
Cub Scouting is for youth Kindergarten through fifth grades, or 5 to 10 years of age. Children who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade, can no longer join Cub Scouting, but they may be eligible to join the Boy Scouting or Venturing program.
