Cub Scouts

Cub Scouting at St. Mike’s is for parish boys in first through fifth grade. Cub Scouts provides a safe and comfortable environment where the boys have fun, make friends, develop character, learn and grow. Much of the fun happens right in the Den meetings (including just your son’s grade) and Pack meetings (including all cub scouts 1st – 5th grade and their families).

Boys can join at any time without needing to “catch up”. Scouting teaches a boy respect for God, his country, his home, and for other people. The ideals and activities of the Cub Scout contribute to the fullest appreciation of American citizenship. Scouting strengthens the ability to get along with other boys and respect other people.
