A Family Program

Family involvement is essential to Cub Scouting's success. When we talk about "family" in Cub Scouting, we're sensitive to the realities of present-day families. Many Cub Scouts do not come from traditional two-parent homes. Some boys live with a single parent or with other relatives or guardians. Cub Scouting considers a boy's family to be the people with whom he lives.

Family Activities
As a program for the entire family, Cub Scouting can help families teach their children a wholesome system of values and beliefs while building and strengthening relationships among family members.

Your Role as a Parent
Cub Scouting helps parents and sons grow closer, and your involvement as a parent of a Cub Scout is vital.

Becoming a Leader
Volunteer leaders support Cub Scouting by serving in many roles, and often find great satisfaction in lending their support to youth and the community.

The BSA Family Award
The BSA Family Award program offers activities to help strengthen all families—whether two-parent, single-parent, or nontraditional.
