Things Cub Scouting do?
The Scouting program is delivered through local civic, faith-based, and educational institutions called chartered organizations, which operate Scouting units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.
How Cub Scouting Works?
Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of the full family. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children.

Taking Proper care of the Uniform
A Cub Scout Uniform is the pride of every Cub Scout and so you should look after it properly to make it last longer. This involves keeping it clean and neatly folded when not in use. You should wear it only on proper occassions like Parade and Flag Ceremonies. When in camp at other times, Camp dress or working clothes should be worn. Whenever a button falls off or is about to fall off immediately sew on another or fix up the falling one.
