Cub Scout Promise
Your Son, Cub Scouting and You
As a parent, you want your son to grow up to be a person of worth, who is a self-reliant, dependable, and caring individual. As your son moves from Tiger Cubs through Webelos, you will find that Scouting has these same goals in mind for him. Since 1910, Scouting has been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, developing good citizenship, enhancing physical fitness, and building self-esteem and ethical values in youth.
Imagine a program that can help your son learn, grow, and mature while he is having fun. There are activities in which you can participate together with the rest of your family and get to know each other even better. This is exactly what Scouting is. Every activity gives you and your son the chance to discover and share together.
What does your son learn in Scouting? Well, it is a lot more than crafts, games, and outdoor skills. All of the Cub Scout program is carefully designed to teach your son something he will use throughout his life. Every activity is specifically designed for your son's age, development, and personal needs. Here are just of few of the things your son will gain though Cub Scouts:
• A feeling of belonging to a positive and fun group of boys and caring adult.
• New social skills that will help him get along with others.
• Develop new mental skills from reading and writing to planning and organizing.
• A greater understanding of other people and the world around him.
• A system of values that will help him grow and make good decisions.
• A concern and caring for people, and opportunities to help others.
• Self-confidence and stronger self-esteem
In a society where your son is often taught that winning is everything, Cub Scouts teaches him to 'do his best' and be helpful to others as expressed in the Cub Scout Promise. These values help your son make good decisions throughout his lifetime and give him confidence as he becomes an adult leader of tomorrow.
With all the negative influences in today's society, Scouting provides your son with a positive peer group and a program that is fun and adventurous and helps him to 'be prepared' to shape his own future. And the best thing about it all is that you do, learn and experience the program along with your son, making it all the more special and valuable through your involvementin Cub Scouts with him!
