If your son has completed kindergarten, Cub Scouting may be what you’re both looking for. In Cub Scouts, the boys have fun while experiencing nature, learning positive values and lifetime skills, and doing a lot of hands-on activities.

Three times a year, we have optional campouts at state parks or Boy Scout camps. We fish, hike, play, learn, and simply spend time together as families.
