Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed for boys and girls 1st through 5th grade.
The purpose of the program is to have fun while helping the boys develop character, their association with the community at large and their spiritual awareness. Boys are divided into Dens based on grade level or age. Each Den is led by adult volunteers who are position-specific trained and youth protection trained. Each Den has the ultimate goal to earn a rank in Cub Scouts; activities are directed to accomplish these advancements. 1st graders earn Tiger; 2nd graders earn Wolf; 3rd graders earn Bear, and; 4th and 5th graders work to earn Webelos and the Arrow of Light. A boy can join scouting at any level. There are also specific religious awards that can be achieved in the Pack through the Catholic Committee on Scouting such as the Parvuli Dei and Light of Christ.
Dens can meet at different times and places based on the families involved. However, most Dens meet on Monday night at the school cafeteria about every two weeks, unless they are doing special activities off site. Once parents obtain access to the Pack Calendar on the website, it is simple to see when Den and Pack meeting activities will occur.

During the year, the boys and parents are given opportunities to participate in fundraisers in which the scouts can earn money to pay for the program, including their cost of summer camps. Scholarships are available through the Family Friends of Scouting (Investment in Character Program) for boys in need of financial assistance.
