What is Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts is an active program for children in kindergarten through fifth grade that encourages learning, friendship, and most of all fun! Youth learn by doing, and there is no end to the fun things that Cub Scouts do with their families, Cub Scout Packs, and at special events. Camp under the stars. Tie knots. Visit a police station. Shoot a bow and arrow. There is no limit to the fun things your Scout will do.
Building a strong foundation...with fun!
Kids want to join Scouting because it is fun. But you’ll love it for all the other benefits your child receives. Scouting teaches leadership and character. It builds confidence and social skills. It teaches the value of service and citizenship. And it brings families closer together.
Frequently Asked Questions
Scouting has fees for membership and activities. The annual membership fee is $60 and Boys Life magazine is an optional $12 plus tax per year. When joining, both of these fees are prorated by month. Other costs vary depending on the activities of your local Pack and typically range from $70 to $130 annually. One of the key values of Scouting is that Scouts should help earn their own way. That's why we offer multiple opportunities throughout the year for your Scout to earn the money needed to camp and participate in other activities.
We believe that every child should have the chance to be a Scout! Because of the generosity of local families, businesses and leaders, the Atlanta Area Council can offer assistance to support local families in need.
Cub Scouts is a family activity! All Packs are led by Youth Protection Trained volunteers from families just like yours!

Every volunteer leader is required to go through a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training process that ensures your child will be in a safe and fun program.
