Becoming a Scout

Scouting

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Pack 306

The Scouting program is divided into Councils by geographic region.  Councils are then divided into local Districts and individual Units.  Rutland’s Pack 306 is part of the Qunisigamond District of the Mohegan Council – covering more than 30 communities in central Massachusetts.

Cub Scouts

The Cub Scouts were created by the Boy Scouts of America in 1930 for kids younger than Boy Scouting age.  Cub Scouts are grouped into dens by age and grade level.

  • Lions Cubs- Kindergarten (New)
  • Tiger Cubs – Grade 1
  • Wolf Cubs – Grade 2
  • Bear Cubs – Grade 3
  • Webelos – Grade 4
  • Arrow of Light – Grade 5

Being a Cub Scout means being a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It’s all about the person Cub Scouts are and the person they will become.

Uniforms, Advancement, Awards, and Recognitions

Cub Scouts can earn more than 65 awards.  Whether it’s a rank advancement, Sports or Academics belt loop and pin, or one of the many other individual awards, there is plenty for Cub Scouts to set their sights on.
