Cub Scouts! Do Your Best! Do Your Best!

Benefits of Cub Scouting

As a worldwide brotherhood, Scouting is unique. It is based on the principles of loving and serving God, of human dignity and the rights of individuals, and of recognizing the obligation of members to develop and use their potential. It is a movement dedicated to bringing out the best in people. Cub Scouting doesn’t emphasize winning as an end result, but rather the far more demanding task of doing one’s best.

When Scouting can help nurture courage and kindness and allow boys to play, to laugh, to develop their imaginations, and to express their feelings, then we will have helped them grow. We want boys to become useful and stable individuals who are aware of their own potential. Helping a boy to learn the value of his own worth is the greatest gift we can give him.

Monthly Focus on the Scout Law


In the Scout Law we say, “A Scout is brave.” But what does that mean to you?
Usually we think of bravery as overcoming fear to take some action that saves a life of helps someone in some way. Most of the time we’re talking about overcoming fear of physical harm to ourselves.
But there’s another kind of bravery. It’s bravery to overcome the fear of ridicule from our friends. It’s the courage that’s required to do what you know is right, even if your friends make fun of you. It may even be tougher than being brave in a crisis because you usually have more time to think about it.
We all know it’s sometimes hard to act right when everybody is urging you to do something you know is wrong. It takes a courageous Scout – or man – to withstand the pressure from friends.
It’s not easy – but it’s the mark of a good Scout. Let’s try to do our best to be brave in every situation – the emergency and the pressure from friends.
