Waterloo Scouts are Second to None!
Scouting provides programs that build character, encourage mental and physical fitness, and teach the importance of cooperation, citizenship, and responsibility, and working as a team.
Whether it’s an outdoor adventure or learning about careers through hands-on experiences, Scouting helps you spend quality time with family, friends, and other caring adults while building self-confidence and living according to the Scout Oath and Law.
For kids in Kindergarten through Grade 5 and their families.
Cub Scouting is a year-round program that introduces children and their families to the world of Scouting. Boys or girls join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun! Cub Scouts’ parents, guardians, and families are vital to the success of each local Cub Scout group – or Pack. Packs may be boy-only, girl-only, or a combination.
Cub Scouts participate in programs that build character, encourage mental and physical fitness, and teach the importance of cooperation, citizenship, and responsibility. Adult, trained leaders within each local Cub Scouts Pack plan the yearly calendar – and on top of the weekly Pack meeting, Cub Scouts and their families participate in activities to help the Scout earn a different “rank” each year.
Programs and activities include:
Weekly pack meetings
Monthly field trips
Camping (accompanied by a parent)
The Pinewood Derby
Cub Scouts learn new things, discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop friendships. Along with having fun, Scouts are reminded to live according to the Scout Oath and Law: Do Their Best and Help Others.
Cub Scouts “Do your Best”
Scouts – boys or girls – go camping, hiking, and boating, explore their interests through more than 130 Merit Badges, and learn how to lead others while working toward Scouts BSA’s highest rank: Eagle. Scouts will imagine, plan, and carry out their own service projects, bringing to life the values of being Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, and Kind. Whether it’s a fun outdoor trip or a service project close to home, Scouts often learn the greatest lessons when something doesn’t go as planned – and figure out how to “get the job done” anyway.
For youth in Grades 6-12
