Boy Scouts of America invites boys and girls to join Cub Scouts

Press release from Boy Scouts of America:

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is now inviting both boys and girls to join the Cub Scouts (ages 5-10). With the school year upon us, we welcome all families to participate in the Cub Scouts, a program renowned for character-building fun and adventure. Through adventures big and small, Scouting embraces the outdoors and help communities through service projects, STEM development, and building confidence with our wide range of activities.

“The Daniel Boone Council, BSA is excited to welcome both boys and girls into Cub Scouting,” says Joshua Christ, CEO. “After all, the values of Scouting – being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent – are relevant and important for both boys and girls.”

Cub Scout information and joining events will be hosted over the next few weeks throughout Western North Carolina, including most area Elementary Schools.
