BOY SCOUTS/CUB SCOUTS

  • Cub Scouts -  Cub Scouting (1st to 5th grades) activities encourage character development, physical coordination, family unity, and enthusiasm for learning. Cub Scouting helps boys develop a sense of teamwork, achievement, self-confidence, and respect for others. Learning to master new skills helps the Cub Scout realize his own abilities and discover that his can-do attitude is the first sign of success in any endeavor. In fact, that’s the Cub Scout motto: Do Your Best.
  • Boy Scouts - Boy Scouting (late fifth grade through 17 years old) encourages boys to expand and test their personal initiative, courage, and resourcefulness. Boy Scouts learn some of life’s more serious lessons while having fun. Boys learn about important values, such as helping oneself by helping others and honoring the basic rights of others. Boy Scouting’s active learning experiences include hiking, camping, and other outdoor expeditions; competitive individual and team sports activities; and community or religious service projects. Many Boy Scouts first practice basic leadership, self-government, and citizenship skills during regular troop meetings and campouts. • Amount of volunteer time varies based on your desired level of commitment • Administrative and organizational support is welcome • Virtus certification required • All training provided by the Ozark Trails Boy Scout Council
