Scout Home base is open for everyone who is interested in participating in Scouting. Learn about the basics of the two programs we are currently supporting through the Scout Home Base programs
Cub Scouting is a fun adventure for families with children in kindergarten through 5th grade. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.
