What do we do in Cub Scouts?

Cub Scout Activities

Den Meetings: 
Your son will meet weekly or bi-weekly with a group of other boys who are in his grade. This provides him a chance to make new friends and do new activities with a close group of friends.

Pack Meetings:
This is a meeting for all Cub Scouts and parents to get to gather to recognize their sons for the achievements they have accomplished during each month. Skits, songs and plays are just a few activities during a Pack meeting.

Pinewood Derby Races:
Pack competition where the Cub Scout makes a racing car for competition.

Day Camp:
Weekday camping at various city parks during the summer. Action oriented. Involves games, crafts, skills, nature, archery and, at some locations, BB gun instruction.

Tiger Cub Zoo Day:
First activity for new Tiger Cubs (1st grade) and their Tiger Partner (parent) in October.  A half-day activity at Como Zoo.

Blue & Gold Banquet:
Large pack meeting in February where families come together to celebrate the birthday of the Cub Scout program. Most will hold a potluck, an ice cream and cake social or cater food for the event. Advancement programs and skits are the main attraction of the night.

Fun With Son:
A Friday-Saturday camping overnight for the Cub Scout and his mom, dad or guardian to experience camping as a Cub Scout for the first time. Seven weekends are available during June and July and are held at Rum River Scout Camp near Anoka.

Scouting For Food: 
A service project held on the last weekend of April.   Over 20,000 Scouts collect 530,000 pounds of food for area food shelves. Largest national service project for the Boy Scouts of America.

The web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
