All in-person scouting activities are cancelled until further notice. This includes den and pack meetings as well as events.
Your Den Leaders will be in touch with you to recommend ways in which your child can continue the meet the requirements for advancement, such as doing challenges at home and participating in virtual den meetings.
Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. 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.
Who can join?
Cub Scouts are boys and girls aged 5 to 10. Any child showing an interest in scouting and who lives in the Geneva, Switzerland area (whether Geneva Canton or Vaud Canton or neighboring France) is welcome to join our Pack. You do not have to be an American to join. Please see our Pack Calendar to see when we meet. Our activities run during the academic year (September to June).
Aims and Methods
The mission of the Scouts BSA (formerly Boy Scouts of America) is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Scouts BSA has clearly defined objectives for its Cub Scout Program. It aims to develop :
- Moral strength – by focusing on personal qualities, values and outlook.
- Citizenship – by helping scouts develop a relationship to other people, to the society they live in and by understanding the government presiding over that society.
- Physical, mental and emotional fitness – by working toward a healthy body, by developing an ability to think & solve problems, by expressing self control, courage & self respect.
The methods of Cub Scouting are: living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform.
