Things Cub Scouts Do

Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model cars, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means "doing."

Cub Scout Camping
Learn to live in the outdoors. Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world.

Outings and Field Trips
Cub Scouts have many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation activities, and outdoor games.

Blue and Gold Banquets
In February, when Scouting celebrates its "birthday," packs across the country hold blue and gold banquets. In nearly all packs, the banquet is a very special event.

Cub Scout Derbies
Race a model car, sailboat, or miniature rocket in a Cub Scout derby—the pinewood derby, raingutter regatta, or space derby.

Pinewood Derby Car Designer
Need help finding a cool design for your pinewood derby car? This interactive feature will help you pick a design and print out templates for building it.

Service Projects
Doing service projects is one way for Cub Scouts to keep their promise "to help other people."
