Our membership includes strong representation from Matthewson  Elementary School and neighborhoods throughout the center of Milford, CT.

About Cub Scouts


Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7 - 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing). We have provided some information here, but you may also wish to visit Scouting.org for more information.

Purposes of Cub


The Cub Scouting program has 10 purposes related to the overall mission of the Boy Scouts of America—to build character, learn citizenship, and develop personal fitness:

How often do we meet?

Groups of 5-10 boys (of the same age/grade level) called Dens meet at least once a month, while our more active Dens meet twice monthly. The ranks of cub scouting begin with Tiger Cubs (first-graders), then progress to Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders). Den meetings are often held at a scout’s home, or at the school. Be sure to visit the individual Den pages forr specifics on meeting times and other Den related information.

Once a month, all of the Dens and family members gather for a Pack meeting at Harborside Middle School under the direction of the Cubmaster and Pack Committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the chartered organization. There are other Pack sponsored events and meetings. For example, our Pack makes an effort to participate in local parades for St Patrick's Day, Food Bank, and does service projects throughout the year as well.

Who Pays For It?

Groups responsible for supporting Cub Scouting are the boys and their parents, the pack, the chartered organization, and the community. Packs also obtain income by working on approved money-earning projects like our annual popcorn sales.  This financial support provides leadership training, outdoor programs, council service centers and other facilities, and professional service for units.

Cub Scout Ideals

Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy’s sense of belonging:

Cub Scout Promise

I, (name), promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack.

Law of the Pack

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
 The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

Cub Scout Motto

Do Your Best.


The Cub Scouting colors are blue and gold. They have a special meaning, which will help boys see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals: The BLUE stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above; and The GOLD stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness.

Scout Behavior

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Law. In an effort to make Pack 7 the best it can be, the leaders and the Pack Committee have decided to align our Pack.s Code of Behavior with the Boy Scouts of America.s Scout Law.

Scout Law:

A Scout is: Trustworthy - Loyal - Helpful - Friendly - Courteous - Kind - Obedient - Cheerful - Thrifty - Brave - Clean - Reverent
In Pack 7, we interpret this law to mean, during Pack Meetings, Cub Scouts and their families are:
Parents, please help your son to emulate these qualities. When all of the adults in our Pack hold the same high standards for our boys, we will all benefit and get the most out of this great opportunity, the Cub Scouts.
