Cub Scouts – Troop 355 (Grades K – 5)
Cub Scouting means “doing.”  Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have boys and girls doing things.  Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting — citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness.  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 the child’s sense of belonging.

Girl Scouts of the USA is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls — all girls — where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that well serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.
