CUB SCOUTS

Cub Scouting is a fun-filled, family friendly program that helps students (boys AND girls) in Kindergarten through 5th grade go places and do things they never thought were possible! From building a castle out of recycled materials to turning a block of wood into a race car; Scouts go on amazing adventures while learning new skills, making friends, helping others, and building self-esteem! We are very service focused, where even a hike becomes a service project as we clean up the trails :)

Boys and girls enrolling in Kindergarten (Lions) through 5th grade (Webelos) and their families are welcome to come check us out! All together we make Family Cub Scout Pack 316! If you have any questions or would like to sign-up, please contact Katrina Keilman at 219-718-2613 or smiley762003@yahoo.com.
