CUB SCOUTS AT PHORMS
What is Cub Scouts?Scouting promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land. Youll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned. Being a Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Scouting is more than something to do. It's all about the boy youareand the person you willbecome.
