Moove In Self Storage on Stone Mill Road partners with local Cub Scouts Pack 2. Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America. However, they are entirely different programs. Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys.

Cub Scouts is a year-round program designed for boys in first through fifth grade. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development, citizenship training and physical fitness. Cub Scouting helps parents become even better moms and dads.

While encouraging boys to begin the program at the end of their Kindergarten year, they can become a Cub Scout at any time during their elementary school years:

  • Boys are grouped by grade levels.
  • Boys are organized in teams (or dens) of 6-8 boys.
  • The Cub Scouts program offers both group and at-home activities.
  • Cub Scouts may build a pinewood derby car and race it on the track, build a sailboat or trimaran and race it in the raingutter regatta, or build a spaceship and race it to the stars in the pack space derby.
  • Cub Scouts earn awards as they complete an accomplishment or learn a new skill.

cub scoutsFostering friendship among boys and families is what the Cub Scouts are all about. Cub Scout dens all gather monthly for a big family event called a pack meeting. (To understand dens and packs, think of a wolf pack and the smaller family sized den groups that make up the pack.) At pack meetings, boys participate in fun games and educational activities. Leaders and parents recognize boys for their recent achievements. The pack runs under the direction of a Cubmaster, den leaders and a pack committee, typically comprised of parents.

Cub Scout Pack 2 benefits from a storage unit at Moove In Self Storage on Stone Mill Road where they store their scouting supplies. We are always happy to support local community groups like the cub scouts and boy scouts.
