Meaningful, adventure-based program for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Hiking to Manoa Falls with your friends. Experimenting with a flight simulator at the U.S. Pacific Command. Taking a private, guided tour of the Makapuu Lighthouse. Aloha Council Cub Scouts, alongside their parents, siblings, friends, and adult volunteers do activities like these, and much more, every month.
Everyone is welcome in Cub Scouts and no Scouting background is necessary. You can join at any time of the year and can choose a Cub Scout Pack that is near your home, school, or any other location convenient for you and your family.
Cub Scouts is one of the iconic programs of the Boy Scouts of America and one of the most popular children’s activities in the United States. A family- and home-centered learning and achievement program, children in kindergarten through fifth grade develop life and leadership skills and learn what it means to be a kind, caring, and productive member of our island communities. For more than 90 years, we have been helping Cub Scouts build a strong foundation for academic, athletic, and personal excellence.
The whole ohana—moms, dads, brothers, sisters, cousins, grandparents and other extended family members—are welcome and encouraged to participate in Cub Scout activities right alongside the young Scouts.
The program runs throughout the year and meets in communities from Hilo to Hanalei, from Pago Pago to Hagatna. Cub Scout Packs typically meet twice per month and are led by a trained volunteer Cubmaster.
A recent snapshot of activities from a Hawaii Kai Cub Scout Pack include:
• Sleepover at the Expedition: Dinosaur Exhibit at Bishop Museum
• Fishing Derby
• Twilight Tour of the Honolulu Zoo
• CPR training for kids
• Service project at Keawawa Wetlands
• Marching in the Hawaii Kai Keiki Kalikimaka Parade
“I love Cub Scouts!!! I get to do things I’ve never done before! For example, I learned how to use a flint and steel, I jumped off a diving board, and I found new friends! Even though those are fun, my favorite is going to camp!!! You get to do a whole lot of things you’ve never done before!!!” – Anuhea, Cub Scout Pack 115.
How it Works
Cub Scouts are members of a small, gender-specific group known as a “Den.” Boys join Dens with other boys and girls join Dens with other girls. Together, a Den forms a “Pack,” which is chartered by an organization such as a school, church, or other community group. The program is not co-educational and maintains the benefits of a single-gender experience.
Cub Scout Packs are available throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. To find a Pack near you, click here.
