The Cub Scout 12 Core Values
We focus on building Strong Leaders with Strong Values.
Our meetings focus on teaching the 12 Cub Scout Core Values.
- September – Cooperation: Working together with others toward a common goal. Cub Scouts and their families cooperate to make the first pack meeting a memorable occasion for all, including the new families and boys.
- October - Responsibility: Fulfilling our duty to God, country, other people, and ourselves. Cub Scouts will understand that everyone is responsible for fire prevention, and learn about the importance of keeping their promises.
- November - Citizenship: Contributing service and showing responsibility to local, state, and national communities. Citizenship is an obligation we all share as Cub Scouts and leaders. One of the key components of being a good citizen is helping others.
- December - Respect: Showing regard for the worth of someone or something. Cub Scouts will show respect and appreciation for everyone who helps with the pack. They will be courteous and show good manners at den and pack meetings.
