Understanding Cub Scout Age Boys- 


To understand where we want them to go, we need to understand where they are. The Cub Scout years are a time of rapid development for young boys, falling between the total dependence of early childhood and the relative independence of early adolescence.
Cub Scout–age boys are becoming more competent, and they need to be able to demonstrate what they can do— whether it’s climbing fences, performing stunts on their bikes or skateboards, or taking dares.
