About Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts is the first opportunity for girls and boys to join a scouting program in our organization. Starting in Kindergarten and going through Grade 5, youth ages 6-11 can begin learning new skills, enjoying outdoor adventures and building their character through the Potawatomi Area Council Cub Scout program in Waukesha, WI. We help create the building blocks for youth to become compassionate leaders in our communities.


The Cub Scout program focuses on advancement by completing activities to earn each badge of rank. Cub Scouts learn new skills and evolve their morals while building their self-confidence and esteem. Advancement challenges begin in kindergarten to earn the Lion rank and continue through 5th grade and the Arrow of Light rank. 


Cub Scouts earn adventure loops or pins for each badge of rank. Adventures are designed to be educational and fun for our K-5th graders, enabling them to achieve new experiences. Adventures including a variety of topics from hiking, first aid and sports to service, science and citizenship.


Beyond badge of rank, Cub Scouts can earn awards in many areas that go above and beyond basic scouting. In each rank, awards are available in a variety of specialty areas from world conservation and cyber-chip to outdoor activities and interpreter strip.
