In 1930, the Boy Scouts of America created a new opportunity called Cub Scouting for boys younger than Boy Scout age. A year-round, home-centered program used by chartered organizations, Cub Scouting emphasizes involvement between boys and their parents, adult leaders, and friends. In the multidimensional plan of the Boy Scouts of America, Cub Scouting is where it all begins.
Cub Scout Pack 24 is part of the Connecticut Rivers Council and has been in East Lyme, Connecticut since 1948. We strive to be active members in the community and hope you will join us. The American Legion is our Charter Organization. www.legion.org.
