The scouting program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Children meet typically once a month for a den meeting (based on grade) and for a pack meeting (all kids, grades K-5.) Throughout the year there are exciting overnight outings (accompanied by parents) at places like the Museum of Science, Battleship Cove, and Nobscot Reservation. Everyone works on age-appropriate achievements at home to earn badges and pins, which are awarded at pack meetings.
