Programs

The Piedmont Council programs help our youth, both boys and girls, realize what they’re truly capable of through fun, exciting activities. The life lessons learned in Scouting form a foundation to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles in life.

Piedmont Scouting consistently ranks as one of the top councils nationwide. Our programs deliver life skills building experiences, youth leadership opportunities and positive relationships with caring adult mentors.

Scouting Programs

What distinguishes Scouting from other youth activities and keeps our programs relevant is that youth learn to do things themselves and take an active role in leading their programs. Further, Scouting programs are inclusive and collaborative rather than competitive.

Cub Scouts

(K – 5th grade; Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos)
Cub Scouts are big time fun. Whether it’s setting up a tent, shooting homemade rockets, cooking over a campfire, building a Pinewood Derby car or doing community service work, Cub Scouts learn the best possible way — by doing! Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on.
