We serve youth in Maineville, Ohio and the surrounding area. The Cub Scout program is open to children grades K-5. Our goal is to help children grow up to be dependable, enthusiastic and determined; Scouts grow and learn through experiences that involve decisions and discoveries for themselves. The program is carried out through the ideals of Cub Scouts that support the aim of helping each Scout develop to their fullest potential through individual and group experiences.

Volunteers would be asked to help with anything from track set up, car weigh-ins, decorations, as well as helping us run the event the day of. Please see the Pinewood Derby page for further information on the event.

We are looking for 4 or 5 volunteers to help us find a location, plan the meal, layout the agenda for the event inclusive of some form of entertainment, decorations, communications to the Pack, and so forth.
