The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) supports Cub Scouting. In fact, the church is the BSA's largest chartered organization with over 10,000 Cub Scout packs across the country.
According to the Scouting Handbook for Church Units
in the United States, “Scouting can help young men and boys enhance close relationships with their families and the Church while developing strong and desirable traits of character, citizenship, and physical and mental fitness.”
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has its own activity program, Faith in God, designed for children ages 8 through 11. If a child completes all of the requirements, they will earn the LDS Faith in God award.
There are many Cub Scouting activities that also fulfill requirements in the Faith in God program. This is especially true with the emphasis on duty to God in the 2015 Cub Scout adventure program.
To ensure that the boys are getting proper credit for their activities, Annaleis Smith and the Utah National Parks Cub Scout Task Force created a document listing the possible correlations between the two programs. They kindly agreed to let me share it with you.
