Faithingodboys Faith in God for Boys

Helps boys ages 8 through 11 live gospel principles, develop testimonies, build friendships, and prepare to receive the Aaronic Priesthood.

When properly carried out, Cub Scouting is a fun, home-centered activity program. Parental involvement and help is a key to success in this program (see Scouting Handbook, 3). The Church does not sponsor Scouting for boys younger than 8 (see Handbook 2, 11.5.3). Boys advance on their birthdays. No Scout-sponsored overnight camping should be planned for boys under age 11 (see Scouting Handbook, 3).

Taken from:

Church activities should be planned to fulfill gospel-centered purposes. To maintain a gospel focus in Scout activities, leaders use the Faith in God for Boys guidebook as one of their resources (see Handbook 2, 11.5.3). The Faith in God program should be coordinated with Scouting to lay a foundation that prepares a boy to keep his baptismal covenants, better serve his family, and receive the priesthood (see Scouting Handbook, 3).
