The Cub Scouts, which may be considered a junior organization of Boy Scouts of America, was first organized in Spencer October 6, 1944. District 6 (Ojibwa) Pack 687 of Sarrjoset Council has been sponsored from time to time by the Spencer Lions Club, American Legion, Spencer Junior Woman's Club, Spencer P.T.A. and Spencer Jaycees.
Cub Scouts join the Pack at age eight and become Webelos at age 10 and are ready to become Boy Scouts at age 11. The Pack is divided into dens of six to eight boys; the Cub Scouts led by mothers, and Webelos dens led by fathers. In the separate dens boys learn various crafts, games, songs, skits, magic tricks and ways to help one another. The important objectives of scouting are family oriented-the building of comradeship between parents and boys, leaders and friends, and teaching them to be mindful of God and their country.
