Boy & Cub Scouts

Gaining a broad range of skills for life

Dalat International School offers Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts for young men in grades K-12. Affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America through the Far East Council, Scouting gives students multiple opportunities to develop their character, leadership skills, and sense of adventure.

Scouts expand their horizons and stretch their abilities, earning badges by working on a wide variety of special activities and skills during club time. Our core of trained and committed parent-leaders bring their expertise and experiences to teach the Scouts in a variety of fun ways. Near the conclusion of each semester, both Boy and Cub Scouts host a Court of Honor ceremony in which Scouts receive recognition for the awards they have earned.

Scouting is a year-long commitment. Membership dues are paid at the beginning of each calendar year. Scouts are expected to purchase basic items of the uniform and the handbook, as well as for awards as they are earned. Parents are encouraged to be active in the Scout troop, and even required in the case of our youngest Cub Scouts.
