Enjoy a Good Book this Weekend ... Maybe a New Cub Scout Handbook or Den Leader Guide??

Posted on Apr 24 2015 - 1:14pm

For those not Camping with the OA here, or with Troops here or here or here, or just doing fun things somewhere that we've heard about or that you're planning, find out what's new in the Cub Scout Program by picking up a Tiger, Wolf, Bear and/or Webelos Handbook, and/or the Den Leader Guides for each from one of our Scout Shops  (yes, they are selling ... call ahead to be sure of inventory to be safe) or the one in Griffin.  End of year hint:  why yes, a Den Leader Guide is a lovely "thank you" gift from a Pack to your current Den Leaders and Assistants ... what a nice way to thank them at the end of the year (maybe with "next year's rank Guide"?).   Spoiler Alert:  first glance page flip review of the Den Leader Guides is that (1) these certainly provide more "substance" for meetings than most of the existing Den Meeting Plans in the Den & Pack Meeting Resource Guide (and many more "options" for leaders to deliver the program in a way comfortable to them), (2) except for the Rank Adventure Listings and Meeting Plans tied to those Rank Adventures (and a two page explanation of Webelos in that guide), the 30 page Intro and even larger Appendix of Resources in each Leader Guide are identical (so the thifty might buy one, and look for the online plans), and (3) with plenty of Den Meeting program ideas in the Meeting Plans, Dens can have lots of meetings to complete 7 Adventures or more, but many many Adventures are best done on Den Outings, Pack Activities like hiking and camping, and other fun events, and there are ways to condense the number of meetings if needed.  Look for more training on this, and on plans for dens of mixed rank ... soon.  One way or another, the Den Leader Guide material will be online to make it easier for leaders and parents to deliver the program.  

Cub Twilight Camp Registration is LIVE for Youth and Volunteers ... Share with Your Cub Families!

Posted on Apr 23 2015 - 4:12pm

Click Cub Twilight Camp Registration for June 15-19 to register youth to attend.  This is an individual registration, not a "Pack" registration, so please share with your Pack Families.  And their friends and kindergarten families ... because kindergarten boys can be Tiger Cubs when school ends.  For those Boy Scouts and Volunteers who do not have a Cub Scout attending camp, register at this Not a Parent Twilight Camp Volunteer Registration Page.

Training Resources ... new for 2015

Posted on Apr 23 2015 - 4:03pm

New 2015 Course Guides for Cubmasters (and Assistants), Den Leaders (and Assistants) and  Pack Committee Members are found on this BSA Adult Training site for Trainers who want to Train adult leaders.  More information is at our Leader Training page.  Also, online training for den leaders, Cubmasters, committee chairs/members and charter organization representatives is being updated.  The new training will be divided into shorter, more targeted modules so leaders can get the training they need, in the order they want, any time they need it.  The new training is organized into time-based sections:  the learning needed prior to the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and training needed to be considered position-specific “trained".   The new training will be implemented in conjunction with BSA’s new Learning Management System.  The anticipated timing for launching this new tool is June 30, 2015.  

How Is Your Unit Doing ... How Can We Help?

Posted on Apr 20 2015 - 2:34pm

One way to Help Units in our District is through the attached Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  Feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!
