Help For Dens That Don't Have Den Leaders Yet ...

Posted on Sep 23 2016 - 1:08pm

Following up on the New Cub Scout Adventure Plans for Bobcats and Early Den Meetings (filling a gap in the Den Leader Guides for the new Cub Scout Program), and anticipating successful Sign Up Nights that bring you more Youth Signups than you have Den Leaders to run den programs, we bring you a Cub Scout Adventure Plans resource page called "Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet" (or "Help! We don't have Den Leaders Yet ... What do we Do?"). 

What do you do?  Well, read the Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet page, because you don't want to dive into den meetings until you're really ready, with enough Den Leaders and Assistants, engaged and ready to go, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10).  

But ... you do have a great option for excellent Cub Scout Program.  The answer is do Easy Fun Family Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Adventures. 

This is in line with our message: "WARNING TO PACKS:  if you don't have enough Den Leaders, engaged and ready to go with enough helpers, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10), please do not attempt to have Den Meetings for those Dens!!!!  Instead, do Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Meetings".

As families have fun at the Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, you have a chance to get Den Leaders to emerge, for Assistants to step up, for Parents to agree to help and lead parts of the Den program, and for this parent / child program to reach success.

One More for the Road ... A Final Cub Leader Training Class for the ATL from Southern Crescent

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 5:43pm

Atlanta's Hottest Pack Leadership Team Training Class is Saturday, October 15 at Woodward.  Sign up in that link, or here.  

Based on past performances, this Cub Scout Leader Training Class has everything:  flying discs, latex party games, dyspnea, stockholm syndrome, club-goers chanting “hooah”, permission slips, light shows, indelible markers, repeat-after-me songs, baubles and geegaws.  

Bottom line:  Trained Leaders and Parents have more fun, and Children of Trained Leaders and Parents make better decisions about their parent's Assisted Living and Nursing Home care.   So now is the time to go!

Tick Tock ... Don't Forget ... Youth Protection Must Be Updated Every Two Years.

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 2:49pm

Based on the Training Manager database at https://my.scouting.org/, just about every Pack, Troop and Crew has somebody who will need to get Youth Protection Training updated during this fall's Unit Recharter cycle -- and that means if your YPT will expire by March 1 of next year ... update it now, thanks, you're welcome!  See the District and Unit by Unit list of YPT Expirations here.  To take or re-take Youth Protection Training, access your profile at https://my.scouting.org/, and click the box that has "New to Scouting / Click hear to Take Training" above the Youth Protection Begins with You" logo.  That will load, and give you the Youth Proction Options for you (for most of us in Troops and Packs, it will be plain Youth Protection Training, but for Crews you may need Venturing Youth Protection Training), or in the Upper Left Corner click Menu, My Dashboard, which will take you to My Training.  Do not try to find Youth Protection Training in the "Learn Center".  We don't think it is found there. 

And be sure that your profile shows your BSA Member ID Number and shows you in the Atlanta Area Council (when you Login, click Menu in the upper left, click Legacy Tools in the drop down list, and in the new list click "Manage Member ID" ... if you are not sure what your BSA Member ID Number is, email the Webmaster).

If you try to put a BSA ID Number into your "Manage Member ID" and it won't let you, you probably have two "profiles" in https://my.scouting.org/, and likely the other one has your BSA Number.  If you can't access and use that, see this Announcement about how the National BSA IT Help Desk will merge your profiles if you work with them, and/or see this My.Scouting Troubleshooting Guide for
