What is Cub Scouting? Fun and Adventure.

Posted on Aug 25 2015 - 7:01pm

If it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe ... then it's Cub Scouting!  It's really that simple, but even better, the new Cub Scout advancement program is more engaging, more outdoors, more active, more fun. The new Den Leader Guide material is available online to make it easier for leaders and parents to deliver the program.  And our Cub Scout Meeting Plans page gives you some guidance about those plans (including, for those who find "in room" weekly or every other weekly meetings difficult to deliver, ideas about how to take it outside and share the lead).  We're also starting to develop other resources like Den Meeting Plans for Mixed Dens (adapted from those official Guides so that when your start-up 6 kid den of 3 Tigers and 3 Wolves turns into 14 kids, 7 at each rank, you can seamlessly split and stay "in the leader guides").  

Sign Up Nights? I see my Pack Number ... What Do I Do?

Posted on Aug 18 2015 - 1:11pm

When you see a Sign Up Night scheduled for your Pack Number, feel free to show up.  Because if you like Cub Scouting Adventure and you're thinking "gee, it would be good to have more leaders and families in our Pack", then ... show up at Sign Up Night and talk to kids and families to help them realize they should join with you and enjoy Cub Scouting Adventure.  Check with your Pack Leaders about how to help (Pack Leaders, coordinate with Brandon.Dobbins@scouting.org or Daniel.DeGraffenreid@scouting.org to be sure you're in sync), but it is a huge "plus" if current Cub Scout families show up for "peer to peer" recruiting -- it's a fact: moms trust other moms, dads trust other dads, kids trust other kids.  Come on out!  Former families too ... if you've "crossed over" to Boy Scouting, you can tell "the next generation" about how Cub Scouting made a difference.
