Cub Scouting is NOT Cub Schooling ...

Posted on May 24 2016 - 9:49am

... if your Den and Pack meetings are like school, in a classroom or around a table, that's too bad ... because you're missing out on the fun and adventure -- yes, adventure -- of Cub Scout adventures that are built into the new Cub Scout handbooks and adventure plans.    Seriously ... lots of these Cub Scout Adventures are better and more easily done at Weekend Events like campouts or day hikes ending with an evening campfire … to have more fun, and get more family participation, Dens and Packs might do more weekend activities (invite others too ... they might join you!).  For places to go and things to do, see our Month by Month Activity Guide for easy options to set up your Family Fun Program every month, including dozens and dozens of other great places to go around Atlanta

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

Posted on May 20 2016 - 7:29pm

One way to Help Units in our District is through these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools (or use this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Troops, and this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Packs, with the same questions), adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  If you use these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!
