What's in the "More Help For Leaders" page?

Posted on Nov 14 2017 - 9:55am

Well, more help for Leaders and Parents putting on the Scouting Program for our Youth.  Help like:

  • Finances.  See our Unit Finances page for information about fundraising and other finance resources. 
  • Scoutreach Assistance.  The Atlanta Area Council has financial aid and other resources described on the ScoutReach Resources page.
  • Recruiting.  See our Recruiting Tools page for great ideas to help you recruit new families.
  • Activity Ideas.  Want ideas about Pack or Troop Activities ... see our Month by Month Activity Ideas page, and see what our Units are Doing.
  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventuresnot merely "meetings") are very critical ... we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources.
  • Service Projects.  Most every Unit does Service Projects, and that page has ideas.
  • Journey to Excellence Recognition.  Some Units use the Journey to Excellence plan to improve.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their "home" units are Commissioners ... see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.
  • On Line News.  We share links to Boys Life & Scouting Magazines and more, like http://scoutingwire.org/.
  • Contacts.  Contact District Leaders and Adults in other units through our Roster.  Key leaders are also listed in the attachment at our About Scouting & How to Join page.
  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth. See Leader Training for ways to become trained and have more fun.
  • Uniforms and Gear.  Many Scouts and Units need help with uniforms and gear, and so our Uniform + Gear Bank page has a plan for donating and distributing uniforms and gear.
  • Advancement.  See our Advancement page for resources on Boy Scout and Cub Scout rank advancement and awards.

Cub Scouts is not Cub SCHOOL ... Get Out, Get Active!

Posted on Nov 14 2017 - 9:54am

... if you plan Den and Pack meetings like school time, 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 ... and by families! … 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

Program Help for Parents and Cub Scout Leaders: Bobcat Adventure Plans

Posted on Nov 14 2017 - 9:53am

Did you know ... our page called "Getting Started: Plans for First Meetings + Bobcat Rank" includes some "Bobcat Adventure Plans" to help parents and leaders get their Scouts to the Bobcat Rank (and let returning Scouts brush up on that and help their new Scout friends).   Those should have been in the Den Leader Guides, but were left out ... but they are here for you to use!  You can do these as part of "out and about" activities, not just in "den meetings".
