Adventure Resource Pages and Hiketober: Scouting on Demand and Beyond!

Posted on Oct 20 2020 - 4:56pm

With the completion of “Family Led Plans” for every Cub Scout Adventure plus Bobcat – yes, 97(!) in all – here is an update about the Adventure by Adventure resources here in the Atlanta Area Council.

https://www.southfultonscouting.com/node/3163 is a page that has Cub Scout Adventure resources for all Adventures – Rank by Rank pages, plus Adventure by Adventure pages.  The Rank and Adventure pages are also reachable through the AAC Cub Scout Advancement page at https://www.atlantabsa.org/CubScoutAdvance, and the Scouting on Demand page at https://www.atlantabsa.org/ScoutingOnDemand.  

Each of those Adventure pages has the following: 

1)      Family-Led Plans for every Adventure -- plans that streamline and simplify doing each Adventure for parents, either from home or in a den group setting.

2)      Videos and other resources to help both leaders and parents see how to do the Adventure have the knowledge needed.  This includes the recent Tips and Tricks videos (English and Spanish) and much more.

3)      The full multi-meeting den meeting plans from the applicable BSA Den Leader Guide.

The idea behind these Adventure by Adventure resource pages is to provide Adventure resources in a format easily shareable with parents.  The hope is that these resources will bring parents closer to the program as leaders of their Scouts, whether they are meeting as a den group or doing “Scouting on Demand” from home on their own schedule.  We hope that this will be helpful to families and leaders. 

Also from Scouting on Demand, Hiketober!  See https://www.atlantabsa.org/AmazingActivities and get out for a hike or two or twelve – and get a patch!  13 trails are linked there, and you know more, so … Hike On!

A Cub Scout Adventure Resource -- Adventures Grouped by Content / Topic

Posted on Oct 20 2020 - 4:52pm

Check out this Cub Scout Adventures by Topic page -- this lists rows of "topics" or "content" found in Adventures, and notes in each column whether an -- and usually "in which" -- Adventure has that content.  This can be useful if you have a mixed den or want a common "let's do hiking" or "let's do games" program theme for a month.  The Adventure references then link you to our Adventure resource pages.
