Packs, Troops and Crews with Trained Leaders

Posted on Dec 5 2017 - 6:09pm

Attached is a report showing the Number of Trained Leaders currently registered with each of our Packs, Troops and Crews, as reported in My.Scouting.Org -- some information may be "lagging" due to the need to submit Adult Leader Applications for new leaders, or the next generation of leaders or leaders who were "dropped" for lack of Youth Protection Training.  If you have taken a course that isn't showing in your profile at My.Scouting.Org, feel free to email the Webmaster or email the Training Chair.  To get trained, see our Leader Training page (good resources for parents too ... now with online Scoutmaster training through the National On Line Training site at ScoutingU with the same login as you have at My.Scouting.Org).

For Parents new to Cub Scouting: yes, this is for you to know Cub Scouting … we’ll show how to help your Den Leader and Pack Leaders do Cub Scouting so you and your son get the most out of it.  For existing Leaders, yes, this is for you too … you may have experience as a Den or Pack leader, but your trainer learns more from you each time he presents, and this program gets good reviews from experienced leaders. 

  • If you’re a Den Leader, we cover that most important role, and give ideas about how to get others to help you as you do Den Adventures
  • If you’re not a Den Leader, we’ll cover your role as Cubmaster or Committee member or helper … so you’ll know what a Den Leader does and everyone can help each other better … as a team.

We encourage experienced leaders to attend and bring parents and helpers to collaborate and share ideas and plan the rest of your year.

Cub Scout Den Leader Guides ... Free. Updated. Here.

Posted on Nov 28 2017 - 4:44pm

Cub Scouting is not about "doing meetings" but about "having Adventures".  Each Cub Scout Rank had new Rank Advancement Requirements roll out in 2015 (with some updates in November 2016), new Handbooks at each Rank, and new Den Leader Guides to deliver that program of Adventure.  The big changes are more hiking, more camping, more outdoors, more hands on fun ... less lecturecut back on craftsminimizing boring meetings if parents and leaders follow the spirt of the program.  

The Den Leader Guide material was available online to make it easy for leaders and parents to deliver the program in 2015, but the BSA removed all but 3 from each rank from the free site.  We think that shortsighted, so to be loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, etc. to the volunteers who lead Cub Scout Adventures, we've posted every Adventure Plan on these pages, plus the Introduction Section to each Den Leader Guide (which is exactly the same in each Guide, except for a few pages about the specific Adventures for Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos, each of which is inserted in our version) and the Appendix of Resources (which is exactly the same in each Guide, except for a Webelos Uniform page that we added in our version of the Appendix of Resources) -- if you have questions email the Cub Leader Trainer.  We do encourage Packs to buy each of the Guides by the way!!  So, while the CubScouts.org Learning Library may not have it all right now, we do:
