Reminder About Cub Advancement Resource Pages Here

Posted on Oct 12 2021 - 9:58am

Here's a Reminder about Cub Advancement Resource pages here, also found on the AAC Website through Cub Scout Advancement.  In our Cub Scout Adventure (meeting) Plans pages -- which has sub-pages for each Rank and then further sub-pages with resources for each and every Adventure, ready for sharing with parents.

There are now 97 Adventures with Family Led Plans (100% of Cub Adventures plus Bobcat) -- plans that are also useful for den activities too, since they provide easily available information for parents and parent leaders -- like useful videos, tips and links, plus simpler plans in a Cub Scout format -- and in a fun, simple and innovative manner to help take the stress out of guiding a Scout in Adventure advancements.  The list of Adventures with Family Led Plans is here, and below -  click on the link you like for a Rank or any Adventure:
