Cub Scouts Meet Here!

July 26, 2010 3:11 pm

Cub Scouting means “doing.” Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things.

Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.

National Council’s Cub Scout page has links to download the NEW meeting plans.

BSA Tips for Den Leaders

May 10, 2010 4:35 pm

Den leaders should check out this “Helpful Hints for Den Leaders” page at the BSA National website.

Among the useful suggestions are the following:

  • Plan meetings in advance and with an emphasis on “the flow of activities.”
  • At the beginning of the year, establish clear den rules.
  • Tiger Cub, Wolf, and Bear den leaders should encourage advancement with immediate recognition kits (i.e., the beads that go on the uniform).
  • Snacks are a great way to end a den meeting.
