New Cub Scout Pack Meeting Plans

pack meeting plans imageI’m so excited to share this information with you!  BSA has released Cub Scout pack meeting plans for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 scouting years.  There are plans for each point of the Scout Law.

Even though the plans have specific months, you don’t have to follow that schedule unless you want to.  The Boy Scouts of America is encouraging packs to cover all 12 points of the Law.

The great thing about these plans is that we have multiple plans for each point.  So, you’ll find two Clean plans, two Reverent plans, etc.  It’s my understanding that eventually, there will be five year’s worth of plans.  Continue reading

Camping in the New Cub Scout Adventure Program 2015

In the new Cub Scout program, there seems to be more of an emphasis on camping. My friend, Scouter Adam, reviewed the camping requirements on his blog and compiled the list for us.  Another friend, Robert the Popcorn Guy, created this awesome Camping for Cubs chart using Adam’s information.  Both Adam and Robert said that I could share their information with the Cub Scout Ideas readers.

You’ll find that going on a pack camp out is a requirement to earn your rank badge for Wolf, Bear and Arrow of Light dens. The only exception is for those packs whose charter organization doesn’t allow pack camping. Continue reading
