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. 

You can find the plans on BSA’s website, but I’m also posting them here for your convenience.

    I like the new rank advancement ceremonies for each month, but in the new program, there shouldn’t be any rank advancement until much later in the year. Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

      There’s no rank advancement until the boys have completed 7 adventures. But, you want to make sure you are recognizing the boys every time they complete an adventure. You can have a ceremony to present the completed adventure loops to the boys. Hope this makes sense! 🙂

      I don’t understand the part of the Sept meeting that brings up the Adventure Loop and pins. Virtually impossible in the first meeting unless the den leaders worked at it all summer. Not many do scouting over the summer :/

        If you don’t have any awards to present, you can skip that part. But, there are a few situations where boys may be able to complete adventures prior to the September pack meeting.

        In our pack, we don’t have den meetings in the summer, but many of our boys attend Cub Scout day camp where they can work on adventures. If any of your boys go to Cub Scout or Webelos resident camp, they are likely to have finished some adventures. If your September pack meeting is at the end of the month, they may have completed them too.

        Hope this helps!

    When you take the flag out at the end of a Pack meeting, you RETRIEVE the colors. Retiring the colors means you are going to destroy the flag by burning or burying the flag. It’s a common mistake, but needs to be corrected.

      Hi, there! Are you seeing this in one of the plans themselves? If so, you would need to contact the BSA directly. They are the ones who created these.

      I’m glad you told me this! I’ll make sure that anything I do says “retrieve.” Thanks!
