Updated with 2017-2018 Cub Scout pack meeting plans!
BSA has developed Cub Scout pack meeting plans for us to download and use free of charge. 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 more than one Clean plan, more than one Reverent plan, etc.
I’ll continue to update this post with the new plans every year, but I’ll also leave the old plans here too. They are a great resource. For example, if you’re having a meeting or event with a focus on knights, download the November 2016 plan for ideas.
The plans have all you need for a fun and successful meeting. Each one has:
- Instructions for setting up the meeting
- A fun gathering activity
- An opening ceremony and prayer
- Reminders for a welcome, introductions and den demonstrations
- An audience participation activity
- Recognition for earned adventure loops and pins
- Theme-based rank advancement ceremony
- A Cubmaster’s Minute script
- A closing ceremony
- Any resources needed for the meeting
The great thing about these plans is that you can pick and choose activities for den meetings or other events. If you don’t have many gathering activity ideas for your den meetings, you can use these. Need ceremony ideas? Pull them from these plans.
You can find the plans on BSA’s website, but I’m also posting them here for your convenience.
What do you think? Will having these plans make your pack meetings easier and more fun?
