Printable Cub Scout Cards: Fun Resource

printable Cub Scout cardsI discovered this awesome printable Cub Scout cards on Etsy!  It is so cute, but in a rugged, Cub Scout way.  When I saw them, I knew they would be perfect to give to our Cub Scouts as we started the new year–especially the new Cub Scouts.

On a single page, you’ll find the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Cub Scout motto, the Outdoor Code, the Leave No Trace Principles for Kids, and the Scout slogan.  You can print the page and cut it so that you have individual cards for each of these.

The printable Cub Scout cards are a fun way to learn some of the things they need to know to earn their Bobcat rank.  The other boys can use them to review their Cub Scout basics.  Continue reading

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

Cub Scout Camping Checklist

Cub Scout camping checklistIf your pack has new families, you might need to tell them what they should bring to your campout.  A Cub Scout camping checklist would be a great thing to share with them.

Before my pack’s first campout last fall, several new Cub Scouts emailed us to ask what they needed to bring.  Those of us who have been around for a while knew, but we forgot that some people wouldn’t know.

I decided to create a Cub Scout camping checklist for our pack and to share with you.  Continue reading
