Learning the Scout Oath and Law might seem intimidating when a boy first joins Cub Scouts, but add Legos, and it becomes a super fun activity! There aren’t many little boys who don’t love building things with Legos. And there aren’t many parents of little boys who haven’t stepped on a Lego. It hurts! 😃 [Read more…]
Have you ever had a den meeting that just didn’t go right? The boys just couldn’t stay on task. Or the activity was too hard or too easy. Or they just weren’t interested in it. Or they finished more quickly than you thought they would.

We made Cub Scout robots at day camp last week! Because the boys were going to earn the 1-2-3 Go! Nova award at camp, each rank needed to complete an adventure. For Bears, it is Robotics.

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. [Read more…]
