Get Your Electronic Cub Scout Den Leader Guides

Cub Scout den leader guides are available electronically. You can plan den meetings while you're on the go–car rider line, soccer practice, or anywhere!

Cub Scout Electronic Den Leader Guide

Did you know that the Cub Scout den leader guides are available electronically using Adobe Digital Editions software?

If you don't have Adobe Digital Editions software, don't worry! You can create a free Adobe Account and download the Adobe Digital Editions software for free! The Adobe Digital Editions software is available for your tablet, smartphone or computer! If you don't have a free Adobe Account, click here to make one. Be sure to create this account and install the software before buying your first eBook. Otherwise, the file won’t open.

You can purchase the handbook, find instructions for your specific device, and answers to frequently asked questions here.

The beautiful thing about having an electronic copy of your den leader guide is that you can plan your Cub Scout den meetings from anywhere!

As parents, we are all busy, so, we need to make the most of every minute.  Think of all the places where we have to wait:  the car rider line, the doctor's office, soccer practice, martial arts class, piano lessons and more.  We can utilize that time to work on our plans!

Leader Guides Available Electronically

The general Cub Scout leader book covers topics such as an introduction to the Boy Scouts of America and Cub Scouting, administration and organization of Cub Scouting, rank advancement requirements, and program and activity planning.

Each rank has a leader guide available that will guide you through the adventure requirements.

Whether you're working with Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, or Arrows of Light, these leader guides can be very helpful. 

The leader guides can be downloaded by clicking on links below.

Don't forget that you can find lots of FREE resources right here on Cub Scout Ideas! I have activities for many of the adventure requirements.
