The Boy Scouts of America has announced modifications to the Cub Scout program. They are effective immediately.
A document detailing the changes can be found on the Program Updates page of the Scouting website. If you have already downloaded or printed this document, please check to make sure it is the latest version. The easiest way is to check the number of pages. The old version had 56 pages. The new one has 57. For your convenience, you may download the file by clicking on this link: Over the next several days, I’ll be reviewing these changes and will write about them here.
The Program Updates page of the Scouting website now has an addendum for each rank. It lists all of the requirements for that rank.
Yours in Scouting,
P.S. What do you think about the changes?
