Cub Scouts 2010

The development of materials to support the change in the delivery method for Cub Scouts (Cub Scouts 2010) continues. Teams of volunteers are working to make the necessary changes within publications and training. A full time line of deliverables will be rolled out at Top Hands in August.

Highlights include:
– A new Den and Pack Leader’s Resource Guide—a one stop tool for running den and pack meetings. This will replace Program Helps. This new resource will be available online and in print.

– Den meeting plans, the core to this methodology, are being expanded to support dens that meet year-round. These plans also will support those that don’t work around a school-year calendar and those that meet more frequently than twice per month. Plans will support advancement, electives, activity badges, and summertime activities and awards.

– Fast Start (den leader and Cubmaster) and Leader Specific Training (den leader and Cubmaster) will be changing to reflect the change in delivery method and to better time content delivery with new leaders’ information needs. Den Leader and Cubmaster Leader Specific Training will be available online as well as in a trainer-presented format.

– Roundtable will be largely unaffected, although the seasonal themes used historically will be discontinued in favor of a calendar more tightly aligned with the traditional Scouting calendar.

I’ve had a couple of people ask me where this information came from. It was information that was talked about at the monthly National Innovation Council, which is made up of two Scout Executives from every region.

This statement is kind of vague: “Roundtable will be largely unaffected, although the seasonal themes used historically will be discontinued in favor of a calendar more tightly aligned with the traditional Scouting calendar.” As Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner, I like to plan well in advance. Any indication when the specifics will trickle down to us?

It is past time for this. Five years ago, my Wood Badge patrol had two Cub leaders. Both of us chose something to make it easier for new Den Leaders to get started. Mine was a set of meeting helps for Wolf.

I gave up on the Program Helps when I went through a season and figured out that it didn’t even finish Bear in nine months. Our pack tried to finish Bear in time for the Blue & Gold banquet in February, then work on arrow points.
