Cub Scouts 2010

Posted on 30 July 2009 by admin

Cub ScoutsThe 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.

Cub Scout Fast Tracks

Posted on 19 January 2009 by Dan

Fast TracksFast Tracks is a National BSA program which is designed to help dens make sure their boys are advancing in rank. Fast Tracks is a series of den meeting plans (two den meetings per month) designed to be used in conjunction with the youth handbooks. By following the prescribed den meeting plans as written, the boys will fulfill the requirements necessary to earn the badge of rank by the end of February.

In the den meeting plan section you will find the basic den meeting agenda format, tips on how to run your den meeting, basic guidance on den meeting structure, and organizational tips.

Each den meeting is presented on separate pages, so you can print out only what you
need at the time. Any handouts to be used at a given den meeting will follow the den meeting plan. These handouts can also be found in the Resources folder.

After the complete year of meeting plans for your program area, you will find tips about summer events and a Resources folder with additional resources.

Access Fast Tracks!
