There’s big news for Cub Scouts — and future Cub Scouts — and everyone who works to ensure these children have a memorable and meaningful Scouting experience. That’s because this week we launched CubScouts.org, a new website that houses all of the resources needed to deliver a quality Scouting program that Cub Scouts and their parents will enjoy.
The introduction of this site helps us achieve an important part of our growth strategy for the Boy Scouts of America: building more adventures into our Cub Scouts program. We have been refocusing on our unit leaders to ensure they have the tools, training and support needed to deliver the kind of life-changing experiences Scouting is capable of providing. We want to give younger kids what they want for their first Scouting adventures. Overall, we want them to have fun!
Resources on CubScouts.org are organized by leadership role. Whether you are a parent, committee chair, charter organization representative, Cubmaster or Den Leader, you can easily find the materials you need for planning and organizing strong den meetings and outings.
That’s integral to our ability to recruit strong leaders and sustain a healthy, growing organization. Having a one-stop shop for questions about kids with special needs, advancement requirements, fun activities and other topics gives new leaders a fast start and helps keep them confident and organized. Armed with important knowledge on these and other topics, leaders will be equipped to deliver fun meetings and new adventures that keep our Cub Scouts coming back for more and energized to join Boy Scouts someday.
Right now, you can tap into the Learning Library at CubScouts.org to learn the basics of Cub Scouting, including guides for positive youth development and strengthening membership. Our official Cub Scout blog, “Cub Hub,” is home to many stories on how Cub Scouts make a difference for young boys and their communities.
I encourage you to check out CubScouts.org and look for opportunities to apply the resources housed there to your Cub Scouting program. If you have any questions or comments, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for more tools and resources coming soon.
