Cub Scouts Changes Are Afoot!

Cub Scouts Changes Are Afoot!

So, did you happen to hear about the changes coming to the Cub Scouts? They're pretty big. Cub Scouts will have to tick off a set of Adventures to earn their rank badges, with some electives thrown in. Also, Tiger Cubs are going to be just regular old Tigers (we never said "Bear Cub" or "Wolf Cub," so it's only fair). Oh, and the Adventures all have new belt loops that the kiddos get after achieving them. You can find every single detail about the program in the Program Change Overview. And if you want a more complete rundown, check out Bryan's Blog. There's plenty of time to get familiar with this stuff. We don't get started until the 2015-2016. One more thing: if you just want a broad look...

Did You Win The Cub Scouts Go Camping Giveaway?

Did You Win The Cub Scouts Go Camping Giveaway?

Over the last month, the Cub Scouts gave away 12 pieces of gear from ScoutStuff.org. What kind of gear? Just things we thought Cub Scouts (and their parents!) would think were cool. So we had to have some binoculars. A couple of Camelbaks. A tent, a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad, and a camp chair. A really amazing survival kit. Some rain gear and a hiking staff and a headlamp. Oh, and a pretty amazing hammock. Can't forget the hammock. All you had to do was comment on one of four pictures that we posted on our Facebook Page. So the big question: Did you win? Well, if you're one of these people, you sure did: Kylene Clay-Adkins — sleeping bag Gretchen Flotow — camp chair Scott Nagy — rain...

5 Awesome Cub Scout Meeting Activities

5 Awesome Cub Scout Meeting Activities

Your Cub Scouts meetings rock. We all know this. But are you ready to rock ... harder? Here's a list of Cub Scout activities that you can use for den meetings, pack meetings, and pretty much any other Cub Scout get together.   Human Foosball  So awesome, so simple, so perfect.     Team Challenge: Dried Spaghetti  Seriously, how hard could this be? Um, really, really hard.     Tape Ball FTW! It's tape. It's a ball. It's ... tape ball. Substitute other stuff for candy if you're worried about things getting too amped.     Target Bounce  Here's the thing: the more simple a game is, the more fun kids usually have. This = easy.     The Easiest Catapult Technically, just a lever, sure. But give a Cub Scout long...
