New CubScouts.org web site

The new CubScouts.org is a site worth its weight in (blue and) gold!
(Posted on August 12, 2015 by Bryan Wendell in Cub Scouting, Scouting Tips, Technology)

Every so often, a website comes along that changes the game. That’s CubScouts.org.

Cub Scout leaders, before you accuse me of hyperbole, check out the new CubScouts.org for yourself. You’ll find an official Boy Scouts of America site that links you to everything you need for successful Cub Scouting.

You can shop for gear, get updates about new Cub Scout adventures and requirements, find a pack near you, download recruiting resources, and check out the Learning Library.

It’s the Learning Library I’m most excited about. It’s a constantly growing, indispensable resource that will help you administer a quality program. You’ll find info on:

         - The basics of den meetings and building strong dens
         - Delivering the required and elective adventures
         - Den planning, administration and advancement
         - Positive youth development
         - Working with boys and Cub Scouts with special needs

The Learning Library section for Den Leaders is live now. Sections for Cubmasters, committee members, chartered organization representatives, and parents and guardians are coming soon. As the Learning Library grows, you’ll find all the information and resources you need, customized to you and your position within the organization.

BSA pro Bob Scott and the Cub Scout team created a site that’s fun, engaging, easy-to-use and — most important of all — full of resources you want and need.

But the team’s open to feedback. If you have something you’d like to see, or if something isn’t working the way it should, contact them at info@cubscouts.org.

What about Cub Hub, the predecessor to CubScouts.org? It’s still around, at CubScouts.org/blog. And it’s still full of fun Scouting ideas and the latest adventures in the world of Cub Scouting.

OK, enough from me. Head over to CubScouts.org and take a look around.

Eagle Scholarships (& Other Eagle Awards)

Scholarships ranging from $2000 to $50,000 are available.
