Even More Adventures in Your Den and Pack

Cub Scouting is Fun, Family and Friends, and if “Keep It Simple, Make It Fun” is our plan, you’ll want to do even more Fun*Simple*Easy activities with your Den families and the friends of your Den families who might want to “test drive” Cub Scouting and join your Den and Pack. Let your families get to know each other and plan for the new program year – and help put on your Den and Pack program. More ideas and places to go at

Summertime: Make it Fun, Simple and Easy!

School’s Out For Summer! School breaks afford Cub Scout Dens and Packs a perfect opportunity for special activities that are fun, simple and easy. See some ideas in the link below, and consider whether your Pack or Den might qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award.

On The Lookout For Leaders

Simple Scouting summertime events are a great way to identify how parents in your Pack really do want to help … now is a great time to “turn parents into helpers and helpers into leaders”. Don’t forget adult social events to bond parents and leaders into a working team. There is no single “silver bullet” solution, but we have quite a quiver of arrows to help you hit the target when you try to grow your team. More at
