Resources for all Scouting ranks...
It takes youth from 10 to 13 years to progress from Lion to Webelos to Eagle Scout and, along that scouting trail, they are guided by many adults - den leaders, cubmasters, merit badge counselors, scoutmasters, and many other volunteers. Every rank of scouting has a thoroughly designed program that helps to grow a member from one level to the next. It is very important that the adult leaders follow these programs so the scouts receive the most they can from their scouting experience from Cub Scouts to Scouts, and maybe to Venturing.
The program is really an outline with rules and guidelines but also plenty of room for personalization of the game of scouting by troops and packs. The basic foundation is found in the Scout Motto, Scout Slogan, and Scout Aims and Methods. The program leaders (youth and adults) need resources, ideas, and information to make their program fly. We hope you find useful aids here and we would love to hear any new ideas you have successfully used so we can help other groups of scouts succeed.
I was asked by National in Irving, Texas to let you know about ScoutCast - a series of podcasts for Scouts BSA, Cub Scouts, and Commissioners. Choose the one that interests you and be sure to notice the 'Archives' link on the far right to hear past podcasts.
View this set of Scout videos explaining the advancement requirements for Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, and 1st Class. They are helpful in explaining the requirements, even though somewhat dated.
This site began as a way to chronicle the experiences of one small group of cub scouts in Minnesota on their trail from tiger to eagle scouts. We documented our program schedules, advancements achieved, most all of our activities, games played, and skits performed. But, as things tend to evolve, we added more ideas that we thought would be fun to try some day. Soon, it turned into a resource of ideas for scouts everywhere to use. Hopefully, you'll use this site to improve your scouting program.
