Cub Scouting Program Updates

The Cub Scouting program is changing effective June 1, 2015.

Updated Cub Scouting Position-Specific In-Person Training Guides Available

The Den Leader, Cubmaster and Assistant Cubmaster, and Pack Committee (Pack Committee Challenge) training guides have been updated to reflect the new Cub Scouting program and are now available on the adult training page.

Online Training for the New Cub Scouting Program

The online training for den leaders, Cubmasters, committee chairs and members, and chartered organization representatives has been updated with the help of volunteers from around the country. The new training will be divided into shorter, more targeted modules so leaders can get the training they need, in the order they want, any time they need it. The new training is organized into time-based sections: the learning needed prior to the first meeting and within the first 30 days, and training needed to be considered position-specific “trained.”
The new training will be implemented in conjunction with the BSA’s new learning management system. The anticipated timing for launching this new tool is June 30, 2015. Keep an eye on for more information.
