Cubmaster Resources


The pack meeting brings all of the dens in the pack together for the purposes of recognizing the achievements of the Cub Scouts, communicating information about upcoming events, and providing a program that enriches the Cub Scouting experience.  It helps the Cubs realize their den is part of a larger organization.  A good pack meeting is well planned and well organized.  Packs meet several times during the year – there is no required number.  Some packs meet monthly, others less often. 


Cub Scout Leader Book

The Cub Scout Leader Book gives the details on how a Pack is organized.  This is the best resources for Cubmasters and Pack Committee Chairs.

The Cub Scout Leader Book is also available for Kindle.

Guide to Safe Scouting

All participants in official Scouting activities should become familiar with the Guide to Safe Scouting, applicable program literature or manuals, and be aware of state or local government regulations that supersede Boy Scouts of America practices, policies, and guidelines. The Guide to Safe Scouting is an overview of Scouting policies and procedures gleaned from a variety of sources. For some items, the policy statements are complete. Unit leaders are expected to review the additional reference material cited prior to conducting such activities.
