Cub program changes take effect June 1

Over the past five years the National Cub Scouting has been working on these updates.  These updates are based on feedback from over 23,000 parents and Cub Scout leaders through various surveys and data.  Listening to and identify the key opportunities to improve the program the National Cub Scout committee is excited to finally reveal these improvements.  Over the past year these improvements have been socialized to thousands of individuals with overwhelming support. The four areas of improvement are the Bobcat badge, Cub Scout Adventures, Webelos, and Cub Scout Awards. 

The most up to date articles on Cub Program Update can be found on the BSA National Website. Click HERE for this resource.

Your Council is planning multiple in-person and virtual information sessions to guide you through the changes. Watch your emails and the council and district Facebook pages for dates and times to be released.
