Help For Dens That Don't Have Den Leaders Yet ...

Posted on Sep 23 2016 - 1:08pm

Following up on the New Cub Scout Adventure Plans for Bobcats and Early Den Meetings (filling a gap in the Den Leader Guides for the new Cub Scout Program), and anticipating successful Sign Up Nights that bring you more Youth Signups than you have Den Leaders to run den programs, we bring you a Cub Scout Adventure Plans resource page called "Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet" (or "Help! We don't have Den Leaders Yet ... What do we Do?"). 

What do you do?  Well, read the Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet page, because you don't want to dive into den meetings until you're really ready, with enough Den Leaders and Assistants, engaged and ready to go, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10).  

But ... you do have a great option for excellent Cub Scout Program.  The answer is do Easy Fun Family Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Adventures. 

This is in line with our message: "WARNING TO PACKS:  if you don't have enough Den Leaders, engaged and ready to go with enough helpers, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10), please do not attempt to have Den Meetings for those Dens!!!!  Instead, do Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Meetings".

As families have fun at the Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, you have a chance to get Den Leaders to emerge, for Assistants to step up, for Parents to agree to help and lead parts of the Den program, and for this parent / child program to reach success.

One More for the Road ... A Final Cub Leader Training Class for the ATL from Southern Crescent

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 5:43pm

Atlanta's Hottest Pack Leadership Team Training Class is Saturday, October 15 at Woodward.  Sign up in that link, or here.  

Based on past performances, this Cub Scout Leader Training Class has everything:  flying discs, latex party games, dyspnea, stockholm syndrome, club-goers chanting “hooah”, permission slips, light shows, indelible markers, repeat-after-me songs, baubles and geegaws.  

Bottom line:  Trained Leaders and Parents have more fun, and Children of Trained Leaders and Parents make better decisions about their parent's Assisted Living and Nursing Home care.   So now is the time to go!
