Pony Express District Roundtable
19 November 2009
Online Resources

During Roundtable, I mentioned that I would put links to some handy online resources here on my blog. Well, here they are...

"Cub Scout Program Helps" is the publication that is like a 'lesson plan' for the Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Den Leaders, as well as the Cubmaster for Pack Meeting. The official national Scouting website is posting Program Helps one month at a time on a page of the website. The page states "or the entire year's program helps may also be downloaded" and yet both the link to and that full download have been removed from the page for some mysterious reason. I had gotten it while it was made available, and you can get it here.

Many of the Cub Scouting Forms are available from the BSA national site, and they even have many of the forms in Spanish. Here are a few that I will place direct links for...

The "Family Talent Survey Sheet," which, I believe, was discussed in both the Pack Leaders and Webelos Leaders classes.

The "Pack Meeting Planning Sheet" can be used to plan out your Pack Meetings.

In my 'Cub Scouting 101" breakout session, I mentioned that I would post links to some other helpful resources...

The Cub Scout Leader How-To Book (which explains the Den Doodles) is available online in PDF format.

Cub Scout Academics and Sports is the program where the Cub Scouts can earn Belt Loops and Pins. Pack 327 of Arbutus, Maryland has posted a PDF file of the complete Academics and Sports program guide.

Speaking of Academics and Sports, has created and posted Workbooks... one for each belt loop/pin that can be downloaded and used to complete the requirements for each belt loop and pin.

The site has also posted worksheets for each of the Webelos Activity Badges.

Some other items that you may be interested in...

"Guide to Safe Scouting" is available in two forms: one for online reading (smaller web page 'chapters'), and a PDF version of the printed Guide.

Pack 155 has posted the PDF of the Parent Information Guide.
