Cub Scout Pack Program Planning

Question:  What do kids and families want from their Cub Scout experience?

Answer:  A well-planned, organized program full of fun and adventure!

Question:  How do you make that happen?

Answer:  It all starts with the Annual Program Planning Meeting.  Here are two great resources to get your pack started...

1.  Planning for Success - Resources to Create the Ideal Year of Scouting.

  • More parental involvement!
  • Better retention and youth participation!
  • More Cub Scouts earning awards and advancements!
  • More effective pack committee meetings!
  • Enough money to do all your activities with less time spent fund-raising!
  • Cub Scouts to be simpler, easier, and more fun!
  • And so much more...


Did You Know?

Research conducted by Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, Indiana, showed that a common element of strong packs is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance that is shared with all families in the form of a calendar. The important result of a shared annual program calendar is that your pack will attract more families and Cub Scouts will stay involved longer.
