This is a kid’s site from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that teaches how to prepare for disasters and prevent disaster damage.

Cub Scout Achievement, Elective, Rank, and Academics and Sports Trackers on their own website!!


A lot of websites carry the Excel based trackers she developed but have old and outdated versions. So Roxanne developed her own web page that will always carry the most recent versions (with all known bugs fixed and many enhancements recommended by users).

She recently revised the Cub Scout spreadsheets to –

ü     Include the Outdoor Activity Award

ü     Make them easier to work with in OpenOffice.

ü     Track Tiger beads and handle up to 15 tigers.

Please direct your den leaders or advancement chairs to the website for the most recent versions of the trackers. (feel free to add a link to your pack's website if that is helpful!)


Thank you Roxanne!! CD

PS – She, also, has Girl Scout and Boy Scout Trackers!!!
