I am a little hesitant to list too many but here are a few –

The White House - Webelos working on Citizen may be interested in the White House – There are two sites –

http://www.whitehouse.gov - is the official white house site

http://www.whitehouse.gov/kids/ - is the kids version of the official White House site


Soaring ideas - Earn Cub Scout Achievements with NASA’s Help - National has developed with NASA a part of their Spaceplace website for Cubs to go and have fun. http://spaceplace.jpl.nasa.gov/cubscouts There is a list sorted by rank of activities that can be applied to requirements for achievements, electives, activity badges, and Sports and Academic pins and belt loops. Links take you directly to the activities on the main website.

Another place to soar – The American Kite Association website -www.aka.kite.org The AKA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public in the art, history, technology, and practice of building and flying kites.

The Big Wind Kite Factory - with downloadable directions on building kites!!!  http://www.molokai.com/kites

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences – Kids Pages  Here’s another from Keri in SC, “I love finding great resources but this is the first time I found so many in one spot. The song list is great, lots of lyrics to lots of songs - even a Scout song. The "Cool Links" are terrific. There are links for the EPA, FEMA, other environmental links, plenty of science (even dissecting frogs), and educational links. I played with hidden pictures and on-line coloring. Check it out, it is well worth your time.”


New recruiting Ideas (so critical at this time of the year)- The Santa Clara County council has an excellent document called Invitation Methods for Cub Scouting.  It is a 1Meg PDF file on recruiting.  So if you need some new ideas, visit their website  http://www.sccc-scouting.org/ .

And if you need answers – Pack 958, Leesburg, Virginia, has “100 Frequently Asked Scouting Questions” at http://www.loudoun-net.com/pack958/faq.htm

The Virtual Cub Scout Leaders Book is available courtesy of Pack 215, Walnut Creek, CA http://www.geocities.com/~pack215/home.html

Here’s a good Pack web site with links to many forms and other stuff – It is Pack 480 in Southern New Jersey Council -


If you wish your pack website featured – drop a note to commisionerdave@comcast.net
