Cub Scouter Training Award

Kommisioner Karl


The Cub Scouter Award is available to all registered adult leaders in the Pack, including committee members.  The requirements focus on building a better or more effective Pack program. You must complete two years a registered Scouter, fast start, basic and specific training for any position, and be current with Youth Protection Training.  In addition, you must complete 5 of 10 options for providing leadership to the pack, via planning special events, training, promoting program basics or assisting program ideas for other leaders.  For a downloadable progress record and to see these options, go to:  http://www.scouting.org/forms/34169/54.pdf

Chances are, if you are working as a den leader in your Pack; you will complete these requirements over the two years that you are not earning your Den Leader and Webelos Leader awards.  You may have Pack Committee members that have done this as well, so get them to training and get them their recognition!
