Say hey to Ethan, your boys’ new guide through Cub Scouting

ethan 2Next year, your Cub Scout pack will grow in size by one cool kid.

Ethan, the newest member of the Cub Scout team, will be a part of each adventure in your boys’ new Cub Scout handbooks.

He’ll always be a year older and one rank ahead of your Cub Scout readers, meaning he’ll speak to them like a friend. He’ll share encouragement, tips, anecdotes and even a few mistakes he made along the way — along with what he learned, of course.

When the volunteer-led Cub Adventure Team solicited illustration samples for Ethan, one submission stood out above the others. His uniform was perfect with everything in the right place. It’s almost as if the illustrator had Scouting experience.

He does. He’s an Eagle Scout.

Watch for Ethan as a Wolf in the Tiger handbook, a Bear in the Wolf handbook, and a Webelos Scout in the Bear handbook. As your boys work toward their Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks, Ethan, now a Boy Scout, will give them glimpses of the fun awaiting them as they transition to Boy Scouts.

Find more details, including some samplers of the new handbooks and den leader guides, at the scouting.org Program Updates page.
