Adventures await: The new Cub Scout program is officially here

The books are hot off the presses, the adventure loops are shiny, and the Cub Scouts in your den and pack are ready.

It’s June 1, meaning the new Cub Scout program is officially here.

You’ve been reading about the improvements to make Cub Scouting better since last year, and beginning today, your pack and den may begin using the program that’s better, easier to implement and more fun.

Of course, if your den or pack doesn’t run a year-round program, that’s OK. You’ll start using the new Cub Scout program once things kick off this fall.

Still have questions about the new Cub Scout program and how the transition process will work? Start with Scouting magazine’s May-June 2015 cover story. Read it here.
