Summary / Speakers

January 2020



February 2020

 Managing Big Events

How can you plan for special events without being overwhelmed by them? Concepts such as delegating, time management, simplification and "crowd-control" will help leaders prepare exciting Blue & Gold Banquets, Pinewood Derbys, Bear Carnivals and more - all while keeping in mind the essential purposes and meaning of Scouting

Penny-saving Tips and Thrifty Choices

How can we keep costs down and live the ideal of “a Scout is thrift?” This month’s discussion centers on ways to save every nickel your Pack earns, from cutting costs at big events to cheap alternatives for den activities and field trips. Scouting is always exciting – but it doesn’t have to be expensive!

Meaningful Ceremonies and Programs

Few things are as memorable as a great Cub Scout awards ceremony – and few things as excruciating as a long, boring meeting. This month’s meeting dives into what makes a good ceremony effective and how to avoid over-drawn meetings. The right resources can provide a treasure trove of scripts, programs and plans to help make every one of your ceremonies sparkle – and we’ll have a whole slew of them available here for you at this month’s Roundtable!

Extra Awards Beyond the Cub Scout Adventures


Have your Scouts earned ALL the adventures for their rank already? In need of something new to engage their interests? This month we discuss the host of extra and ‘super’ awards available to Cub Scouts and their dens, from the Emergency Preparedness Award to the World Conservation Award to the ScoutStrong Healthy Unit Award – if it’s available for Cubs to earn, you’ll learn about it at this month’s meeting!

Fostering Den Spirit and Pack Pride

How do you get your group of Scouts to feel and act like a team? Belonging to a den is one of the chief methods of Cub Scouting – this month, we talk about how to nurture and build that sense of unity within your unit. Den flags, cheers, emblems and more – once your kids LOOK like a team, they’ll ACT like a team! Don’t worry – we’ll show you how!


October 2020

Managing Behavior - Elementary School Ages 

Managing the behavior of your Scouts can be a tricky thing – every rank of Cub Scouting covers a different age with unique developmental markers. Come this month to discuss the behavioral differences of elementary school ages, and learn about multiple effective, simple tools to help you manage the behavior of your Scouts during den and pack meetings. Routines, incentives – even your tone of voice – can all be used to help your kids learn how to manage their feelings and make the most of your time together.

The Cub Scout Leadership Team

What is the relationship between a Cubmaster and a Bear Den Chief? How are the Cub Committee Chair and the Webelos Denner connected? This month’s meeting delves into the intricate connection between the many roles and responsibilities of a Cub Scout pack, and how every part supports another. Tips for navigating pack structure, training requirements and opportunities, and clarification of roles will all be explored, as well as suggestions for delegating, cooperating, and harmonizing pack efforts into one cohesive – but evenly-distributed – whole.

Keeping Advancement Simple and Meaningful 

This month’s session breaks down the Cub Scout advancement system to make it as accessible and comprehensible as possible. Why do we use the advancement method? How does it help our young people? Cub Scouting provides a host of resources for leaders to use, from charts to posters, from books to videos – but how do we keep it all focused on the real purpose of advancement, and not advancement for advancement’s sake? And how do we get young Scouts to truly engage with the program? Counsel, help and guidance are all yours at this month’s important Cub Scout Roundtable session.
