  1. Time and Place

  2. 1. When and where will I be training a Cub? (weekend activity or den meeting?)Is it an inside or outside activity?2. What are some age appropriate activities? 3. How will I select an activity to teach? What are the possibilities?4. Should I ask the individual den leaders what activities need to be covered?(maybe they have just done the activity you selected)5. What about adult supervision? Who will be my point person? • Working with Cub Scouts can take place at regular Den meetings, or at special events like Day Camp, a camping trip, or times that the Pack arranges. Talk with the Den Leader as the first step. Be sure to think about the setting and topic—some teaching and activities will work better outside, for example (like ultimate Frisbee), but things like the weather are important to think about.

Who will be my point person? • Remember that Cub Scouts range from 6 year olds to 11 year olds, so there is a big difference in what is appropriate and what they can physically or safely do. Ask the Den Leader or parents to help decide if the activity sounds right for the Cub Scouts you’re working with. More so than Boy Scouting, the Cub Scout activities are really intended to be done with a parent or adult supervising. Remember too that the “Guide to Safe Scouting” provides rules on what we are and are not allowed to do in Scouting. • You can also see a chart with information on age-appropriate activities at: • http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/ageguides.pdf

Who will be my point person? • What do you like to do? Find something you’re good at and have some skill at. For many of your hobbies there is a belt loop or activity pin. Online, here is a listing of all the different sport- and academic-based awards that the Cub Scouts can do: • http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Awards/Boys/sanda.aspx • There are also lots of other great ideas online. For example, • http://www.boyscouttrail.com/cub-scouts/ has a lot of activities, games, etc. • You can also look in the Handbook for the Cub Scout group you are working with. • Here is another online place to find ideas: • http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/13-232.pdf
