Adventure Packs 1.0

Monthly Program and supplies kits for your Den meetings

There is uncertainty in all aspects of our lives these days, especially the Scouting part:

  • How are you going to keep your Scouts active and advancing?
  • How will you recruit new Scouts if there’s no program happening in your den?
  • How do you overcome supply shortages for the materials you need to complete advancement requirements?

We want to make your life a little easier and keep your Cub Scouts earning Adventures and moving ahead through the program. To do this, we’re offering what we call Adventure Packs – a curated collection of instructions and materials conveniently delivered to you monthly.

Adventure Packets - What Are They?

  • Rank-specific curated program
  • Five packets in each installment for each Cub Scout rank - Tigers through Webelos/Arrow of Light
    • First installment - Designed for September to January program and focuses on instructions and materials for work toward required Cub Scout Rank Adventures.
    • Second installment - Designed for February through June program and focuses on instructions and materials for work toward the elective Cub Scout Rank Adventures.
  • Combination of activities, short videos, worksheets
  • Self-directed activities
  • Materials needed to complete the adventures
  • Videos are on our council’s YouTube channel (private playlists)
  • CyberChip is included for each box

 

 

Where are Adventure Pack activities completed?

  • At organized den meetings
  • At home as part of a virtual den meeting
  • At home as an individual or family activity
  • A combination of attending meetings and completing activities at home for missed meetings

NOTE: If activities are completed as an individual or family activity, you’ll need to report what you’ve accomplished to your Scout’s Den Leader or Cubmaster in order to earn the advancement.

 

What is inside an Adventure Packet?

  • Bound workbook listing activities and including directions and materials you need from home
  • All supplies and materials to complete craft activities that aren’t commonly available at home
  • URLs to access our council’s YouTube playlists for curated short videos to support the learning objectives (this is to supplement the written instructions; you don’t have to have online access to complete the activities)
  • Pages in the workbook to organize and show your work

What is NOT inside an Adventure Packet?

  • A few electives require swimming or camping; you’ll need to complete these with your own resources
  • Tools and supplies that most families have at home, such as:
    • Glue and tape
    • Crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens, pencils
    • Basic tools for woodworking projects (hammer, saw, screwdriver)
    • Perishable goods needed to complete cooking requirements
  • Virtual den leaders and pack meetings (you must provide your own adult leadership)

 

What are the advantages of ordering/using an Adventure Pack Subscription?

  • Reduces the planning time for Den Leaders
  • Eliminates shopping for supplies
  • Easy for Scouts who can’t attend a meeting to complete the activities as they are able
  • Advancement and fun activities can continue if Den Leader or Scouts become sick or quarantined
  • Scouts joining later in the year can catch up on missed activities
  • Scouts with short attention spans can complete activities at their own pace outside of your meetings
  • Highly motivated Scouts have opportunity to complete adventures not included in your meetings

Cost

  • One subscription for one Cub Scout - $20 per box. 
  • Order a Den set of  for eight Cub Scouts - $15 per box. 
  • Cost includes bound workbook, and supplies
  • Cost comes out to approximately $10 worth of supplies and program materials per meeting.
