Virtual Roundtable

Timely Cub Scouting information in brief 7 to 15 minute segments. Topics are not specific to a month and can be used as appropriate. New videos are updated every 3 to 4 months. 

Scout Book

Once you are a registered as a Cubmaster Scoutbook is your online resource to assist you with managing the Pack.  Calendars, tracking and reporting awards, and communication with parents.  

Scoutbook now features special Den Leader experience that helps  den leaders plan and prepare for den meetings.  Details on what to do before, during, and after meeting along with the resources needed to deliver the program right at their fingertips. 

Scoutbook is free for everyone registered in Scouting.  Once you are registered, you or another leader can set up who is in your den and off you go!

Den Leader Experience Sandbox

The Den Leader Experience (DLE) is Scoutbook for den leaders. DLE was initially developed to help brand new den leaders but can be beneficial for anyone. DLE helps to deliver the program by aiding with planning, providing videos on how to accomplish some activities and assisting with advancement tracking. To see how DLE works, check out the sandbox! The sandbox is where testing of future updates happens and also allows for those who are not den leaders to learn about the app.

Training for Cub Scout Leaders

Cub Scout leader training is available online at any time of the day or night to make needed information easily accessible. Modules are in “bite sized pieces” of 5 to 7 minutes and can be viewed from any smart device or computer. Den leader curriculum is divided into 3 parts: before the first den meeting, first 30 days and 90 days. For more information about training at all levels of the program, visit the Training webpage.
