The Leaders Aisle

Scout Shops across the country are experiencing shipping delays just like many other industries. We ask that unit leaders be considerate to those new families and growing Scouts who are unable to acquire some uniform items during this time.  Feel free to email Scout Shop Manager, Jennifer Adkins, at jennifer.adkins@scouting.org if you have any questions or concerns.

The new Citizenship in Society Merit Badge is here!

Beginning July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge will be required for any youth seeking to achieve the prestigious Eagle Scout rank.

Retiring Cub Scout Awards

Every year, Cub Scout Adventures are reviewed to identify trends and determine interests of our youth, den leaders, and Cub Scout families. In our ongoing efforts to keep the Cub Scouting Adventure program relevant to today’s families, Cub Scout elective Adventures are reviewed for both content and popularity. The most recent review has identified 19 elective Adventures that do not meet the standards of youth and den leader engagement, with the lowermost being earned by less than 3% of eligible youth. They will be retired effective May 31, 2022. The retiring of these adventures allows Cub Scouting to be more agile as we make continuous improvements to the program.  


We know that some families may want one last chance to earn these Adventures. Some den leaders may have already made plans for the upcoming program year. To help with transition, these Adventures will be available until the end of the 2021-2022 program year.  

The elective adventures to be retired are as follows:  

  • Family Stories

  • Earning Your Stripes 

  • Tiger Tales 

  • Tiger Theater 

  • Collections and Hobbies 

  • Grow Something

  • Hometown Heroes 

  • Motor Away 

  • Beat of the Drum 

  • World of Sound 

  • Make it Move

  • Robotics 

  • Looking Back Looking Forward 

  • Maestro 

  • Project Family 

  • Build My Hero 

  • Adventures in Science 

  • Fix It 

  • Movie Making
