Scouting at Home for Cub Scouts

With packs and dens not meeting, it may seem like Cub Scouting is on hold. But we have Great News! Cub Scouting can be done at home with the family. During this time of social distancing, families can continue to work on Cub Scout advancement at home with their families. Visit an online museum or go camping in your back yard. Almost every single Cub Scout advancement can be accomplished at home with the family. Just remember the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!

Cub Scout requirements can be found for each den level below. In addition to the requirements, Den Leader planning workbooks are also available below to help you with activities and ideas. Want to dive deep into STEM topics and earn special NOVA awards? Check out the NOVA award section.

Track your Cub Scout’s progress and once your Scout has completed the requirements, inform your den leader.
