Cub Scout Training for Adult Volunteers

Cub Scouts need trained and informed leaders.  This page shares some of that information.

Monthly Roundtables: offer continuous training for Cub Scout Leaders and typically meet once a month in your district. For times consult your district page.

Online Training: Log on to for Youth Protection Training, and your position online training. Also, there is Weather Hazard Training and more available.

In-person Training Calendar: See what in-person courses are available by this council

The Cub Scout Program is brand new, effective June 1, 2024. Here are the changes so you can get ready. 

We are really excited about the changes.  (Attention: Scoutmasters - click here)

The four areas of improvement are the Bobcat badge, Cub Scout Adventures, Webelos, and Cub Scout Awards. 

Bobcat will no longer be a badge earned once when a Cub Scout joins.  It will become a required adventure for each rank and earned each year.  The requirements for the Bobcat Adventure are different for each grade to make them age-appropriate.

This page will be updated as more and better information comes in. Last updated February 26, 2024

This Roundtable Presentation is provided by Council Service Territory 9 via your local Commissioner Service Team.
