  1. I guess I used the term "teach" loosely. I ahve completed so many Cub Scout and Boy Scout Specific Leader Trainings in the past and have even began to retake some of the online classes this past week to refresh my mind on the "lil ones". I found out today that when school starts back up in August I will not have the 11-12 year old boys as they will be going to differnt activities and will not be there. Still though I have a challange in conducting basically a den meeting for these boys, with all dens present at once. I have the few Tigers, several Wolves & Bears and even some that are Webe
  2. Thanks to all. I am actually from a rural town about 50 miles from Kansas City, and that is where I grew up and went through scouting at. I am now living though in the "Heart" of KC near the Truman Sports Complex where the KC Chiefs & KC Royals play. Thanks for letting me join such a warm and inviting forum. YIS, John
  3. Hello, I have recently became a Program Aide for the ScoutReach Program in my local council. Even though I had Cub Scouting experience in the past as a Cub myself and then as an Assistant Webelos Den Leader, I had no idea what I was getting myself into now.

I know if I was the Cub Ma
  5. Hello. I am new to Scouter.com and actually found this by mistake. I have recently been asked to become a Program Aide for the ScoutReach Program in the Heart of America Council and was online trying to find some Cub Scouting resources and came upon this site. This is quite a nice forum and I am sure I will find alot of valuable resources here. A little about myself: I started Tiger Cubs in 1990 and made it all the way through to Eagle in 2002. I have worked four summers at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation in Osceola, Mo. I have had about every position title as a youth and various ad
