Loy_36. I know the problems you have. I started helping out at my old Cub Scout pack just two years ago, and we had four Cubs, all ages. I used these youngsters to decide what sort of programme they liked. I also used our proficiency badges as programmes and the Cubs saw they were earning badges and started to tell their friends what fun they were having. I understand I am a UK Scouter, but I find kids are kids and like to be earning badges to show off to their peers. We now have 23 Cubs.
