Fall recruiting will be a particularly exciting activity as Cub Scouts will include boys and girls. The configurations of the packs will be established by the chartered partner organizations and may include a new all-girl pack, an all-boy pack, or one that includes girl dens and boy dens.

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018 in National Cub Scout News

An email came into the CubCast mailbox from Katherine Drahmann who asked for an episode on resolving conflicts between den members. She points out that sometimes events occur outside the Den or Pack meeting and are then continued in the meeting. Joining us for this discussion on resolving conflict is Grace Davidson.

We are so happy that she found time to join us for what is sure to be...
