Scoutbook for Den Leaders
What: New Scoutbook features for Cub Scouting.
Why: To simplify and streamline the meeting planning process and ensure consistent program delivery so you can make the most of your unit’s time.
How: Den leaders will be able to access everything they need for den meetings from within Scoutbook taking the hard work of planning out of the equation. A pre-arranged set of den meetings are now available for all ranks so all a den leader has to do is set up the time and location of the den meeting and Scoutbook will provide the plan. Building on great advice from guides, handbooks and experienced leaders, the pre-developed set of meetings ensures that the den completes the requirements to earn their badge of rank. Parents can then see their Scout’s progress through the Scouting app.
Who: Cub Scout den leaders who want to spend time delivering the program and not trying to figure out what to do for each meeting. Pack leaders will still use the existing Scoutbook experience for the administrative part of their job.
When: The new features are available now, just in time for fall. Future revisions will include meeting plans for elective adventures and the ability to build your own den meeting plans.
