BSA Cubcast -

Well, Joe, we had a chat with Wood Badge expert Mark Nelson, who shares with us everything (the who, what, when, where, and why) you need to know about this advanced leadership training course. We bet you’ll be registered for a course before the show is over.

March 2017 - Tracking Advancement

BSA Cubcast -

Last month, we discovered that one of the keys to keeping boys in the Cub Scouting program is advancement. Both Amy and Aaron know first-hand that this can sometimes be a daunting task, so we invited Scoutbook inventor, Shawn Jackson, to the show to talk with us about the importance of advancement and how the Scoutbook app may be the perfect solution for keeping up with everyone’s achievements and awards.

January 2017 - Tax Exemptions and the Den Leader

BSA Cubcast -

@cubcast follower Jake@getbackupagain1 sent us a tweet asking if a new den leader can write-off the supplies he purchases as tax deductions. Because there is not a simple “yes” or “no” answer, we invited tax expert and legal counsel for the BSA, Russ McNamer, to the show to help us navigate this complicated topic and make it sound, well, less complicated.

November 2016 - Using the Den Leader Guide

BSA Cubcast -

Here in Texas it’s 102 degrees in the shade in the summer, and that’s not very good for outdoor adventures. Or what if that historical site your den is supposed to visit is 200 miles away? There are many examples of when your Den Leader Guide suggests an outdoor adventure, but what do you do when common sense tells you to stay inside or stay closer to home? Katie Dettmann, Cubmaster for Pack 9111 in Lakeville, Minnesota, joins us to help us figure that out. Katie led a fabulous conference at Philmont on how to facilitate a high-performing Cub Scout pack. Now she’s going to share all that great information with us right here on CubCast.

October 2016 - The Webelos Den

BSA Cubcast -

Besides the fact that Webelos Scouts get to wear the khaki and green uniform, there are differences between your Webelos Den and the other Cub Scout dens. For instance, do you know when to start having your Webelos Scouts use the Boy Scout salute and handshake? And there’s a bit of a shift for the parent’s role as well. So, joining us is Erica Smalls, who has served as Den Leader for all four ranks and is currently a Webelos Den Leader in Pack 387 and Scoutmaster for Troop 253 in the Longhorn Council in Ft. Worth, Texas to answer all of our Webelos Den questions.
