CUB SCOUT RANK UPDATE
The National Boy Scouts of America recently shared an update providing for some increased flexibility with Adventures for Cub Scout dens. Effective Nov. 30th, some adventure requirements that were previously mandatory will become optional. Units can choose to complete the now optional requirements as they would have previously. Units can also choose to adopt the new requirements which allow Adventures to be completed in approximately two meetings per month. The goal is to make advancement achievable by all Cub Scouts.  The new requirements will be posted in a free addendum available at:
