So Here's Camp Fife's plans-  Click on the pictures, and it'll take you to Camp Fife's Leader's Guide- with lots more helpful info!

Also-i'm sure there are a few who are planning on Camp Kiesel- so here is their camp plans with links to their leader guides!

Updated pack Meeting Plans and Themes

Here are pack Meeting themes to help you plan for your pack's 2015-2016 cub scout year.


A Few tips from the website:

  1. Pack meeting plans do not have to be done in any special order, but it is recommended that you include all of the points of the Scout Law each year. The pack planning meeting would be a good time to determine the order.
  2. There are pack meeting plans for multiple years posted on the website. It is your pack's choice of which one to select from each point of the Scout Law for each year.
  3. Pack meetings should not last longer than an hour. Adjust the plan to make it fit within the time. Research and experience tells us that Cub Scouts have a hard time sitting still for that long. Keep the meetings fun, active, and engaging.
  4. The following required adventures have a requirement that suggests or requires completion at a pack meeting. Please plan accordingly as part of your annual program planning process. Work with your den leaders to plan when these activities will take place.
    1. Tiger
      1. Tigers in the Wild, requirement 5. Participate in an outdoor pack meeting or pack campout campfire. Sing a song and act out a skit with your Tiger den as part of the program.
      2. Games Tigers Play, requirement 3. Make up a new game, and play it with your family or members of your den or pack.
    2. Wolf
      1. Council Fire, requirement 6c. Create a den project from recyclables for a pack meeting.
    3. Bear
      1. Grin and Bear It, requirement 2. Working with the members of your den, organize a Cub Scout carnival and lead it at a special event.
      2. Grin and Bear It, requirement 3. Help younger Cub Scouts take part in one of the events at the Cub Scout carnival.
    4. Webelos
      1. Stronger, Faster, Higher, requirement 5. With adult guidance, lead younger Scouts in a fitness game or games as a gathering activity for a pack or den meeting.
    5. Arrow of Light
      1. Building a Better World (if chosen), requirement 10b. Set up an exhibit at a pack meeting to share information about the World Friendship Fund.
  5. If you are comfortable with a costume to fit the theme of the meeting, go for it!
  6. Importantly, keep it simple and make it fun.
