Cub Scout Program Modifications - November 2016
On November 30, 2016, BSA announced some changes to the new (2015) Cub Scout Program. Mostly, this re-organizes some adventures, and makes them simpler to achieve (making some elements optional, or removing them altogether). This supplements the information in the Cub Scout handbooks, and will (eventually) be available as an insert you can print (or even better, buy) and insert into the book.

Talk to your Den Leaders about how this changes things. It may seem complicated and daunting at first, but it should be reasonably easy to accomplish, but it'll be a little confusing for a while.
