Because keeping up the excitement of new Cub Scouts and their parents between sign-up night and their first pack meeting is so important to a pack’s success, the BSA has developed some new, easy-to-access resources to help maintain those peak interest levels.

Targeting new Cub Scout parents and newly recruited den leaders, these resources include a page on the BeAScout.org website (beascout.scouting.org/welcome.aspxExternal Link, or the Spanish version,beascout.scouting.org/bienvenidos.aspxExternal Link) that features a fun video highlighting Scouting in action and two simple information tab choices: “I am a new Cub Scout parent” and “I volunteered to be a new Cub Scout den leader.”

Parents can choose to investigate one or both tabs, where they will find basic information and answers to their most common questions. If they want still more information, they will be invited to explore Scouting.org.

A bilingual (English and Spanish) postcard is available to help guide parents to this wealth of online information,
