31st A Pack
P
rogram Work


At the 31st A Pack, we work on 2 Stars per year as a group. Since Cubs is typically a 3 year program, 2 Stars per year, fit nicely into a year, giving lots of time to work on other things.

At the end of 3 years, they would have earned all of their stars and had the opportunity to earns badges that they want to earn, at home or sometimes with us at a camp.

In order to keep track and lay out a nice tidy 3 year plan, we like to follow the Cub Book sequence.
