Welcome to the 31st A Pack 2020 Virtual Schedule

As we all know, 2020 will go down in history as one of the MOST unique years ever. To endeavour to give your children the Cub program they deserve, and to keep them and us safe, we will be using ZOOM as our virtual meeting client of choice.

We have 2 Zoom hosts in myself and Baloo that have registered accounts.

Dress

Please have your Cub attend in uniform. Pants is NOT neccesary but shirts, neckers and woggles are.

Behaviour

Hoo Boy, this is a good one. As many of our Cubs this year are 1st year Cubs, and combining that with, I'm guessing, the fact no one has experience with Zoom, some pretty hairy situations have developed during our meetings. But the newness is rubbing off and the Cubs are realizing, with your help, that we are here to teach and have fun. No, we cant play games, but we are trying to come up with activities that will keep them interested and loving Cubs.

We are slowly getting them to realize that this venue is a 1 person talking event and they ARE learning, as are we.

We would like them to try and focus on our meetings, but we do realize that 1.Boys will be boys 2.This is all new to them. 3.Boys will be boys. We will be doing our best to move in the focusing part of the meeting, but it can be hard.

We would appreciate ANY activity materials that are sent for your Cub to be printed out, are held aside until the meeting.

We will be endeavouring to have a weekly meeting plan in place that we will strive to adhere to but as we know...the best laid plans of mice and men.....

Personal Achievment Badges

Follow this link to the Personal Achievment Badge book I have made fillable.
REMEMBER: the concept of the Canadian Path, with regards to PAB's are
the Cub PLANS - DOES - REVIEWS.....Plan, Do, Review.
While these are concepts are used in the adult world, they can make a lot of sense when learned and properly applied. Something Cubs will learn without even realizing!

Trail Cards

You may have noticed a reference to Trail Cards for Idea's

Cub Scout Trail Cards

Trail Cards are a great way to explore new ideas and activities for each Section on The Canadian Path.

Below you will find Cub Scouts Trail Cards that will help you explore the Four Elements of the Path while completing an activity. During planning meetings, use the Trail Cards to help map out how you can achieve each of the six Program Areas throughout the year.

For more information on the Trail Cards, check out the  Trail Card Infographic. (Whats on a trail card)
