Loyal listener, @Howard_Chalmers had some questions about changes to the Lions program, now that it’s no longer a pilot program, but a bona fide, real-life program of the BSA. Christine McDanal the Council Lion Champion for the National Capital Area Council in Washington, DC. Will assist us with everything we need to know about the new Lions program. So, if you’re a Lions’ Den Leader or Cubmaster who now has Lion dens in your pack meeting, joins us for all the updates now that Lions have moved from pilot program to a full-fledged BSA program.
By now your dens and packs have already gone through forming and storming and should be in the norming phase of group and team development, so now is a good time to discuss Cub Scout advancement. Joining us for this episode is Missy Campbell, Cubmaster of Pack 157 in the Great Smoky Mountain Council in Knoxville, Tennessee.
An email came into the CubCast mailbox from Katherine Drahmann who asked for an episode on resolving conflicts between den members. She points out that sometimes events occur outside the Den or Pack meeting and are then continued in the meeting. Joining us for this discussion on resolving conflict is Grace Davidson. Grace has been a very active volunteer with the Circle 10 Council in Dallas, Texas, serving as everything from den leader, Director of Day Camp, and Den Chief Trainer to Merit Badge Counselor and Troop Chaplain, and everything in between. We are so happy that she found time to join us for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion on conflict resolution in a den and pack.
School access is so much more than getting permission to pass out fliers about Scouting. We invited the BSA’s Education Relationships Committee chair, Ken King, to the show to talk with us about Adopt-a-School, Report to the District, and all the other resources you have at your disposal to grow membership.
