Cubs Badge Oriented Program Delivery

Break down planning as follows:

Long Term Planning

Many suggest looking at the six areas of badge work (the six stars) and focusing on two each year. Once you have that picked out, start planning on how you are going to achieve that goal in your Pack.

Medium Term Planning

With your two star goal in mind, select requirements that will work your pack toward that goal. Keep in mind that not all Cubs are able to attend every event, so try to "over deliver" and work on more than the minimum number of requirements to earn the star.

Using this site, check out any cross-badge links. There are several star requirements that are similar to individual badges. Perhaps along the way, the Cubs can can also earn some badges! This adds to the rewards of the program. Also keep in mind the Awards, very useful for Cubs that have earned the stars and want to do more.

Using this site or other resources, come up with activities that are both fun and informative that meet the objectives of each badge or star requirements. Keep track of the individual achievements so badges and star can be awarded as they are earned.

Be sure to give back to the Scouter community! Once you have found some activities that work, add them to this site. If you tried a program suggest you found here, use the Comments feature to let others know how it worked out.

Short Term Planning

No it gets specific. Each meeting needs to be planned in more detail so you can deliver a worthwhile and fun program each meeting night and stay on track with your goals.
