The Future of Scouting


For the last several years, the Boy Scouts of America has been pursuing a strategic, national plan on how to update the Cub Scout program.  In late 2009 volunteers met with national BSA staff and leaders in the field of child development to discuss “What Today’s Youth Want and Need”.

From that kickoff meeting, the BSA has been designing the changes to the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.  Starting on June 1st, 2015, the Cub Scouts will begin to implement these changes and transition to a program designed around these core desired outcomes:

  • More Cub Scouts being active/having fun
  • Improved Webelos transition/retention
  • Simplified advancement
  • Improved connection to mission and aims

While Cub Scout leaders (our Pack and Den leadership) need to be most familiar with the upcoming changes, everyone with an interest is invited to learn more about them. Therefore the Northern Lights District will be holding a roundtable meeting in March to explain all of the updates.

Northern Lights District Roundtable Event

When: Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Time: 7:00pm
Where: LDS Church, 2401 Legacy Drive, Plano
Who: All Unit Leaders, Den Leaders, and all interested parents

Additionally, the BSA recently held a series of webcasts on January 17th to outline the changes, and these webcasts are available on the web for anyone interested.  To learn more, please visit the BSA program updates page at and come to the District Roundtable meeting in March.
