This page provides links that give an overview of each Rank’s Adventure Requirements.  This is a summary only and full details should be found in the Scout Handbooks. This page also lists any requirements that could be done as part of a Pack Meeting or during our Fall campout, or any camp out, but the fall one is emphasized as we will have Boy Scouts teaching Scout skills that relate to some of these.  Note that the boyscouttrail links below are not official BSA sites, but usually have accurate information.

Starting in the 2015-2016 school year the BSA implemented program implemented a new set of requirements organized into Adventures for each Rank. The requirements can be found at the following document. While this gives a good outline, a Cub Scout Handbook should be purchased for a complete details of the requirements for earning each rank.  (Note above links for each den should have the same information)
