Resources for Cubs and Pack Scouters

We all know the adventures described in the Jungle Book! The characters are a young boy and jungle animals that children can relate to and together they embark on exciting adventures whilst learning new skills. The adults running the Cub Packs are called Pack Scouters with the person in charge being the Akela – as in the jungle book’s leader of the wolf pack.

There are hundreds of resources available for Pack Scouters. Some can be purchased at your Regional Scout Office, whereas others have been shared here.

If you have more resources to share, please share, share, share! Categorise the information under Cubs to make it easier to find by your fellow wolves, Akela’s, Baloo’s and Pack Scouters. Tag them according to games, activities, yarns, programme ideas, etc…
