Yearly Activities

Youth Protection

To realize the potential of Scouting, it is critical that we take all possible steps to create and maintain a safe environment for all who participate. That involves understanding personal boundaries and knowing what appropriate behaviors are in Scouting. To help establish and maintain a safe environment we complete yearly Youth Protection Training.

Discussing Youth Protection topics can be challenging and uncomfortable and as a Pack we cover these topics at a high level in our September Pack Meeting. We understand this is a very personal matter and so we have created this page so you can complete this important activity at home. Each Den has different Youth Protection training requirements which can be found here. All scouts need to understand the content of the Youth Protection Guide.

Webelos – Here is a worksheet to assist with your training.

Cyber Safety – Today we are online more than ever before. We use technology to save us time with research, connect with others, navigate, and have fun. As young people spend more time online, safety is more important than ever. Suggestions and more information and instructional videos to help keep our scouts safe can be found at Here are additional resources you can use on bullying, gaming and public vs private info.

Once you have completed these activities appropriately for your family, please email your Den Leader or the Pack at to let them know you’ve completed the Youth Protection Training and Protect Yourself Rules Adventure.

Health Forms

Scouting requires a Health Form for scouts that participates in an overnight activity. Please complete Section A & B and return to the Cubmaster. Forms are only required once a year unless the information changes. Forms are destroyed at the end of each year.

Duty to God

In the Cub Scout program, there are required faith adventures for every rank starting with Tigers. While the faith requirements for Cub Scouts are broad and do not require adherence to any specific religion, they do require a Cub Scout to think about faith and discuss it. They also require that scouts be respectful to everyone’s religious beliefs.

For Pack 998 we recognize the very personal nature of a family’s faith and seek to foster an environment where everyone feels welcome. To achieve this we provide an overview of the Duty to God requirements to all scouts each December. Scouts and their families are then asked to review the requirements for their den and complete them at home. Once they have been completed, as appropriate for your family, you can either sign them off in Scoutbook or notify your Den Leader that the adventure has been completed.
