Who should attend Cub Leader Pow Wow? Everyone! All registered adult Cub Scout Leaders, potential leaders, and interested parents. That would include: Cubmasters and assistant Cubmasters, Tiger den leaders, assistants and partners, Cub and Webelos leaders and their assistants, pack committee members and chairpersons. Oh, let’s not forget charter organization representatives and parents, too. Even if you are not registered, but interested in Cub Scouting … you're invited too!  Training sessions offer relevant topics for every Cub Scout position to help you make your Cub Scout program more fun for the boys ... and you too!


Course Offerings:  Select from a list of over 35 offerings.  Courses will be filled on a first come first serve basis and we will do our best to accomodate all of your selections.


Pow Wow Thumb Drive:  Pow Wow features a jam-packed resource thumb drive as part of the registration fee. The drive contains a collection of handouts from this year’s instructors and common Scouting forms. This allows you to take home notes from the whole event in one packet, and is a great resource for your den and pack! By providing a thumb drive (rather than a printed book), we have been able to cut the Pow Wow registration fee in half and also provide lots more support material than previously possible.


Midway Display Area: Not only are there classes at Pow Wow, but there’ll be a number of outside organizations sharing opportunities for den and pack activities. Visit the Midway to get information for activities that your den or pack can participate in. Also get information here about summer camp, product sales for fundraisers, training opportunities, and other programs.


Class Schedules: You will create your class schedule as part of the on-line registration process. You will select the classes you want to take and can see the availability as you register.


What to Wear and Bring: Wear your uniform and comfortable shoes, perhaps a light sweater.  Bring a bag or daypack to carry handouts and other trophies and trinkets you pick up. Many people bring cameras or tape recorders. At the very least, bring a notepad and pencil.
