Scouting Tech: Bear Den Slides and Meeting Resources

Well, we’ve made it to 2021! While there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel, many units continue to encounter hurdles for meeting face-to-face. With winter weather bearing down on much of the U.S., outdoor meetings are a little less convenient, especially for Cubs.

So, while we’re all still navigating a very different year in programming, many of us are trying to find ways to present Cub Scout adventures in a virtual setting. Having been a den leader for many years, I have been working on updating and converting my archived materials to help YOU plan a full year of virtual programming.

Take a breath. I’ve got you.

Below you’ll find a link to a Google Slide file entitled “Look Wider Still: Bear Den Slides & Meeting Organization Tools Master File”. This file contains 43 slides full of adventure requirements and resources like external links, embeddable (is that a word) YouTube videos, and downloadable/printable files I’ve created to keep your Scouts on track this year.

To use it:

  • Make a copy of this file by clicking File > Make a Copy > Entire Presentation.
  • Make a copy of your presentation for every meeting, editing the content with the included resources however you’d like.
  • Give your presentations meaningful names, like “October 16 2020 Bear Meeting Baloo the Builder”.  This will make it easy to find in your Slides collection and to share with others.
  • Make copies of / download the linked Google Drive files within as well!

You can then pick and choose the slides you’d like to use, deleting those that you won’t need for your specific meeting adventure. Easy!

Best of Luck!

As always, I share these files in the hopes that it helps give you back some of your free time and helps ease the stress of the planning process. I’d love to know how you used the Bear Den Slides & Meeting Organization Tools and what you thought about the resources. Did this help you reclaim a few spare minutes? Did it make den planning a breeze this year? What would you add or change?
