After School Program Resources

In the Crossroads of America Council After School Scouting Program, we strive to develop resources to compliment those from the National Council. On this page, we have compiled local and national content that may be useful to Scouts and Scouters in our program or other non-traditional units.

Curriculum

In support of Scouters, leaders, teachers, educators, partnering adults, and parents, the After School Scouting Program developed a program guide designed to assist Cub Scout den leaders who have Scouts of different grades/ages/ranks in the same den. The den meeting plans show how each Cub Scout can complete work on their own grade/rank-appropriate advancement requirements during the same den meeting. These plans are created by staff in the After School Scouting Program of Crossroads of America Council. New packs with only a few youth of each age group may find the program guide useful.

How to use the program guide:
  1. Pick which “Adventure” you choose to utilize.
  2. Review the Overview of the Adventure. The overview indicates how many sessions needed, which requirement met according to rank, the supplies needed, and what copies needed (the sheets to be copied are included in the sessions).
  3. The links below will open a PDF ready to be printed.
  4. To provide feedback, please contact one of our professional staff members.
