 Note to Parents
  1. Your Den Leader will track the Den Activities and record them in Scoutbook.
  2. You should use the Scout Handbook to track each of the Adventures done at home.  There are places to "Sign Off" on each activity in the handbook. 
  3. Start a Scout Folder to store papers and projects as your scout completes them.
  4. Any activity that requires your scout to do something such as (make a list, draw a poster, record an activity etc.) needs to be show to the DL to receive credit for the item.
  5. Bring the Handbook (and folder) to a Den meeting to have your family activities recorded by the Den Leader.
Our Pack uses "Scoutbook" software to track the your scouts advancements.  This software is a "web app" and can be accessed from any device that gets an internet connection such as a smartphone, computer, laptop, tablet or iPad. You, as the parent, have access to view the items recorded for your scout. It is up to you to make sure what you have turned in and what was done in the den meeting was recorded correctly.
We also use Scoutbook to purchase appropriate badges and awards.  Make sure you are getting proper credit (by working with your Den Leader) and the recognition will come at each of the Pack Meetings.  Scoutbook will track your child's progress for as long as they are in the Pack.
