Great Salt Lake Council

From Karen, a friend and a CS RT Commissioner

They have a lot of free craft info for crafters and scouts - tigers, cubs, boy scouts, girl scouts, Blue and Gold, etc.

They also have a game section.  I didn't look at that section tonight.  Figured I check it out later.  I was surprised to see the site still up and running.  This site is affiliated with Walgreens.

Another site up and running from a while ago.  This site also has kids craft ideas.

The two craft stores have kids craft areas on their sites.  Free of charge.  Directions, pictures, and of course ask you to come purchase the items from their store.  But they do have some cute craft ideas that you can direct people to.

A great collection of songs.  He has a file of songs for Roundtable, and a book of songs he put together for Wood Badge.  Plus some other great Scouting material


Arrow of Light Ceremonies –

Need a new AOL Ceremony??  Lewis posted this site on a Cub Roundtable Discussion Group.  It has 25 AOL ceremonies and ideas on how to create your own.


Cub Scout Achievement, Elective, Rank, and Academics and Sports Trackers on their own website!!


A lot of websites carry the Excel based trackers she developed but have old and outdated versions. So Roxanne developed her own web page that will always carry the most recent versions (with all known bugs fixed and many enhancements recommended by users).

She recently revised the Cub Scout spreadsheets to –

ü     Include the Outdoor Activity Award

ü     Make them easier to work with in OpenOffice.

ü     Track Tiger beads and handle up to 15 tigers.

Please direct your den leaders or advancement chairs to the website for the most recent versions of the trackers. (feel free to add a link to your pack's website if that is helpful!)


Thank you Roxanne!! CD

PS – She, also, has Girl Scout and Boy Scout Trackers!!!
