Cub Scout Monthly Themes 2018 and Beyond and Pack Meeting plans for every month's themes!!

The BSA is not giving us new themes but have said to choose our own. Originally, BSA said we would use the themes on a 3 year rotation, and that is what I have done here.  If this helps you to have themes picked ahead of time you are welcome to use it, or you're welcome to print out a blank one below and fill it in yourself.  Look for links below for all the themes above and other ideas for themes you could add.

Check back!  I will continue to update this page as it will continue to be a work in progress.  If you have suggestions on what to add, comment below!

If you are willing to donate ideas, we would love to add your ideas and give you credit.  We also have many PowWow books we are in the process of digitizing and adding to this blog.  We will add links below as we get them added.
