As a Cubmaster, you are the key leader for “making your Pack go.”  In my training role in the council, I want to do what I can to help you be the best Cubmaster you can be.

In the past week, I’ve updated the old “Southeast Wisconsin Council” informal training website, to better serve all Scouters in the Three Harbors Council.  Things designed to help you, include:

  • ONLINE SCOUTING RESOURCES – a listing of internet resources by Donna Jaworski, a member of the Cub Scout Roundtable Staff in the Gateway District (Kenosha).
  • PACK AND DEN ADVANCEMENT – Resources to help your Cub Scouts be recognized for what they do, and to make “advancement organization” easier for Den Leaders.
  • TRAITS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL CUBMASTERS – What do Cubmasters do to have very successful Packs.  These ideas came from Cubmasters in the Three Harbors Council.

Just one last reminder, I’m offering BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) from 8 AM – 5 PM on Saturday, April 28 at Wadewitz Nature Center in Waterford.  If you have anyone that you want to involve in leading a Pack camping trip, BALOO is a great course for them to take. ($12 fee, lunch included)

I’m offering Cubmaster Leader Specific on Saturday, April 28 from 5-8 PM at Wadewitz.  This course if for Cubmasters and Assistant Cubmasters.  Fee is $8 (dinner included).  If you and your spouse want to both attend and call it a “dinner-date,” I’m good with that.  Please email me if you are going to attend CM Leader Specific, so you can get the pre-course homework assignment for this course.

Sign up at the Milwaukee Service Center for these courses.  Download the course flier at

Other upcoming courses:

  • OWL (Outdoor Webelos Leader Training) April 20-21 at Camp Erin
  • BALOO – May 5 at IMR

Yours in Scouting,
