One of the items available to Scouts that some Packs consider optional is the Boy's Life Magazine. Our Pack feels so strongly about the benefit from this publication that we actually include a subscription for every single Cub Scout with their membership fees.
The official magazine of The Boy Scouts of America, Boy's Life Magazine also has an awesome web presence. Check them out here.
Their website has fun interactive pages with silly quizzes, instructional videos (want to learn to tie a knot?), gear spotlights, recipes, and so much more! It's definitely one to bookmark and add to their "parent approved" lists for them to visit over and over again!
