The next three years promise to be exciting for Scouting as all three of our traditional programs will be updated based on several years of volunteer-led research and development!
Venturing is first up in 2014 with a totally new program and recognition approach focusing on progressive development in adventure, leadership, and service to others and personal growth.
Then in 2015, Cub Scouting will be updated with a new Adventure-based advancement system, activities that are more active and more aligned with the Aims/Mission, Tiger Cub becomes simply - Tiger, with a new image, and the earning of the Webelos badge no longer being required for the Arrow of Light.
And then in 2016, additions and revisions will be rolled-out to the Boy Scout requirements, including making Scout a rank.
To keep everyone up to date with all of the upcoming changes, the BSA has created a special Program Updates page in scouting.org.
