Current Issue of Baloo's Bugle

Baloo's Bugle that it is being reimagined and made more relevant for the current Cub Scout program.  

Baloo's Bugle will return for the 2018-2019 Scouting Year


A great "THANK YOU SO MUCH!" from the Project Team to Christopher Hopkins, Chief Information Officer (Director of Communications), Michigan Crossroads Council and his team for putting together this generic video introducing Family Scouting to families unaware or unknowledgeable about the program...

He removed the Council-specific items from this version and provided it to us so we may add it to our video archive as well as to provide within our Cub Scouting area within USSSP's massive amount of reference and resource material.

Thank you again very much for assisting Scouters and families!!
