Cub Scout Adventure Boxes
The Crossroads of America is proud to excited to design and launch our Cub Scout Adventure Boxes. Each rank specific box is filled with nearly everything you need to complete five elective Cub Scout Adventures at home and kickstart your Scouts advancement to the next rank this summer.
Within each box you will find a copy of the Scout Oath and Law, and other assorted items which will help you to complete the adventure requirements at home as a family. Items may include craft kits, magic sets, and other small science equipment which makes shopping for supplies unnecessary. Each box also comes with activity specific written and video instructions so you can easily participate with your child.
Each Adventure Box is designed for one child and will be available for limited contact pickup at Camp Belzer in Indianapolis or shipped directly to your home after June 1st.
While these boxes are geared toward members of Cub Scouting, the activities involved are fun and available for all children!

Cub Scout Camps – 2020
Cub Scout camp will be very different in 2020. North Star Units should look at the image of the flyer and start planning for the 2020 summer. Will your Unit go on multiple weeks so parents can attend different camps? Will you divide and have dens go the week that works best for them?
More information is expected soon. This is just a heads up on things to come 🙂
