HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE
Every great project starts with a great plan. The same goes for
Scouting. By following our proven Ideal Year of Scouting plan, you
can expect to see…

•   A stronger program for your youth at less personal cost to you

•   Increased parental involvement

•   More youth camping

•   Better retention

•   More funding with less time spent fundraising

•   A simpler, easier and more enjoyable Scouting program

The Ideal Year of Scouting follows the BSA’s Journey to Excellence
recognition program. Think of Journey to Excellence (JTE) as your
scorecard for Scouting success. The 2018 Journey to Excellence
scorecard is located on the next page and will help you identify,
quantify, track and report key factors to make the program you
deliver even better for your Scouts.

During the spring of 2018, work through this book to set your
goals and make your plans. You should have a clear picture of the
program you will offer from August, through the school year.

Over the next few pages we’ll guide you through the Journey to
Excellence criteria and set you on the path to your Ideal Year of
Scouting. If you have questions or get stuck along the way, don’t
worry…we’ve got you covered!

This guide and additional online resources are available at
www.crossroadsbsa.org/IYOS.

You can also contact us at (317) 813-7125 and we’ll connect you
with a Scouting professional who can help you achieve your Ideal
Year of Scouting.

Scouting's Journey to Excellence
                                            2018 Pack Planning, Performance, and Recognition

     Journey to Excellence uses a balanced approach to measure performance. It guides program planning before the year begins, monitors activities for
     continuous improvement during the year, and recognizes performance at the end of the year. In planning your strategy, use actual numbers from the
     previous year to guide your performance improvement goal planning. The period for measuring performance will be the calendar year.

                                                               Planning and Budget Measures
                  The pack has a program plan and budget that is reviewed at all pack committee meetings, and the pack follows BSA policies relating to
                  fundraising and fiscal management as found on the Unit Money-Earning Application form and any other publication that the council has
           1
                  developed for fundraising and fiscal management. Program plans and budget are reviewed with den leaders and parents at the start of
                  the program year. The pack's program plan should be shared with the unit commissioner.

                                                                     Membership Measures
                  A formal recruitment event is conducted and new members are registered by October 31, 2018. On December 31, 2018, the pack has an
           2      increase in the number of youth members as compared to the number registered on December 31, 2017. A membership growth plan
                  template can be found at www.scouting.org/membership.

                  Number of youth members on the most recent charter renewal (A) divided by the number of youth registered at the end of the prior
           3      charter year (B) minus any age-outs (C). Total = (A) / (B-C). Age-outs are youth who are too old to reregister as Cub Scouts. If the pack
                  has a December charter, use the one expiring on December 31, 2017; otherwise use the one expiring during 2018.

                  Hold at least two joint activities with a troop or troops, and have graduating boys register with a troop. "The Scouting Adventure" for
           4      second-year Webelos is described in the Webelos Scout Handbook. If the pack has no second-year Webelos Scouts, this requirement is
                  met at the Bronze level.

                                                                        Program Measures
                  Total number of Cub Scouts advancing at least one rank (Bobcat, Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, Arrow of Light) during the calendar
           5      year (A), divided by the number of boys registered at the end of the year (B). Advancement = (A) / (B). The pack is encouraged to use
                  Scoutbook to track each individual boy's advancements.

                  The pack has activities and field trips in the outdoors, which could include outdoor pack meetings, hikes, family campouts, parades,
           6
                  outdoor service projects, etc. All dens have the opportunity to participate.

                  Cub Scouts attend an in-council or out-of-council Cub Scout day camp, family camp, and/or Cub Scout resident camp in 2018. STEM
           7      programs either as a day camp or resident camp are also included. All levels are total number of different Cub Scouts attending (A)
                  divided by total number of Cub Scouts registered in the pack as of June 30, 2018 (B). Total = (A) / (B).

                  The pack participates in at least two service projects during the year and enters them on the Service Hours website or through
           8
                  Scoutbook. The projects may be completed as joint projects with other organizations. At least one project is conservation-oriented.

                  Have at least eight pack meetings or activities within the past 12 months, with one of those meetings being to review the pack's program
           9      plans and asking for parental involvement in the pack. Den meetings start by October 31, 2018, and all dens meet at least twice each
                  month within the past year. Pack earns the Summertime Pack Award.

                                                               Volunteer Leadership Measures
                  The pack has a Cubmaster, an assistant, and a committee of at least three members. Ideally, the chartered organization representative
                  should not be dual registered as one of the committee members. The pack identifies persons for next year's leadership for existing dens,
          10
                  including Cubmaster, Den Leaders, and Webelos Den Leaders prior to the start of the program year. All dens have a registered leader by
                  October 31, 2018.
                  All leaders have completed youth protection training. Bronze: Cubmaster, an assistant, or pack trainer has completed position-specific
                  training. Silver: Bronze, plus the Cubmaster and den leaders have completed position-specific training or, if new, will complete within
          11
                  three months of joining. Gold: Silver, plus 2/3 of committee members (including chartered organization representative) have completed
                  training.

        Scoring the pack's performance: To determine the pack's performance level, you will use the above information to determine the points earned
        for each of the 11 criteria and then add those individual point scores to determine a composite score. Count only the highest point total achieved in
        any one criterion. Bronze level requires earning at least 525 points in at least 7 criteria, Silver level requires earning points in at least 8 criteria and
        800 points, and Gold level requires earning points in at least 8 criteria, meeting at leaset bronze standards in outdoor activities, and earning ar least
        1,050 total points.
