InStep (In support of Scouters, Teachers, Educators, and Parents)
InSTEP is a program designed to assist Cub Scout den leaders who have boys of different grades/ages/ranks in the same den. The den meeting plans show how each Cub Scout can complete work on his own grade-appropriate advancement requirements during the same den meeting. These plans are created by volunteers of Sam Houston Area Council.
New packs with only a few boys of each age group may find the InSTEP plans useful in getting started. As membership grows and individual grade-based dens formed, den leaders may then prefer to use traditional Cub Scout resources such as BSA's Den Meeting Plans and the Den Leader Guides for each rank.
