Adventure Boxes Get Cubs Advancing Has your pack/den ordered its Adventure Boxes? Each box is a curated collection of instructions and materials to help an individual Scout earn his or her next rank, conveniently shipped to you. There are two boxes for every Cub Scout rank: one to help a Scout earn the rank for their grade level and another to earn elective Adventures. To learn more and order Adventure Boxes for each Scout in your pack, visit this page on our website.
