This position-specific course for Cub Scout pack and Boy Scout Troop committee members is intended to provide members with the basic information they need to support a Scouting Unit and conduct a successful program. This course is conducted based on the five parts of a typical unit committee meeting and is best when delivered at one time to all members of the unit’s committee.
The purpose of the Pack Committee Challenge is to familiarize pack committee members with the various responsibilities of the individual members of the committee as well as the committee as a whole. The goal is to help each pack committee work as a team to improve the Scouting experience for adult and youth members.

Troop Committee Challenge has been developed to help troop committee members better understand their roles and responsibilities and help them deliver the promise of Scouting.
