Cub Scout Cyber Chip Requirements
Updated: Oct 25, 2020
The Cyber Chip Certificate should be renewed annually by all Cub Scouts. Den Leaders should be sure to encourage meaningful conversations (either as a Den or within each Scout's family) regarding Internet safety. It is important to recognize that the sooner something is taught and implemented, the more it becomes habit or culture to our Scouts. We want them to always be safe and aware of risks online even after they advance to their respective Troops.

Discuss with your unit leader the acceptable standards and practices for using allowed electronic devices, such as phones and games, at your meetings and other Scouting events.
