Welcome to the 2021-22 Scout Life Mini-Mag

Below you’ll find links to the all-digital Scout Life mini-magazine.

What is Scout Life mini-mag? It’s all you need to know about joining Cub Scouting and subscribing to Scout Life magazine. As the BSA’s official youth magazine, Scout Life helps Scouts succeed in the program and in life. Whether they need leadership tips, support on issues like bullying, or just some great stories and jokes, Scouts will find it all inside Scout Life.

Parents! Share the mini-mag with your kids. Read with them. Learn with them. Laugh with them. Subscribe to Scout Life here for just $12 per year.

Scout leaders! The Scout Life mini-mag recruiting tool is available in a digital format. Read the mini-mag online or download and print it. Scout Life magazine helps your Scouting unit and your Scouts excel. Research shows that boys and girls who subscribe advance further and stay in Scouting longer than those who don’t.

Here are some tips to get the most out of your mini-mag and recruit more youth:

  • Get mini-mags into the hands of your unit membership chairs for distribution at Scout nights, kid talks, craft fairs, field days or other community events.
  • Offer a mini-mag or two to current Cub Scouts and older Scouts, encouraging them to share it with non-Scouting friends.
  • Use the mini-mag in addition to your recruitment fliers for a stronger marketing effort.
  • Keep a cache of mini-mags in the council office and with each district and unit membership chair or district executive to use in recruiting throughout the year.
  • Make sure all your youth subscribe to Scout Life, the magazine that has been proven to help youth advance and to increase retention of members.
