I thought that MedWise is a Scouts BSA/Venturing/Sea Scouts only program (i.e. not aimed at Cub Scout aged youth). Is there a Cub Scout version now?

BSA Award


Fifty percent of teens begin to self-medicate with OTC medicines in their homes as early as age 11. Designed to complement existing Scouts BSA and Venturing program materials, this program consists of four 15-minute exercises that can be led at regularly scheduled meetings.

Leader Manual, November 2018: “This curriculum has been prepared specifically for ages 11-17 and
each lesson must be followed specifically as written.”
