Boys may join at any time during the year – they are never ‘behind.’
Wolf Den meetings are built around “Adventures,” or units of learning activities. Wolf Adventures are:
- Call of the Wild (Camping and outdoor skills)
- Council Fire (Community service)
- Duty to God Footsteps (Non-denominational and personal)
- Howling at the Moon (Communication)
- Paws on the Path (Hiking)
- Running with the Pack (Physical Fitness)
Wolves also work with their parent(s) or as a Den to complete one elective Adventure chosen from a group of options.
This year, leaders will incorporate the high points of each Adventure into the outdoor-only format we have adopted for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic. Every effort will be made to ensure the boys cover the principle components of the Wolves curriculum, with all participants doing their best* to cover the material while staying safe and united as a community.
* Do Your Best is the Cub Scout motto and it applies to boys, leaders and parents alike.
