The 2023-24 Wolves Den is a terrific group of 5 boys led by Matt Antalek, Jeff DeInnocentis and Tom Comeau. The den meets every other Tuesday evening from 6:15 to 7:30 in the Luther Burbank Cafeteria beginning September 12th. Newcomers may join at any time during the year – they are never ‘behind.’
Wolf Den meetings are built around “Adventures,” or units of learning. In every activity, boys do their best* to earn Adventure-specific Belt Loops which they can proudly add to their uniform belt as they progress towards earning their Wolf Badge at the conclusion of the year.
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.
* Do Your Best is the Cub Scout motto and it applies to boys, leaders and parents alike.

Air mattresses are recommended as the accommodations are wood floor or industrial carpet.
