Ideas for Adventure Requirements:
- The key concept to get across when handling the flag is to show respect. There are multitudes of ceremonies available, but few 'rules' regarding the U.S. flag.
- Use Wolf Den Job Chart
- Changes can be good or bad. Some changes can use encouragement while others need correction. Each scout should come up with their own project idea, but the entire den should choose a single project to present to the pack committee.
- This project can take a few months from first idea to completion. Communicate with the committee chair to arrange a time for the den to visit and present their project idea. - this may take a couple of months lead time. Then, the actual planning and execution of the project will take even longer.
- Invite a community servant to your den meeting or arrange a den visit to his/her place of work. Other roles include park ranger, government official, paramedic, or food shelf manager.
- At your pack leader meetings, remember to discuss what projects, skits, songs, ... each den plans to bring to upcoming pack meetings so the Cubmaster is aware.
