Wolf Cub Program Schedule

Wolf Cub Program Schedule

> > > Triple Prizes < < <

The Wolf program runs from September to May. If the pack awards the Wolf rank badge at the BlueGold dinner in February, that gives less than 6 months to fulfill the requirements. Our pack did that a couple years and it was quite frustrating for the den leaders. We now present the Wolf rank badges at the April pack meeting. Some dens start right into their Wolf program in May so they are active over the summer - if new scouts join in September, that makes it more difficult for them.

2 den meetings each month - (2nd Thursday at 6:30pm for 1 hr, 4th Sunday at 2pm for 2 hrs)
1 pack meeting each month - (3rd Thursday at 7pm)

The Den Leader is responsible for planning activities for the month's den meeting and hosting the den meeting. The den leader uses a Den Meeting Planner document to organize the plan.
We used an adult Guide to help lead activities at each meeting. Your den may work better with no Guide or with having each Guide do all the planning and leading of the month's meetings - it depends on your adult participation levels.
A blank version of this schedule document is available here.
September Paul Pack Mtg: Registration and Program start. Tell the scouts when and where den meetings will be held.

I am a new Wolf den leader with my grandson and your info is a great help. Last time I was a den
leader was 33 years ago with my son.  Wish I had
your support back then. Keep up the good work.

I may become a Wolf Den Leader for the next season.  I am researching on what I need to do get my Tigers (which they crossover to Wolf on the 19th) working on the Wolf stuff.  Would like to start in June.  What is the requirements for Wolf re: meetings?  Like Tigers, we had 2 Den Meetings, 1 Go See it and 1 Pack meeting.  Is that the same for Wolf?  Also, I am disabled and use a wheelchair, if you know of any good sites of others who are disabled and have been Leaders, would love to hear how they did things.

Also, your site is awesome.  Got alot of info from it.

Thank you in advance.

@JT - Thank you for considering a volunteer role in the Pack.  As you can see from the schedule above, our den had a monthly Pack meeting, Den meeting, and outdoor Den activity.  If you added a 2nd Den meeting, that would be great.

I googled around for sites that might be of interest to you, but found none.  Maybe someone else will have more luck.
