Den Meeting Outline

  • Arrival Activity
    Have a simple activity ready that scouts have something to do while waiting for others: tie knots, play jenga, fold origami, set up for the activity, etc…
  • Opening Ceremony
    At scheduled starting time, open with a simple flag ceremony and recite the Pledge, Cub Scout Promise, and/or Law of the Pack.
  • Update Advancement Poster
    Scouts bring their books and show the den leader what they did at home.  Den Leader ceremoniously updates the big advancement poster with everyone watching.
  • Main Activity
    Pick one fun group activity from the Tiger/Wolf/Bear/Webelos book to complete (or start) all together.
  • Game
    If possible, play an active outdoor game: kickball, soccer, hide and seek, sharks and minnows, relay race, see here for more ideas.
  • Closing
    Ask the scouts to complete one or more requirements at home in the next month, have them circle it in the book.  End the meeting clearly with something distinctive: salute the flag, give a den cheer, say “do your best”, etc…
