Completing Cub Scout Rank Requirements While Camping

Cub Scout Requirements Camping

Cub Scouts always enjoy a fun camp out!  As den leaders, this is a wonderful opportunity to complete some rank adventure requirements.

But if we haven't reviewed all of the requirements looking for activities that can be done on Cub Scout camp outs, we may miss out on the opportunity.

That's why I compiled lists of activities by rank that can be done without equipment during a camp out that will satisfy adventure requirements. 

So that it's easier for you to use, I'm making the lists available in a pdf format.  There is a master list of all ranks as well as one for each individual rank.

But these activities can be done anywhere!  We give them to den leader (or den shepherds) at Cub Scout day camp. They're perfect for the Scouts to do whenever they have a few minutes.

Here are some examples of the activities that are in these lists.

Tigers can complete requirement 4 of their Earning Your Stripes adventure.  It's “Talk with your parent, guardian, other caring adult, or with your den about polite language. Learn how to shake hands and introduce yourself.”

Wolves can “tell what the buddy system is and why we always use it in Cub Scouting. Describe what you should do if you get separated from your group while hiking” for requirement 2 of Paws on the Path.

When they “share at least two jokes with members of your den to make them laugh,” Bears can mark off requirement 5 of the elective adventure, Roaring Laughter.

Webelos and Arrows of Light can easily do requirement 2 of the Build My Own Hero adventure by describing how citizens can be heroes in their communities.


We all know that busy kids are less likely to get into trouble!  🙂  I love having quick and simple activities ready to implement at a moment's notice.

I'm a Wolf den leader and am always on the lookout for ideas for our den meetings and helping the cubs meet their requirements.
