Requirements at Cub Scout pack meetings

Several of the Cub Scout adventures give the Scouts opportunities to interact with other kids in their packs or to participate in some way at their pack meetings.

Examples of Adventures Involving Pack Meetings

Games Tigers Play requirement 3 is an example of Tigers interacting at pack meetings.  It reads, “Make up a new game, and play it with your family or members of your den or pack.”

Critter Care is a Bear adventure that shows an example of a Scout participating in a pack meeting. Requirement 3 is, “Make a poster about your pet or a pet you would like to own. Share your poster with your den, pack, or family.”

Neither of these adventures require that the activity be done at a pack meeting, but it is one of the options.  This is a great way to have your Cub Scout be more involved in his or her pack.

Adventure Displays at Pack Meetings

When Cub Scouts are involved in their packs, they start to get a sense that they're involved in something that's bigger than just themselves. They realize they're part of the Cub Scouting community.

Some of the requirements just have the Scouts display projects at the meetings. You can make this more meaningful for the kids by having a time during the pack meeting for them to present their project.

Ask them to tell the pack a little bit about what they did to make the project, why they chose that project, and what their favorite part of the project was.

Make sure that your den leaders, parents, and scouts know that they'll be called on for this. Have the den leaders remind the children of that before the pack meeting starts.

Encourage parents to help their child be ready for this by preparing what they'll say and practicing it before the meeting.

This will help avoid a situation where a child could be embarrassed if he or she doesn't know what to say.

How to Plan for Adventure Requirements at Pack Meetings

The best way to make sure your Cub Scouts have an opportunity to finish their adventure requirements at a pack meeting is to add it to your pack meeting plans.  Use this pack meeting planner sheet to help ensure that you have everything covered.

I appreciate the information about the boys being involved with their pack meetings. Many times I think we forget to schedule time for them to present.

While this can not be accomplished at a Pack meeting the required Council Fire adventure for Wolf requires attendance at the Pack Committee Meeting to present ideas regarding the service project they are going to complete for that adventure.

As someone who helped lead a Wolf den last year I would strongly encourage trying to get that scheduled early on in the year.
