Activites that can be Done at Pack Meeting
Author Notes - Jim Richardson
- Many of the requirements have the scout to "Make" or "Display" something. (I listed a few here, but there are many more I didn't list.) Any of these things would be great to show and tell about during Cub Pack Meeting. (Especially the meeting where they receive the award earned from their actions.)
- Many of the requirements have the scout "Tell" their Den about something, but in most cases the Pack could be substituted instead.
- Cub Scout Pack is also a great time for a Cub Scout to tell the other Scouts in the Pack about something he did or learned while completing the requirements for a badge. (This helps the other boys see how much fun it is and also how easy it can be.)
