SCOUTING FROM HOME – Wolf Activities

Hello Wolf Scouts,

I know you are all staying safe with your families at home. It’s a big change to how we normally do things and is sometimes inconvenient, but the most important thing is that everyone stays safe! Even though we all must stay home, for now, we can still do scouting – Its called SCOUTING FROM HOME.

Some scouting can be done by you alone and some activities can be done with your family and your parents. If you feel like you want to take a break from school work at home, check-in here and look for some fun scout activities to do.

For the week of March 30 – April 4th – Paws On The Path – Do #s 1-5 6 & 7 are optional.

1.Show you are prepared to hike safely in any outdoor setting by putting together the Cub Scout Six Essentials to take along on your hike.
2.Tell what the buddy system is and why we always use it in Cub Scouts. Describe what you should do if you get separated from your group while hiking.
3.Choose the appropriate clothing to wear on your hike based on the expected weather.
4.Before hiking, recite the Outdoor Code and the Leave No Trace Principles for Kids with your Parent. (This may be combined with Requirement 3 of The Call of the Wild Adventure.) After hiking, discuss how you showed respect for wildlife.
5.Go on a 1-mile hike with your den or family. Find two interesting things that you’ve never seen before and discuss with your den or family.
6.Name two birds, two insects, and/or two other animals that live in your area. Explain how you identified them.
7.Draw a map of an area near where you live using common map symbols. Show which direction is north on your map
