  1. Wonderful ideas, 5yearscouter... thanks for sharing them! Angela
  2. Pack362Den1, do you really think they are going to change the order of the values, like moving Faith to match up with Scout Sunday? Where did you hear that... is it a nationwide thing, or just for your Pack? I would be a little surprised, because even though the BSA designates the 1st Sunday before February 8th to be Scout Sunday, not all churches recognize Scout Sunday on that day, or even in that month.

  3. Does anyone know if the monthly Core Values that were started last year be the same for the upcoming year?

I'm so pleased to have found this forum. Thanks again! Angela
  6. Hello everyone, I am a first-time Tiger Cub DL with 9 boys in my den, 2 of whom are my twin sons. The boys completed their Tiger Cub badge requirements, and I was planning to finish out the year by doing Electives and working on Belt Loops and Pins. However, a parent in my Den told me that I should now start working on the Wolf badge requirements. Is this correct? This parent has an older son who is a Bear in our Pack, and apparently they have begun working on their Webelos I requirements.
