Thank you all for the responses. When I started in Sept., I didn't think there was any way I could cover the 12 characteristics and get the boys through there Wolf patch requirements with once a month meetings. So I set up twice a month meetings. This worked out well, and all boys received there Wolf patch. However, the rest of the dens meet once a month, the Pack does not follow the suggested themes, or do any den planning at the beginning of the year. They also don't require wearing complete leader uniforms, and no uniforms are required for women leaders. I've been through leader training, but it does no good when the Pack leadership ignore a lot of the rules. Thanks again.
