Den Pack Coordination

Recommended Posts

Has anyone put together a summary of all of the Den (rank) requirements which have to be done with the Pack - e.g. where they say you have present something at a Pack meeting?

 

I am getting ready to plan for next year and don't ant to reinvent the wheel figuring out what all the dens will need time for at Pack meetings.

 

Thanks,

Unfortunately, the forum doesn't have a good mechanism for an attachment, so this will be long, but this is what I put together for my pack and for a cub scout roundtable on the subject.  These are organized by activity type not by adventures - thus easier for a pack leader to see what could be covered for different types of pack events.
