      • Den meetings are important because:
          • Some requirements have to be done with the Den

          • Interaction with their peers in a positive, goal-oriented environment
          • Leadership and service
    • Cub Scouting Tips
      • You MUST work on Cub Scouts at home if you want your boy to earn badges and awards.
        • Even if your boy gets one thing signed off per den meeting, he might not get the badge: (ex: wolf has 58 reqs)
        • Many of the reqs indicate that they should be done with the family.
      • Know what’s in the book
        • Many of your normal family activities will count for CS reqs if you are aware of them.
        • If you know what is in the book, you can plan FHE or other activities that will fulfill requirements.
