Everywhere we look, we see collections. A collection of plants is a garden; a collection of cows is a herd. And any group of objects that are similar and special to you counts as a collection, too. That collection tells others what you find interesting, and as you expand the collection, you gain new skills and understanding.


  • Enthusiasm for starting a collection
  • Cooperation and showing respect for others
  • Completing a task
  • Listening skills
  • A Scout is courteous. [Wolf Character Compass]

  1. Begin a collection of at least 10 items that all have something in common. Label the items and title your collection.
  2. Share your collection at a den meeting.
  3. Visit a show or museum that displays different collections or models.
  4. Create an autograph book, and get at least 10 autographs. Start with members of your den.
  5. Pick a famous living person, and write him or her a letter. In your letter, ask the person to send you an autographed photo.
  6. Play a game with your den that involves collecting.


Meeting 3 will be a den outing to a show or museum that displays different collections or models (requirement 3). You will need to schedule the outing in advance. Submit a tour and activity plan, if required, and work with families to plan transportation to and from the location. Make sure activity consent forms are distributed and signed.

See the Appendix for optional den meeting activities, including openings, gatherings, and closings.
