Adventure Requirements (Tiger Handbook, page 162)

  1. Do the following:
    a. With your den or adult partner, say the Scout Law. Explain to your den one of the 12 points of the Law and why you think a knight would have the same behavior.
    b. If you have not already done so, make a code of conduct with your den that will describe how each person should act when you are all together. If your den has a code of conduct, discuss with your den the updates it might need. Vote on which actions should go in your den code of conduct.
  2. Create a den shield and a personal shield.
  3. Using recycled materials, design and build a small castle with your adult partner to display at the pack meeting.
  4. Think of one physical challenge that could be part of an obstacle course. Then help your den design a Tiger knight obstacle course. With your adult partner, participate in the course.
  5. Participate in a service project.

NOTES TO DEN LEADER

Meeting 2 will include a castle-building activity that requires recycled materials. Begin collecting these materials well in advance to have a good variety for Tigers to use.

Meeting 3 is a den outing for a service project. See the Meeting 3 Plan for preparation details, and be sure to begin planning well in advance. In advance of the outing, the leader will need to make arrangements with the outing location and confirm the outing plan with families, including transportation and any additional items they need to bring. Make sure a tour and activity plan has been submitted, if required, and activity consent forms are distributed, signed, and collected.

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