ADVENTURE REQUIREMENTS (Bear Handbook, page 90)

  1. Play a challenge game or initiative game with the members of your den. Take part in a reflection after the game.
  2. Working with the members of your den, organize a Cub Scout carnival and lead it at a special event.
  3. Help younger Cub Scouts take part in one of the events at the Cub Scout carnival.
  4. After the Cub Scout carnival, discuss with the members of your den and your den leader what went well, what could be done better, and how everyone worked together to make the event a success.
  5. Make and present an award to one of the adults who helped you organize the activities at the Cub Scout carnival.


This adventure culminates in a Cub Scout carnival. The carnival can take place as part of your monthly pack meeting. Planning in advance of the event will ensure that it will be a success. There is no outing associated with this adventure; the implementation takes place at the pack meeting.

The goal is to help the Cub Scouts take on as much of the responsibility for leading activities at the pack meeting as possible. Practicing in advance with simple and enjoyable games will prepare everyone for success.

Because this adventure culminates in a pack meeting event, you will need to coordinate with the Cubmaster. If your den is small, enlist the aid of parents and/or Boy Scouts to help at the pack meeting.


To get you started in delivering fun and engaging meetings, complete Den Meeting Plans are available here on the Learning Library for the Backyard Jungle and Games Tigers Play adventures. To obtain Den Meeting Plans for all other adventures, Den Leader Guides are available at your local Scout Shop, online at scoutstuff.org, or as an eBook through Amazon.
