Webelos Scouts will learn in this adventure that few things ever remain the same: Information from the past has helped shape our world today, and information from today will help shape the future.


  • Seeing how actions of the past have influenced the present
  • Understanding that they can help make productive changes in the future

ADVENTURE REQUIREMENTS (Webelos Handbook, page 464)

Do all of these:

  1. Create a record of the history of Scouting and your place in that history.
  2. With the help of your den leader, parent, or guardian and with your choice of media, go on a virtual journey to the past and create a timeline.
  3. Create your own time capsule.


Scouts may do this adventure with their families or with the den. If it is done with the den, you may want to invite parents to attend both meetings and assist with activities.

Scouts will need to decide in advance whether their record of Scouting history (requirement 1) will be created electronically or manually.

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


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.
