RATIONALE FOR ADVENTURE

This adventure will promote physical fitness and good health through games and other fun activities.

TAKEAWAYS FOR CUB SCOUTS

  • Activities increase our level of fitness and make us feel better about ourselves.
  • Good sportsmanship is just as important as skill in sports and active games.
  • Choosing nutritious foods will help you live an active life.
  • A Scout is friendly. [Wolf Character Compass]

ADVENTURE REQUIREMENTS (Wolf Handbook, page 110)

  1. Play catch with someone in your den or family who is standing 10 steps away from you. Play until you can throw and catch successfully at this distance. Take a step back, and see if you can improve your throwing and catching ability.
  2. Practice balancing as you walk forward, backward, and sideways.
  3. Practice flexibility and balance by doing a front roll, a back roll, and a frog stand.
  4. Play a sport or game with your den or family, and show good sportsmanship.
  5. Do at least two of the following: frog leap, inchworm walk, kangaroo hop, or crab walk.
  6. Demonstrate what it means to eat a balanced diet by helping to plan a healthy menu for a meal for your family. Make a shopping list of the food used to prepare the meal.

 

NOTES TO DEN LEADER

If a physician certifies that a Wolf Scout’s physical condition will prevent him from completing one or more of the requirements in this adventure, for an undetermined period of time, the Cubmaster and pack committee may authorize substituting up to three requirements from elective adventures.

The Meeting 3 activity will be a game chosen by the boys. Make sure all the needed materials are there, and if the game requires special equipment or a large playing field, contact a nearby school, community college athletic department, or the local parks and recreation office for assistance.

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