New Updated 1-year Schedule for combining Dens


The The Super Schedule
for Wolf/Bear/Webelos/Arrow of Light in one den in one year.
By Regina Slaugh  (updated 3/06/2017)

The Super Schedule is based on the old “Cub Scout Manual B for combined delivery”.  

Den meetings are set aside to work on the religious emblem with specific suggestions for LDS (six requirements) and Protestant (1 intro plus 4 lessons).  The Catholic Religious emblem specifies that the instruction be done by parents in about 6 weeks, but there could be one den meeting with parents and Cubs to introduce the program.  Information about each faith’s religious award is available online.  This plan has boys count earning the religious emblem toward the Bear Faith and Fellowship Adventure.  

Boys attend each week and although there may be weeks where no specific requirements for their rank are met, the overall program will allow them to receive their advancement each year. 

It is critical to have an attendance chart and a homework chart at each meeting so you know which requirements each boy has completed. 

If a boy misses den meeting he should make up the missed requirements at home if at all possible.  Each Den leader needs all three books (Wolf, Bear, Webelos).   Den Leader Guides are nice resources too.

This manual is designed to start at the beginning of the school year in order to have seasonal requirements at appropriate times during the year.  

This manual can easily be adapted for Wolf and Bear den only or Bear and Webelos only.

It looks like there are too many requirements for each den meeting, but many of the requirements overlap or can be made to overlap.  If there is too much information for the attention spans, pre-make things, go into less depth, simplify for the boys, don’t get bogged down!!!   There are two make-up activities early in the year, try to work ahead (perhaps sub in meeting 20 and 21) in case you have to cancel a den meeting later in the year you will be able to stay on schedule.

Cub Scouts are allowed to receive belt loops at Den Meetings as soon as they are earned if so desired.  (This makes sense if every boy in the pack is getting the same awards.)

*************************************************************************************************
Teaching the boys to love and revere our flag and nation is such an important part of scouting and is just a bit easier with food, so I though I would share this fun, simple idea.

Flag Fun:

Rice Krispie Treat Flags to celebrate our great country! kitchenfun3sons@gmail.com made these fun Rice Krispie Treat Flags.  They are so easy to make!  They used pre-made Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Treat Bars, Red and Blue Fruit Roll Ups, Red Candies, & Star Sprinkles (could sub little pieces of marshmallow or other small white candy, chip, or frosting).
We opened and placed all of our Rice Krispie Treat Bars on our work surface. Cut the red Fruit Roll Ups in half down the middle like this…


Press the strips on the treat bar and cut off at the edges with kitchen scissors. Cut the blue fruit roll up in squares and do the same. The Star Sprinkles will also stick without using frosting. Press them on…

Wow, thanks for sharing your schedule. I was recently called as cub master in my ward. I'm also in charge of den meetings with the help of a parent. Long before I came in our cub scouts haven't done any requirements from the new cub scout program, no one has been advancing and no pack meetings either. We have a small group of about 4-7 plus some siblings. 3 of our scouts are actually 11 but they have been meeting with us since they don't have an ll year old leader. I've never been a cub scout leader before and I'm feeling so overwhelmed on figuring out the new program and how to implement it in our small group. Do you have any advice or suggestions? Help!

Regina said...

The link at the top of the page for how to combine dens is another idea you could look at and a bit simpler, it focuses on offering a balanced sample of cub scouting adventures throughout the year. This helps leaders to plan more easily when they only have to focus on one set of requirements at a time. We've been doing this for a year and the boys love it! (A year ago they all hated cub scouts, now den meeting attendance is way up and they are always curious about what badge is next.) We offer whatever adventure badges our oldest boys need most. The oldest boy keeps changing as birthdays come and go, but all the younger boys have about the same adventures, so when most of the boys have webelos stuff done, we can do more bear and wolf stuff. I just try to be consistent about have a den meeting each week and completing an adventure per month.

Here is a link to a 4-month program for 11-year old scouts, http://www.utahscouts.org/openrosters/DocDownload.aspx?id=158999 With three 11-year olds--their advancement requirements would be my priority. 11 yr olds need to achieve the ranks of Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class by the time they turn 12. Much is completed at camp, so if they are done then work on Webelos or Bear stuff. If I had to skip a rank advancement it would be Wolf and Bear because they aren't pre-requisite for the Arrow of Light. If your area does merit badge classes, have the boys take First Aid, because it passes off a lot of requirements for 11-year olds.

We plan our Pack Meetings like a family home evening group (since we are such a small group of families), that makes them valuable to parents because they have an extra FHE planned for them once a month. I love teaching the importance of FHE and doing scouts all in one. We usually have a gathering activity, flag Ceremony, Lesson (Trustworthy, Loyal, etc), game and treat, in 1 hour, plus we pass out any awards they have earned in den meeting. Since its just you in charge with no committee, you could perhaps let each boy's family take turns each month giving the lesson and coming up with a game and treat to get the families even more invested in scouting. This would give you a much needed preparation week for den meetings each month!

Your little combined group sounds great, in LDS packs/troops scouting is a training program for priesthood service. Learning to participate actively in a den is most important because it simulates what they will do in the future (the actual requirements they do is a bit less important). To form a comparison, now the boys wear a scout uniform to den meeting which will someday be replaced with a white shirt and tie. They go to weekly den meetings which will some day be district meetings, they go to pack meetings that will some day be zone conferences. They learn and study in scouts above and beyond school and as priesthood holders they will serve other people above and beyond what is expected. Some requirements are easy, some take a lot of work--you have to be willing to do the easy AND the hard stuff just the same as when they some day teach people or take on different priesthood assignments. As scouts, they go on cold camping trips with strange camping food which might some day be a 2-year trip to a foreign country with even stranger foods and languages, but they will be prepared because they've done it before on a smaller scale in scouts and succeeded.

Deanna said...

Thank you Regina! What a beautiful comparison of scouting to missionary service! If I'm understanding you correctly from your combining dens page, it is taking the boys 18 months to earn their advancements? This may be a silly question...but is that allowed? I see how important it is the adapt the program to units who are small like ours. From your description it sounds like only the older boys are earning advancements or are you combining adventures from each age group and working on them all simultaneously so that each boy can earn adventure belt loops at your pack meetings? I like how you treat your pack meeting like an extra FHE. I can wrap my head around that!

Regina said...

Yes, it takes 18 months for each advancement in a 2 den pack. The first advancement is the Wolf/Bear advancement where they earn both of those patches (they will need 6 required Wolf, 6 required Bear and at least one elective adventure for each). The second is when they earn their Webelos/Arrow of Light. Combining Webelos and Arrow of Light is so common that the Cub Scouts have combined that into one book!

In a 3 year den (Wolf, Bear, Webelos, AOL) they would get all four patches at the end which seems a little silly to me, I'm not sure I would worry about awarding the individual rank patches, I'd probably just do the Arrow of Light. I might give them my own award for every 6 required adventures, so they would have milestones along the way to their Arrow of Light. We order pins for special awards that are extremely popular with the boys, we get 25 1" pins for $5 from Cheapest Buttons on Etsy. You could have a Wolf Button, a Bear Button, and a Webelos button or something like that. Moms like them too because they don't have to be sewn on:)

The exact age of a Wolf or Bear or Webelos is extremely flexible as well, some cub scout dens are based on school level which could have an age variation of 24 months and LDS dens are based on birthday, which often has cubs working on adventures from a different school year than intended. The 18-month den works very well, it is allowed as long as they only work on Wolf/Bear adventures in the Wolf/Bear den and only do Webelos/AOL adventures in the Webelos/AOL den. In a 3-year den they can work on any of the adventures at any time.

Deanna said...

Love the update! Very user friendly. I finally have the rest of our year scheduled out... playing catch-up for our 2 cub scouts, but I'm going to transition to your schedule in January since I'll have new 8 year olds coming in and I'll actively be working with all 3 dens...combined! Please feel free to come on over to my website at www.deannawelch.com and see what we've been doing with our small combined den! Thanks for posting this schedule!

Natalie said...

Can you send me a digital file of this? I can highlight/copy/paste but I'm assuming your file would be better formatted :) I have 3 Webelos and 1 Bear - this may save my bacon!

Regina said...

sent it, just ignore the wolf stuff and you are good to go!

Merrilie Rackham said...

could you please send me a digital file of the schedule? Thank you for all the work you have done.

Corey Byrnes said...

This is awesome! Just called into the cub scout program. I was trying to figure out how to work on all the different badges at the same time. We are a small unit with only 6 boys, 2 for each rank. I think this schedule will work well for us. Can you send me a digital file of the schedule? Thank you for your hard work.

Regina said...

If you use the contact form at the top of the page, I would be happy to send it! I have docx and pdf versions. I admire all you leaders that are willing to take on multiple ranks at once! Be creative and make everything as simple as possible! Its always nice to have time in den meeting for basketball, a target game, races, treats or something.
