Wolf Adventure: Council Fire

This adventure gives Wolves the opportunity to be active members of their community.  They learn about recycling, conservation and about workers who help in their community.

They also find out about specific issues which affect their local area.  They think up ways they can help and present their ideas to the Pack Committee and work on the service project they designed and planned.

I really love this adventure, because it shows these second-graders that even they can make a big difference in the world.

The Council Fire adventure requirements are listed below:

Wolf Adventure: Council Fire
  1. Work with your den to develop a den duty chart, and perform these tasks for one month.
  2. Do the following:
    1. Discover information about the plants and animals in your area. Discuss with your den and den leader how people living nearby can affect the lives of these plants and animals.
    2. Learn about the changes in your community, and create a project to show your den how the community has changed.
    3. Select one issue in your community, and present to your den your ideas for a solution to the problem.
  3. Do the following:
    1. Attend the pack committee leaders’ meeting. Present ideas to the pack committee regarding your service project.
    2. Work together on a community service project.
  4. Talk to a military veteran, law enforcement officer, member of the fire department, or someone else who works for the community. Talk about his or her service to the community. After you have visited with the individual, write a short thank you note.
  5. Do the following:
    1. Learn about the three R’s of recycling: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Discover a way to do each of these at home, at school, or in your community.
    2. Make your own recycling center, or contribute to an existing one.
    3. Create a den project from recyclables for a pack meeting.

I love looking at the progression through the ranks... how the responsibilities grow with the boys.  These are the rites of passage I think that so many young boys need as they grow into young men.
