Recognition at Pack Meetings Awarding Adventure Loops and Pins at Pack Meetings By den, call the names of those Cub Scouts who have completed the month’s adventure to come forward. Have the den leader pass out the awards to the boys while the Cubmaster gives them a Cub Scout handshake. If time allows, invite the den leader or den chief to speak about the adventure work done for that month, and have the den stand and be recognized. Use a positive cheer to recognize their accomplishments.
Recognition at Pack Meetings Other options: Have the den stand and be recognized for the adventure loop to be awarded. (This option would be appropriate for a den that has already received the belt loop or pin.) Adapt the advancement ceremony for the month’s theme into an adventure loop presentation if no rank badges are being presented.
Planning Pack Meetings Pack meeting plans that support the new program and the 12 points of the Scout Law will be posted April 1 to www.scouting.org/programupdates. While the points of the Scout Law are not in the order as members of the BSA recite them, it is important to cover each of them over a 12-month period in the pack meetings
