Webelos Fitness Activity Badge

Webelos Fitness Activity Badge Den Meeting Plan

My Webelos den has started working on Fitness. This activity badge is required for the Webelos badge.

When I told my guys we were working on Fitness activity badge, they were all ready to go outside and do some situps and pushups. I had to break the news to them that they’ll have to wait for Athlete activity badge to do that. Fitness is all about healthy habits.

Most of the requirements must be done with a parent. So at our meeting, I talked to them about what they needed to discuss with their parents and sent them home with some handouts. We’ll follow up on what they did at home at a later meeting.

When we were finished with all of the talking we played a team building game and then headed out to the playground for ten minutes. That was their reward for being really well behaved during the discussion part.
