Wolf Den Meeting Plan for Achievement 4 – Know Your Home and Community

Wolf Achievement 4 – Know Your Home and Community – helps Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and be safe. This den meeting plan covers requirements a, b, c, d, and e.

For requirement f, you will need to go on a field trip to a government center or a historic location. One of my dens went to a local historic home. The other den went to a local “one lot” graveyard on our street which dates back to the mid 1800’s. They had fun looking at all of the names and dates on the headstones.
