Tips for Wolf Achievement 1 – Feats of Skill

There are a couple of different ways to work on Wolf Achievement 1 – Feats of Skill – with your den. One way is to do all of the requirements in one meeting. Another is to spread them out between different meetings.

I have used both methods. With DS’s den, we did all of the requirements in one meeting.  I brought all of the equipment and we went out on the field at school and ran through all of the requirement. It was a fun meeting and they really enjoyed it.

With ZM’s den, I spread the activities out over various den meetings throughout the first half of the year. His den is a little more active and needs to have the more school-like activities alternated with more physical activities. So after we sat and did a Character Connection or some other sort of “academic” requirement, then we would get up and do one or two of the requirements for Achievement 1.

So you need to consider the temperament of your den. Some dens will get too wound up if you do them all at once and might benefit from having them spread out over a few months. The disadvantage is that boys who miss a meeting or two will need to make this up. But I found that most of these are so easy to do that they can do them on their own.

This also illustrates that there is often not a right or wrong way to plan your program. Look at your den and decide what works best for you.
