Wolf Collections and Hobbies Adventure: Retired

BSA retired this adventure on May 31, 2022. This information remains here for historical purposes.

Collections and Hobbies is one of the Wolf Cub Scout elective adventures. For the Collections and Hobbies adventure, Wolves start a collection and share it with their den. They also visit collection on display and play a game related to collecting.

Cub Scouts can use almost any set of similar items as a collection. Chances are they already have some “collections” in their possessions. They just need to consider what is a part of their set and what is not. And they should organize them in some logical manner. So toy cars, baseball cards, Pokemon cards, small action figures, a set of items related to a movie, etc. can all be considered collections.
