Campfire Program

Most ranks have a campfire program element. These adventures would lend themselves well to a joint pack meeting. It is required for the Arrow of Light rank for the boys to work with their leader to help plan the program and get the other dens involved.


Tigers in the Wild

  1. Participate in an outdoor pack meeting or pack campout campfire. Sing a song and act out a skit with your Tiger den as part of the program.


Call of the Wild

  1. On the campout, participate with your family or den in a campfire show. Prepare a skit or song, and then present it at the campfire for everyone else.

Howling at the Moon

  1. Work together with your den to plan, prepare, and rehearse a campfire program to present to your families at a den meeting.
  2. Practice and perform your role for a pack campfire program.


Bear Necessities

  1. Attend a campfire show, and participate by performing a song or skit with your den.

Roaring Laughter

  1. Practice at least two run-ons with your den, and perform them at a pack meeting or campfire program.

Arrow of Light


  1. On a pack campout, work with your den leader or another adult to plan a campfire program with the other dens. Your campfire program should include an impressive opening, songs, skits, a Cubmaster’s minute, and an inspirational closing ceremony.

Field Trips

Many adventures suggest a visit to a particular place or with someone of a particular profession. These adventures would work well as a combined field trip or with a guest speaker at the pack level. The following adventures are just one example of requirements that would combine well as a field trip to a police or sheriff’s office or as a visit from a law enforcement officer to your pack meeting.


Rolling Tigers

  1. Visit your local or state police department to learn about bicycle-riding laws.


Hometown Heroes

  1. Visit a community agency where you will find many heroes. While there, find out what they do. Share what you learned with your den.


Paws for Action

2a. Visit a local sheriff’s office or police station, or talk with a law enforcement officer visiting your den. During the visit, take turns with your den members asking questions that will help you learn how to stay safe.


  1. Visit the sheriff’s office or police station in your town. Find out how officers collect evidence.


First Responder

  1. Visit with a first responder.


Also note that each rank has an elective water adventure. Because of the safety requirements, it is good for these to be done on a pack level or at day camp.
