Tiger Scouts: Tiger Tales
Our past is exciting and important to understand. Tiger Tales offers the opportunity for Tigers to hear, sing, play and create stories, art and songs that tell the history of America. Some stories are about real people such as Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone but tend to be exaggerated to make them seem bigger than life. Other times, stories are about fictional characters capable of amazing things that seem impossible. Either way, tall tales and folk songs offer the spirit of American life from our ancestors telling us about their happiness, fears, dreams, and the hopes they shared.

Wolf Scouts: Collections and Hobbies
A Collection is a group of objects that are similar or are special in some way. A collection could be anything; paintings, rocks, stamps, dolls, elephant (figurines) etc. A person who collects is a collector. We are all collectors.
*If there are scouts that have a collection please have them bring in a small sample of their collection to share. If those items are too large they may bring in photographs.

Wolf Scouts: Finding Your Way
Learning to read and use a map and a compass is a valuable skill. In this adventure, Scouts will receive an introduction to maps, symbols, and the cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west. Cubs will also learn the basic functions of a compass as well as practice using it.

Boy Scouts: Collections- Merit Badge
A collection could be anything from paintings, rocks, stamps, dolls to elephant (figurines). A collector educates himself about his interest or collection. He must be able to be able to care for his collections, how to catalog and organize his collection, and how to evaluate the value of his items.
*To participate in this activity please have scouts be ready to talk about their collection, Prepare and bring in a brief outline giving a detailed description of collection, including a short history. As well as why you chose that particular type of collecting and what you enjoy and have learned from your collection.
** Please bring in a sample of your collection between 3-5 objects. If they are too large or have many more you may bring in photographs.
