This week we will be learning about what makes America special, Achievement 3. As a den we will be discussing what makes America special to us, what citizenship means, and reviewing our home assignment where we learned about two famous Americans. After this discussion, we’ll get our blood pumping and build some muscles, Achievement 16. Upstairs in Fellowship hall, the Bear’s will compete in crab relays, a foot push and back to back push competition!
This meeting we will also be introducing the Denner role. The Denner role is a wonderful means by which individual scouts experience small doses of leadership, and the power, responsibility, and frustration that can come from it. The denner will wear the gold double-cord denner braid looped over his left shoulder while in the position and will assist the leaders in running the den meeting by completing various activities. Each den meeting we will select a new denner so everyone gets to experience the role.
