Den Skits
Each den will have the opportunity to do a skit at the campfire. Below is a link for some skit ideas. Please note that not all skits are age appropriate and search for Cub Scout skits. For ideas see: https://www.boyscouttrail.com/skits.asp.

Nature Activities and Crafts:
Each den is asked to bring one or two crafts to do with the pack. Each activity should take about 10-15min. We will rotate groups of kids (3-5) around to each activity. Please sign-up the activities the den will do so there is no overlap. Sign-ups are on the Crafts/activities tab of the Google sheets registration for Spring Camping.

Ideas include: Leaf rubbings, pinecone bird feeder, simple knots, Make a walking stick, animal track or plant ID games, rock painting, plant a see/flower, build bat houses, etc.

Outdoor Activity Award
For the scouts that did not attend the fall family camping this is a great time to complete the Outdoor Activity Award. Den Leaders, please let your scout families know what is needed for your rank. Missing activities can be done during the Activities and Crafts or Nature Hike.
