We have a group of Webelos 1. We are following the new 2015 curriculum. We thought the “Cast Iron Chef” and “Camper” Adventures fit nicely together. Here is my experience with our den so far on these:
We centered everything around our big fall camping trip. Which has been canceled and rescheduled already (Joaquin, you suck!). Our first meeting (our first of the year actually), we had the scouts work on tying bowlines and do the race they suggest in the leader guide. This meeting was a bit rocky, but rocky because we have a large den and my co-leader and I just merged our dens together. We had them set their personal nutrition goals (part of the Cast Iron Chef). We also had them recite the outdoor code and the “Leave No Trace” principles.
