My Pack is issuing Rank Challenges to help our Scouts stay involved and entertained over this prolonged period of self-quarantine and social distancing.
As an addition to my post about Webelos/AOL Adventures to Complete at Home, which includes an extensive look at how Scouts can complete numerous adventures from the safety of home, I decided to create challenges for each of the dens in my care.
Please feel free to download and use as you see fit. Note that these DO include reference to our Pack’s closed Facebook group. If you download these forms, please give this blog post a link and/or share. It would help me out a lot and would give more Scouters the opportunity to use them.
- Loyal Lions Challenge

- Witty Wolves Challenge
- Busy Bears Challenge
