RE: [Scouter_T] Pow Wow classes
- Hi Karen! I think that sounds like a really good idea. It would be great to
give Webelos leaders some ideas for making some of those more boring
activity badge requirements more fun by making them into games or other
methods. We have noticed in our pack, that for some reason the Webelos are
the worst-behaved bunch at pack meetings, and I'm told they behave similarly
at their den meetings. Maybe it's early hormones or something, but I think
making the Webelos den leader's job easier would really help!
I had some other ideas for new classes that I e-mailed to Jeff after
Pow-wow, did he forward them to your husband? I just feel bad that I won't
be able to present any classes this year because we planned our vacation
before we heard that the date had been changed.

My husband is the Pow Wow chair for our council this year and we are
talking about creating more classes for Webelos leaders.
