“Do Your Best”
The Timberwolf section is for scouts in grades 3-6. This section’s themes are based on The Jungle Book as written by Robert Baden-Powell‘s friend, Rudyard Kipling. The games and practical activities are focused on learning is “by doing.” The overall program is similar in appearance to B-P’s original pre-1960s Wolf Cub program. The focus is on preparing the Timberwolf scout for scouting in the Pathfinder section.
Timberwolves follow a more structured curriculum, based on the original UK Scouting program developed by Robert Baden-Powell. Timberwolves learn personal responsibility and accountability, more advanced safety skills (including bike safety), and are encouraged to participate in physical activity. Timberwolves are encourages to attend weekend camps without their families. The Timberwolf program includes Character, Handicraft, Service for Others, Physical Health, Outdoor Living.
