Wolf Den members learned about Geocaching on 4-28-15 and tried it out, looking for a hidden
"practice" cache that turned out to be hidden inside a rubber bat (yuck)! They learned about GPSs, coordinates, and compass directions. It was a lot of fun and inspired an interest in the hobby that might last a long time.

The Wolf Cubs had their first foray into knot-tying at tonight's Den Meeting, practicing the Overhand Knot and Square Knot using 30" practice ropes supplied by the Den Leader. Asst. Den Leader Lucas and Den Chief Joe helped out with this tricky process for beginners. We'll spend more time on this in the future, but we got a great start. Links to knot tying instructional videos are below.
