Hello, Bear and Webelo parents!
At this Sunday’s Den meeting, we will be working on the Whittling Chip. This is the knife safety and carving technique course that earns our Bear Cubs their “Bear Claws” adventure, as well as the ability to carry and use pocket knives at Scout events and campouts. If your Scout has a pocket knife – or if you have one that he can borrow – please bring it to the Den meeting this Sunday. We will have some extras on-hand as well.
This Sunday, we will be working on basic knife safety, handling, and sharpening, and maybe some practice carving on bars of soap. This will earn the boys their whittling chip. At the next meeting, we will be working on wood carving techniques and that will complete the Bear Claws adventure for our Bear Cubs.
