Timber Wolves

Boys and/or girls may join this section between the ages of 8 and 11, depending upon the composition of the Group. Their motto is "Do Your Best".
They join in many games and practical activities based on the Jungle Book as written by B-P's friend Rudyard Kipling. Much of their learning is 'by doing'. The program is based on the "Tenderpad to Second Star" and starts to focus more on outdoor activities. "New Chums" join and are invested becoming Tenderpads. They progress then from First Star to Second Star with the highest award being the Leaping Wolf Badge.
