Closing Award (or recognize) any advancement completed today (ideally, award the activity badge, belt loop or compass item completed today, and recognize later at the pack meeting); thank hosts, guests, helpers. Closing ceremony (rotate planning and leadership to complete Webelos requirement 6): Retire the colors; maybe with the Boy Scout Oath and/or Law, or the Law of the Pack and/or den yell. Den leader may add a den leader’s minute comment. Remind the Webelos Scout who will plan and lead the next meeting’s flag ceremony. Hand out or send family information letter.
Home Assignment: Remind boys to review the Sportsman chapter in their Webelos Handbook before the next meeting.
After the Meeting If you’ve changed the sequence of den meetings, double-check to make sure you will still advance your boys appropriately and check with the Cubmaster to make sure you stay coordinated with the pack. Refreshments: If appropriate Cleanup: Recruit enough help to do a good job. Scouts always leave an area as clean, or cleaner, than they found it.
