bulletI don’t want to be in a position forcing a race toward finishing achievements in the last two months of the year.  It short-changes the boys experience.
bullet☼Achievements are based on Akela’s call whether the scout “did his best”.  (see page 3 of bear handbook)
bulletI will ask you to work with your son on some achievements before or after a den meeting.  (e.g. folk tales, collections)
bulletAchievement parts not part of 12 selected for Bear badge are arrow points!
bulletAbsences from den activities
bulletSome den activities are voluntary
bullet☼If a scout can’t make a den activity, it is Akela’s responsibility to
bulletAlert den leader or other leader to not expect that scout.
bulletfind out what achievements were covered at the time, and to do it as a family. 
bulletDen leader updates those achievements in scouttrack for boys who were present.
