Notes

Each adventure is designed to take approximately two den meetings to implement. For some adventures, one of the meetings may be an outing, ranging from attending a sporting event as a den, to taking a hike, to visiting a museum or going on a campout. At the conclusion of each adventure, a recognition device (a metal belt loop with the image of the award on it) is awarded.
