The Timberwolf program is for boys and girls ages 8 – 10 or grades 3 – 5.
The Timberwolf section is open to boys and girls ages 8–10. The Timberwolf Section is referred to as a “Pack” (much like the Otter “Raft” or Pathfinder “Troop”) and the smaller units within the Pack are known as “Sixes,” and both boys or girls may join (with the ideal number being 6–8 per Six).
The Timberwolf Pack will meet as a unit at least once a month (not counting outdoor activities and community service outings), and be led by the Pack Leader or Cubmaster (Akela) with help from the Assistant Pack Leaders. Each Six should be led by a “Sixer” and a “Seconder” selected by Akela from the Timberwolves within that Six. The Sixer helps lead his or her Six during Six activities, and may also assist in training the less-experienced members. At the Pack Meetings, the Timberwolves can, after the opening ceremony, announcements, etc., break out into their smaller units (Sixes) to work on whatever it is they’re learning at the time.
