The Timberwolf section is open to youth of all genders, aged 8–10 (grades 3 through 5).
The Timberwolf Section is referred to as a Pack; the smaller group is known as a Six.
The Timberwolf program is focused on hands-on outdoor skills, meaningful community service, and the strengthening of the Pack. There is a lore and magic to the Timberwolf program that is based on The Jungle Book, as written by Robert Baden-Powell‘s friend, Rudyard Kipling. In The Jungle Book, the human child Mowgli is raised in a pack of wolves, and taught The Laws of the Jungle by a series of animals. So, too, the Timberwolf in their Pack will learn the laws of the jungle and the power of community.
Our 124 Redwood Ranger Timberwolves generally meet once a month on a weekday evening, in Arcata, focusing on skill development and badge work. We also meet with our larger troop once a month for an outdoor event. Please see our calendar for upcoming events.
Handbook and Uniform:
BPSA Timberwolf Handbook – Each scout receives a printed/bound handbook when they register with the 124 Redwood Rangers.
Uniforms – These are simply a gray shirt and blue ball cap, and can be purchased either through the BPSA Quartermaster site, or locally. Neckers and patches are provided by our local troop.
