Visit a nearby lighthouse – or learn something about lighthouses and light stations – There are some great true stories of ordinary keepers and also military assigned keepers and their heroic measures to keep ships safe and rescue trapped sailors.

Visit a nearby beach as families, dens or a pack, and make a project that will keep the day alive –

If allowed, gather materials such as sand, pebbles, beach glass, and shells to do a project that will keep your memories. Here are some ideas I’ve done in the past:

Bottle of Memories #1:

Fill a bottle with sand and dry beach materials such as shells and beach glass – sometimes it’s easier to put the sand in using a funnel, and then adding the other materials so they show against the outside of the bottle.

Bottle of Memories #2:

Gather bottles, with flat sides, like diffuser bottles. Bottles with rounded sides can be used, but you will need to put the bottle on a towel to keep it from rolling. Shells and beach glass may have to be glued on using a hot glue gun, which must be done only by an adult.

Working on one side of the bottle at a time, cover the side of the bottle with glue and add sand, beach glass and shells. Beach sand can also be colored with food coloring.

The bottle can now be used to hold pencils, bath salts, or just as a decoration – and could be a present.



We gathered materials at a nearby beach, including pieces of flat driftwood. At our next den meeting, each boy decided on a simple shape, such as a fish, beach plants, or birds that he had enjoyed at the beach. Using the beach materials, each boy made a “mosaic” picture on the driftwood. One boy added his name for a door plaque on his room, and one boy add numbers for a new address plaque for his house.
