Hiking Activities: Sometimes when we are out hiking with Scouts it seems like they are so focused on getting from here to there that they forget to look around and see the sights. If you are out with a goal oriented group and you want them to take some time to explore, consider adding one or more additional hiking activities. You’ll find some suggestions below
Word on the street is that BSA will release a June Cub Scout theme called “Head West Young Man” for the June core value of Perseverance. A pack meeting plan for this westen/cowboy theme should be available soon. How can you work this theme into your pack program? It definitely has a historical bent. Knots come to mind right away also, as well as survival skills. So here are some achievements you might be able to fit in with a “Head West Young Man” theme: www.scoutermom.com/
Rumor has it that BSA will be rolling out an Abracadabra theme for January’s core value of Positive Attitude some time in the near future. So this month I am going to highlight some ideas to go along with that magic based program theme also. This was one of the Cub Scout monthly program themes a few years back, so I’ll dig through my old notes to find what I saved.
The core value for the month of April is Faith. BSA has just released a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Cub Scouts Give Thanks related to this core value. For more ideas for use with this theme, see my Cub Scouts Give Thanks program theme page.
Psalm 46 is probably my favorite. It lifts me up, and at the end it tells me that all I have to do to know He is near is simply quiet myself. And how hard that is sometimes as a Single Working Mother. www.thesinglemomb... www.facebook.com/... Photo Credit: office.microsoft.com
This is a home safety checklist for Cub Scouts to use. It can be used with Wolf Achievement 9 (Be Safe at Home and on the Street). There is a longer BSA home safety checklist for use with some Boy Scout merit badges, but this abbreviated list will be easier for Cub Scouts to use.
Every month, Cub Scouts focus on a core value. The core value for the month of May is Health and Fitness. Along with the regular pack meeting plan for this core value, BSA also plans to release a Cub Cafe theme. It will probably focus on cooking, like the old Cub Cafe theme did.
