Cub Scouting Year 2014-2015 Core Values & Themes
March-Core Value-Compassion/Theme-Be Aware and Care
To have compassion means being kind and considerate, and showing concern for the well-being of others.
Why “Be Aware and Care” for Compassion?
A compassionate Scout imagines himself in the situation of others and feels sympathetic to the distress. As we become aware of the needs of all creatures on Earth, we gain compassion for everything that inhabits our world and the importance of understanding that we are all linked together. This is the reason Scouts are conservation–minded and understand the need to recycle, conserve energy, and follow the principles of Leave No Trace.
Scout Law equivalents to Compassion are “Friendly” and “Kind.”
A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He offers his friendship to people of all races and nations, and respects them even if their beliefs and customs are different from his own. A Scout knows the strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. Without good reason, he does not harm or kill any living thing.
April-Core Value-Faith/Theme-Soaring the Skies
To have faith means possessing inner strength and confidence based on our trust in God.
Why “Soaring the Skies” for Faith?
When you try something new, innovative, or dangerous, it takes faith to make the attempt—faith that a higher power will guide you and keep you safe. It takes faith when we want to fly into the soaring skies. We need faith in the pilots, the co-pilots, the engine and electrical system, the compass, and all the airplane’s instruments. More importantly, it is faith that gives you the courage to board the plane, knowing that a higher power will make sure you take off, fly to your destination, and land safely.
This month’s theme reminds us that faith helps us reach for the sky with our goals, and that we should keep faith in all aspects of our lives.
May-Core Value-Health & Fitness/Theme-Backyard Fun
Health & Fitness
A personal commitment to health and fitness means keeping our minds and bodies clean and fit.
Why “Backyard Fun” for Health and Fitness?
Through Cub Scouting we encourage families to be more physically fit and, at the same time, to enjoy the outdoors in their own backyards. By staging this month’s pack meeting outside, we encourage our Scouts to turn off the television, computer, and video games, and help keep the “Outing” in “Scouting”.
Scout Law equivalent to Health and Fitness is “Clean.”
A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He chooses the company of those who live by high standards. He keeps his home and community clean.
Starting in June with the new Cub Scouting program we change from Core Values to the Scout Law. Please note the changes below highlighted in red.
June-Core Value-Perseverance/Theme-Go for the Gold
June-Scout Law-Obedient/ Theme-Play Ball
To show perseverance means to stick with something and not give up, even if it is difficult.
Why "Go for the Gold" for Perseverance?
"Go for the Gold" will help Cub Scouts learn and experience the perseverance that gold miners had long ago, as they try to obtain treasures on their pack "Go for the Gold" day!
Scout Law equivalent to Perseverance is "Thrifty".
A Scout works to pay his own way and to help others. He saves for the future. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property.
July-Core Value-Courage/Theme-Under the Sea
July-Scout Law-Loyal/Theme-Scout Salute
To have courage means to be brave and do what is right regardless of our fears, the difficulties, or the consequences.
Why “Under the Sea” for Courage?
The oceans are the last unexplored frontiers on Earth. It takes courage to venture into undiscovered territory. This month, let us take our Cub Scouts under the oceans to explore and do what is right in caring for our last earthly frontier.
Scout Law equivalent to Courage is “Brave.”
A Scout can face danger although he is afraid. He has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at him or threaten him.
August-Core Value-Honesty/Theme-Play Ball
August-Scout Law-Courteous/Theme-Cub Scout Fun
Honesty means telling the truth and being worthy of trust. Cub Scouts will gain a better understanding of the importance of following the rules, playing fair, and being trustworthy in games and in daily life.
Why “Play Ball” for Honesty?
It is easy to forget how important it is to be honest when one is playing a game and really wanting to win; however, a Cub Scout is a person who always tells the truth and is worthy of trust. This month we reinforce how important it is to be honest, especially when playing baseball with friends.
Scout Law equivalents to Honesty are “Trustworthy” and “Loyal.”
A Scout tells the truth. He is honest, and he keeps his promises. People can depend on him. A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation.
