Cub Scouting Year Themes
August 2015 Theme-Play Ball
Why “Play Ball”?
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.
CUB SCOUTING YEAR 2015-2016 SCOUT LAW AND THEMES
September 2015 Scout Law-Clean and Cub Scout Theme-Cubservation
A Scout is Clean
A Scout keeps his body and mind fit. He helps keep his home and community clean.
How does "Cubservation" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Everything we do impacts the world around us. When a Scout is clean, he is choosing to make sure that the legacy he leaves is a positive one. He makes moral choices and through an activity lifestyle he keeps his body healthy. He also is conscious of the impact that he can have on nature and the responsibility he has to keep the world clean for those who come behind him.
October 2015 Scout Law-Brave and Cub Scout Theme-Super Cub!
A Scout is Brave
A Scout can face danger even if he is afraid. He stands for what is right even if others laugh at him.
How does "Super Cub!" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Superheroes are known for facing danger although they are afraid. A Scout, like a superhero, has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at him or threaten him.
November 2015 Scout Law-Helpful and Cub Scout Theme-Cubs in Action
A Scout is Helpful
A Scout volunteers to help others without expecting a reward.
How does "Cubs in Action" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
It is never too early in our lives to begin helping other people. Scouting has promoted being helpful to others since it began in 1907 in England. William D. Boyce saw this in action on that foggy night in London, when a Scout helped him find his way. Boyce was so impressed that the Scout helped him and refused a reward that he incorporated the Scouting program in America in 1910.
December 2015 Scout Law-Reverent and Cub Scout Theme-Winter Wonderland
A Scout is Reverent
A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.
How does "Winter Wonderland" relate to this point in the Scout Law?
As Winter comes, it brings with it a wonderland of snow, peace, beauty and holidays. Many of us come from different backgrounds and celebrate different traditions; each of our traditions gives us an identity, a sense of belonging. When we share our traditions and accept the traditions of others, we expand our circle so that everyone feels that they belong. Whether we celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or none of these, sharing valued traditions and holding true to what they stand for will help us understand others. But no matter who we are or how we celebrate, everyone in Scouting is part of a great organization that has taught us to show reverence for others and their beliefs.
January 2016 Scout Law-Trustworthy and Cub Scout Theme-The Great Race
A Scout is Trustworthy
A Scout tells the truth and keeps his promises. People can depend on him.
How does "The Great Race" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Being a member of a racing team--or any team, for that matter--provides an opportunity to demonstrate that one is trustworthy. Team members must trust each other to always be prepared and perform their tasks to the best of their ability. They trust that in the event of a loss, the entire team will demonstrate good sportsmanship toward each other and toward the other teams.
February 2016 Scout Law-Friendly and Cub Scout Theme-Friends Near and Far
A Scout is Friendly
A Scout is a friend to everyone, even people who are different from him.
How does "Friends Near and Far" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
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 the beliefs and customs of others. Friends Near and Far reminds us that we are part of something bigger than our own community. By living the Scout Law, we are accepting of the world's peoples and their values.
March 2016 Scout Law-Thrifty and Cub Scout Theme-Cubstruction
A Scout is Thrifty
A Scout works to pay his way. He uses time, property and natural resources wisely.
How does "Cubstruction" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Part of being thrifty is avoiding waste and using resources wisely. It is important to learn how to conserve and repurpose the many items we use every day to help our environment. We can also use our resources in innovative ways for fun and adventure.
April 2016 Scout Law-Cheerful and Cub Scout Theme-Strike Up and Band
A Scout is Cheerful
A Scout looks for the bright side of life. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.
How does "Strike Up the Band" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Music can make us feel many things; one of the best things it makes us feel is cheerful. As we "strike up the band" this month, we will explore ways to make people happy using music.
May 2016 Scout Law-Kind and Cub Scout Theme-My Animal Friends
A Scout is Kind
A Scout treats others as he wants to be treated. He never harms or kills any living thing without good reason.
How does "My Animal Friends" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
A Scout knows there is strength in being gentle. It is important to be kind to all creatures, great and small. This month we will explore ways to be kind to our animals friends.
June 2016 Scout Law-Obedient and Cub Scout Theme-It's a Hit
A Scout is Obedient
A Scout follows the rules of his family, school and pack. He obeys the laws of his community and country.
How does "It's a Hit" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
It is easy to forget the importance of being honest when you are playing a game and you really want to win. However, a Cub Scout always tells the truth and is the person worthy of trust. This month, we will reinforce how important it is to be honest--notably when playing ball with friends.
July 2016 Scout Law-Loyal and Cub Scout Theme-Scout Salute
A Scout is Loyal
A Scout tells the truth and keeps his promises. People can depend on him.
How does "Scout Salute" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school and nation. Cub Scouts will show their loyalty during this meeting by participating in several activities such as honoring the American flag, creating a pack banner and hearing about loyalty from a guest speaker or demonstrating loyalty to a team through a pack game.
August 2016 Scout Law-Courteous and Cub Scout Theme-S'More Cub Scout Fun
A Scout is Courteous
A Scout is polite to everyone and always uses good manners.
How does "S'more Cub Scout Fun" relate to this point of the Scout Law?
Summertime is a great time to get outside and to have S'more Cub Scout Fun! This month, enjoy one of the last of the Summer evenings at a pack campfire. Cub Scouts can experience fun in a campfire program full of songs, skits, awards and great memories. At the campfire, the Cub Scouts will treat each other with politeness because each boy knows that is how he wants to be treated.
