Leave Nothing but Footprints
The best gift for a Cub Scout.......
......get his parents involved!
Special points of interest: Core Values and Character Connections
Some of the purposes of Cub Scouting developed through this month’s theme are:
Friendly Service, Cub Scouts can demonstrate friendly service through conducting a Leave No Trace service activity.
Fun and Adventure, Cub Scouts will get in touch with nature through hikes and various outdoor activities..
Preparation for boy Scouts, Cub Scouts learn about good outdoor practices used by Boy Scouts when they camp and hike..
The core value highlighted this month is: Responsibility, Boys will learn they are responsible for having a minimal impact on nature so others can
who come later can enjoy the outdoors
Can you think of others??? Hint – look in your Cub Scout Program Helps. It lists different ones!! All the items on both lists are applicable!! You
could probably list all twelve if you thought about it!!
Responsibility. Knowledge of nature and their place in it will help Cub Scouts be responsible for keeping the outdoors clean and unspoiled.
Compassion. What would happen if the outdoors were spoiled? What would happen to the animals, the birds, the rivers, the trees, to us? Answering
these questions will help Cub Scouts learn empathy and compassion for the life around them.
