Trapper Trails Council

Have Cubmaster pull out what is in his pockets and explain why he carries it and how he is prepared for emergencies with it.

Cubmaster: Everything a boy puts in his pockets is important to him, just as he and his family is important to our pack. We have to work together to be successful, if our pack is successful, each of us will feel good about ourselves and each other. Let's remember to be prepared by what we carry in our pockets and our lives and be successful.

Many people of all ages have discovered the fun of collecting things. Whether you collect rocks or stamps or model cars, it's exciting to be on the watch for a new item to add to your collection and to see that collection grow. Some collections, such as rare sports cards, can be worth a lot of money. Other collections have no great dollar value. But there is one thing that you can collect which is worth more than anything else: good turns. In the Cub Scout Law of the Pack, we say, "The Cub Scout gives good will." That means that a Cub Scout is always on the lookout for ways to be helpful and kind to other people. When you accumulate acts of good will toward others, you are the wisest collector of them all.
