Turn Up The Power (Webelos Craftsman & Scientist)



Opening Ceremony I
Sam Houston Area Council

The room is darkened (dimmed lights). A den of boys comes out playing with pinwheels, hand-held electronic games, solar-powered calculators, etc.

The Cubmaster, using a flashlight, walks over to turn on/up the lights in the room. One boy looks at his watch and says, "Wow, it's time to go, so they can get on with the show!" The boys hurry to their seats.

Cubmaster: I'm sure you know by now that this month's theme is "Turn on the Power", one of the most powerful things here tonight is the Power of Scouting. Will the boys of den __ please present the Colors.

Cub Power
York Adams Council
Have the Cubs make up 8-1/2 by 11 sheets with the letters spelling out "CUB POWER" using really "electrifying" colors. Tape the boys' lines to the backs of the pages.

C - Cub Scouts are the brightest.

U - You will see tonight.

B - Because we really can,

P - Power up the night.

O - Outdoors, indoors, anywhere

W - We will have great fun.

E - Everyone will know

R - Really! Cub Scouts are Number One!

LEADER: Let's start our fun off tonight with the Pledge of Allegiance.

[All stand, salute, and say the Pledge.]

At the very end of the Pledge, the Den can shout out "Cub Power" like people shout "play ball" at ball games.
