I Promise
National Capital Area Council

I promise to do my best at work or at play. I will follow the rules and never cheat, and will help other members of my team. I will always try to make my family, neighborhood, school, Pack, and friends proud of the things I do.


Spotlight the Boy
National Capital Area Council

The US Flag and a pack flag are carried to the front by the color guards. They face the audience. The lights are turned down and a Cub Scout stands in between the flags. A spotlight is turned on the setting. A good reader, reads the verse below.

He's just eight years old He's made of the following ingredients: Noise, energy, imagination, curiosity and hunger. He's the "cute little boy down the street", That "spoiled imp next door", or "My Son,"...depending on who you are. He's something to be kept fed, clothed, healthy, happy and out of trouble. But,He's something else, too.  He's tomorrow. He's the future we've been fighting for. He's part of the world's most important generation. Our generation must also win the peace.


Do Your Best
National Capital Area Council

D-Doing for others in need
O-One country, allegiance, and creed

Y-Yes, a response that we give
O-Oath, that we pledge to live
U-Under, one flag we all stand
R-Ready, to defend our great land

B-Beauty, we see it each day
E-Eagerness, we all should display
S-Service, and love toward others
T-Thankfulness for making us brothers


Standing Up To Crimes Opening:
Crossroads of America Council

Equipment: Wolf Book

Personnel: Six Cub Scouts

(The first boy holds the Wolf book and then passes it on to the next in line as the lines are read.)

1st Cub:                     As boys and their families joined Cub Scouts they learned the Cub Scout promise.

2nd Cub: When we say we'll do something, that is a promise ‑ we promise to do obey the law of the Pack.

3rd Cub: Then we promise to do our duty to God.

4th Cub: Then we promise to do our duty to our Country. This means we should do what we can for our country, be proud that we are Americans and obey the laws of the land.

5th Cub: Next we promise to help other people which means you should do things for others that would please them.

6th Cub: Lastly, we promise to obey our leaders and parents. All of this, we promise to do.

All: Please rise and join us in the Pledge of Allegiance.


Cub Crime Prevention Tips
York Adams Area Council

Cub #1: To help make things safer, we offer these tips,

On everything from school to going on trips.

Cub #2: Make sure that you know your full name and phone number,

So if you should need them you donít stop and wonder.

Cub #3: Learn from your parents where youíre safe to go

That way if youíre walking, which way they will know.

Cub #4: Be alert in your neighborhood and note what you see

Tell an adult if you think ďIt didnít look good to me.Ē

Cub #5: Donít let your feelings get you in a fight,

Make friends or walk away whether youíre wrong or right.

Cub  #6: And finally, remember, put safety number one

So no one gets hurt and all will have fun.
