Baloo's Bugle

June 2005 Cub Scout Roundtable Issue

Volume 11, Issue 10
July 2005 Theme

Theme: Play Ball
Webelos: Aquanaut & Geologist
  Tiger Cub


No big Tiger section this month.  Just get them outside to PLAY BALL.  There are lots of ball games in the game section. 

Hopefully, you have new Tigers you just recruited from this past school year’s Kindergarten classes.  Get them to Day Camp, on a Pack Family Overnighter, to a Campfire, walking a path in the Woods with the den, watching a ball game. 

Work on the Outdoor achievement, number 5.  See Baloo’s Bugle for October 2004 RT (November 2004 Theme, Cub Scout Collectors) for ideas on this achievement.

Weather plays an important part in this Achievement – have your Tigers observe the weather – sunny skies, summer thunderstorms, rain, rainbows, heat, humidity, cool breezes.  See what they think about the weather and what causes it.  Then take that careful turn into the Faith Character Connection.  Have the Tiger explain what he knows (This is done by completing the first part of achievement 5F) and then explain how he feels about things he cannot see (The sun at night, the moon during the day, wind).  And finally, in discussing what you believe in but cannot see, what faith is and how you develop faith.  Faith is one of Cub Scouting’s 12 Core Values.  Don’t miss this chance to discuss Faith with your Tiger.  For more information on Character Connections check out your Tiger Book, Your Leader’s Book or Bill Smith’s Unofficial Cub Scout Roundtable at http://wtsmith.com/rt.html .  He has the whole BSA publication on Character Connections loaded on his site.
