No Knights About Today
Heart of America Council

Personnel: 8 Cub Scouts in costume.

 In turn each recites one line of the following verse.

  • If I had been a knight of yore,
  • I would have opened up the door,
  • For queens and ladies to pass through.
  • I would have been trustworthy, true.
  • I would have ridden giant steeds,
  • Accomplishing noteworthy deeds!
  • Today there are no knights about,
  • And so I have become a Scout.

We The Knights Of The Roundtable
Heart of America Council

Personnel: Cubmaster in Knight’s costume, reader, and den of Cub Scouts dressed as knights.

Equipment: Knight’s costumes, including shields and wooden or cardboard swords and a scroll.

Arrangement: Cub Scouts form a closed circle around the Cubmaster, holding shields in front of them and facing out.

Cubmaster: We, the Knights of the Roundtable, are bound together in a circle of steel. Let this steel wall remind us to keep from our land and from our daily lives, those things that are not in keeping with our code of honor. Now, Knights of the Roundtable, place your left hand on your sword. May the spirit of honor and freedom go forth from you to all your brothers.

Reader: Reads the Cub Scout Promise written on the scroll while all Cubs join in.


The Knight’s Code
Heart of America Council

This code is slightly different from the one in the Opening Ceremony.  Either could be used for Opening or Closing. But please don’t Open and Close with the same thing.  CD

Have one Cub Scout read each part.

  • Be always ready with your armor on, except when taking your rest at night.
  • Defend the poor and help them that cannot defend themselves.
  • Do nothing to hurt or offend anyone else.
  • Be prepared to fight in the defense of your country.
  • At whatever you are working, try to win honor and a name for honesty.
  • Never break your promise.
