The Knight’s Code
Heart of America Council

Set Up –

After blast of trumpet, a single file row of Knights marches in with flag

Flag is posted and boys lead Pack in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Trumpet blasts a gain, boys in ceremony form a half circle (or other shape) in front of room, facing the audience.

Then they recite The Knight’s Code.  Each Cub has a card with his part on back in LARGE print and an appropriate picture on the front.

  • Be always ready with your armor on, except when you are 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.
  • Chivalry requireth that youth should be trained to perform the most laborious and humble offices with cheerfulness and grace, and do good unto others.

Boys march off together.

Sir Cub Knights
Heart of America Council

Personnel - Cubmaster, 7 Cub Scouts, each with a letter printed to turn up.

Cubmaster:    Long ago when the world was in darkness and evil, a group of men pledged themselves to their king and to going throughout the countryside to do good and brave deeds to help others.      Tonight our Cubs and Webelos remind us that chivalry and good deeds are not a thing of long ago.

  • S - stands for same. Some things may have happened hundreds of year’s ago, but the way the knights acted then is the way we should act now.
  • I - stands for ideas. The ideas of the knights to do good deeds for those in need should be our ideas for today.
  • R- stands for respect. A true knight, respects his king, his elders, women and all those in need of help. Like the knights of old, we too respect our parents and all older people.
  • C- stands for courtesy. A knight knows that the best way of doing anything is to do it in a courteous manner. Cubs also know that the best way to get along with everyone is through courtesy and politeness.
  • U- stands for unity. Even when the knights did things alone, they knew that they belonged to a special group and they acted as members of that group. So we Cubs too, are unified in a special group of which we are truly proud.
  • B- stands for belonging. Once a knight went through his knighting, he knew that he belonged. Cubs know that they belong to their family, their church and the pack.
  • S- stands for special. The Roundtable was made up of a special group called Sir Knights. We belong to a special group of boys called Cubs and Webelos.

Cubmaster:    Our theme for this month is that special group Cubs In Shining Armor. We are all special in the sense that we are Americans. Will everyone please stand to pledge our allegiance to our flag, which represents all of us.
