Allegiance to the Outdoors
Great Salt Lake Council
CM: We are coming up on the time of the year when we start using the outdoors more and more whether we are hiking the trails of America or just going to the park. Each of us, as Cub Scouts, owes an allegiance to the outdoors just as we do our flag. Each Cub Scout should know and understand the outdoor code.
- As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my outdoor habits;
- That means, I will keep my trash and garbage out of America’s waters, fields, woods and roadways.
- Be careful with fire:
- That means, I will build my fire in a safe place and be sure it is out before I leave.
- Be considerate of the outdoors:
- That means, I will remember that the use of the outdoors is a privilege I can lose by abuse.
- And be conservation minded:
- That means, I will learn to practice good conservation of soil, waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, and wildlife and I will urge others to do the same.
CM: Please join with me in the Pledge of Allegiance
Explore Your Neighborhood
Capital Area Council
Five Cub Scouts come on stage in turn and recite one verse
Each Cub should have a prop that represents what his verse is about. Words could be on back of prop or a card in LARGE print.
- Newspaper Boy:
I am your paperboy
I deliver the news
Freedom of press
Has different views.
I am the postman
I deliver with dash
That Boy’s Life issue
That’s really a smash.
- School Crossing Guard
Safety is my job
I am the school guard
You cross the street safely
To the other yard.
- Speed Limit Sign
I am the sign-
That saves a lot of lives
Everyone obeys me
Without any jive.
I am the litter
That makes everyone bitter
Let’s clean it up
So life will glitter.
CM Our neighborhood is an important part of the country in which we live. Let us all now stand and pledge allegiance to our country.
