So, for the March pack meeting I am going to incorporate a few things. First, I am working on the “Take Flight” theme. The opening I am going to use is having the boys making paper airplanes and trying to get them into hula hoops from the stage we have at the school gym.
We will have the opening flag as I discussed in an earlier post. It worked very well at the Blue & Gold. The great thing is that our new Webelos I scout was able to participate without practicing an actual Flag Ceremony. I know the DL will go over it with him and we will have them do a normal flag.
However, it got the whole Pack into saying the promise and oath. Even if the Webelos Den Leader also a ASM slipped in the Boy Scout Oath.
However, I am wanting to introduce and moreover promote the Beltloop and Pin program. I bought a few of them and mounted them on a small letter size construction paper. Super glue works wonders for the beltloops. I used the pin to fasten those to the paper.
I am using Map & Compass, Baseball, Snow ski & Board sports, Hiking, Family travel and Skateboarding as an intro. Yes, I will talk about the Video Games achivements.
My point about having this as part of the pack meeting is to get the parents/family more active and allowing the cubs to earn awards on their own and maybe not as a den or pack.
I suspect that if the boys have sisters in Girl Scouts there are similar programs and achivements that they might be able to do together. Two birds one stone!
