Cubs in Shining Armor

July Cub Scout Theme – Cubs in Shining Armor (Courage)

BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. It looks like the newest theme for the July core value of Courage will be a Cubs in Shining Armor theme. This one was the program theme at least once in the past. So I’ll be adding some ideas related to the theme this month.

Here is what the old program helps said about this theme:

Let our heroes shine as they welcome new Cub Scout Knights into their den and pack. Learn about chivalry and the rules of the Roundtable. Make medieval costumes and design your own coat of arms. Find out what life was like in the times of castles and knights. Cub Scouts can be “knighted” as they advance in rank.

So this theme will revolve around the ideas of honor and service. So organize a summer service project. Knights went on quests, so you could have some sort of fun “quest scavenger hunt”. And if your council or district offers a chance to earn your Archery Belt Loop and Pin, your Cub Scouts can learn to be archers, just like the knights of old.
