Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
Faith means having inner strength and confidence based on trust in a higher power. Understanding one’s family tree, ancestors, and heritage brings stories to life of the strength and confidence of our family members. It also tells of their belief and trust in a higher power to help bring them safely to the United States. In years past, many immigrants traveled by boat. What faith they had in that boat that would change their lives!
So this theme is based on the idea of the faith our ancestors had to set out into the world, especially those who traveled by boat. Below you’ll find some ways to form your pack and den programs around this theme.
One suggestion is to have a Raingutter Regatta. If you have never done a Raingutter Regatta, consider adding it to your pack program. The kits (available at your local Scout shop) are similar to the Pinewood Derby kits, but easier to put together. And the track is simply a raingutter filled with water.
