The core value for Cub Scouts for the month of May is Health and Fitness. According to the program helps health and fitness is:
Being personally committed to keeping our minds and bodies clean and fit.Cub Scouts will learn that it is important and easy to eat a healthy diet and how a fitness program can be part of their daily routine.
This is a natural one to fit into the Cub Scout program. There are health and fitness aspects in the program for each age group. The ideas in the BSA program helps are good. Here are some other ideas:
- Do one of the sports belt loops from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
- Is there someone in your chartered organization who has run in a marathon or is active on a sports team? Invite them to come speak to your group.
- Have a pack field day, with different competitions set up. Intermingle the dens so the younger kids have a chance. Get the parents involved also.
