While you are doing your outdoor activities, your Cub Scouts can earn the Cub Scout Leave No Trace award.
Be Aware and Care
Be Aware and Care is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Compassion. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“A compassionate Scout imagines himself in the situation of others and feels sympathetic to their distress. As we become aware of the needs of all creatures on Earth, we gain compassion for everything that inhabits our world and the importance of understanding that we are all linked together. This is the reason Scouts are conservation-minded and understand the need to recycle, conserve energy, and follow the principles of Leave No Trace.”
Conservation and Scouting have always gone hand in hand. And our young Cub Scouts are fascinated by wildlife and are usually eager to learn how to participate in conservation projects. You can spark that interest with the Wildlife Conservation belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program.
This time of year, Tiger dens have usually gone through quite a few of the achievements and electives in the program. If you haven’t done a cleanup treasure hunt yet, then this is a good simple outdoor activity for your Tigers. They will really enjoy it.
Leave No Trace is an outdoor ethics program which encourages responsible use of outdoor resources. The frontcountry guidelines are the guidelines for day-use areas like parks and trails.
This puzzle would make a good gathering activity for a meeting focused on Wolf Achievement 7 – Your Living World.
