BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. The newest theme for the August core value of Honesty will be a Kids Against Crime theme.
Kids Against Crime
Here is what the old program helps said about this theme: “Crime Prevention is everyone’s job. Cub Scouts will spend the month learning how to keep themselves, their families and their homes safe.”
So this theme will revolve around the ideas of safety and crime prevention. Several of the Cub Scout achievements and electives fit in with this theme.
Plaster of Paris is messy, which means Scouts will enjoy it. You can use this versatile medium to make plaster molds and casts. This technique can be used to make shoe prints or tire track casts for Requirement 1 of Bear Achievement 7 – Law Enforcement Is a Big Job.
Emergency preparedness is part of every level of Scouting program. For younger Scouts, that primarily means knowing how to get help.
