An idea for your gathering activities for photography or camera themes is to have a caption contest with some silly or unusual photos.
Cub Scout Archives: Lights, Camera, Action!
Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“Let the spotlight shine on our Cub Scouts. Our Scouts spend many hours in front of the television set. Let’s put that to good use this month, and use it to promote positive values and a positive attitude. Create a very special red carpet event at this pack meeting, and every Cub Scout will feel like a star.”
“When I Was Young” can be used as one of the gathering activities for any meeting centered around a history theme or a photography or cinema theme. This also works well for a Blue and Gold banquet.
The Cub Scout core value for the month of January is Positive Attitude. BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Lights, Camera, Action related to this core value.
BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. One theme for the January core value of Positive Attitude is a Lights, Camera, Action theme.
At the beginning of the month I posted the requirements for the Photography belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program. If your Cub Scout enjoyed that activity, maybe he wants to learn more about photography by earning the pin also.
Do you have a Cub Scout who loves to take pictures? If so, have him grab his camera and earn the Photography belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
