Cub Scout Archives: Ocean Cub Scout Theme
The ocean conjures up thoughts of exotic creatures, beautiful beaches, and pirate adventures for Cub Scouts. Plan an ocean themes den or pack meeting to add some spark to your Cub Scout program.
A few ideas for this theme are listed below, and more will gradually be added. Organize a pack meeting or den meeting around them. Or plan an overall theme for your Cub Scout year and add an element or two from the theme into your program each month.
