The Passport to Other Lands Cub Scout pack meeting plan features ideas for the core value of respect- games, group activities, songs, and more.
Passport to Other Lands
Passport to Other Lands is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Respect. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“Today we recognize that people of many different nationalities live in our communities. Learning about the ways of others helps lead to understanding, which in turn leads to respect. Respect means showing regard for the worth of something or someone. This month we focus on having respect for others by learning about the customs, religions, foods, and traditions of our friends from other countries.”
BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. One theme for the December core value of Respect s a Passport to Other Lands theme.
Children like to learn what is different and what is the same for kids in other countries. Cub Scouts who enjoy learning about life in other parts of the world can earn the Language and Culture belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
An interpreter strip shows which foreign languages a Scout is familiar with. It is worn above the “Boy Scouts of America” strip on the uniform. This emblem can be worn by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Varsity Scouts, or adults.
