Cub Scout Archives: Under the Sea

Courage
Under the Sea is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Courage. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:

“The oceans are the last unexplored frontiers on Earth. It takes courage to venture into undiscovered territory. Courage is also doing what is right regardless of the consequences. This month let us take our Cub Scouts under the oceans to explore and do what is right in caring for our last earthly frontier.”
