Cub Scout Archives: Yes I Can!

Positive Attitude
Yes I Can! is one of the Cub Scout themes for the core value of Positive Attitude. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:

“It doesn’t matter what you are doing—homework, Cub Scout advancement, or helping Mom set the table—doing your best with a Yes I Can attitude will make the job more fun and less stressful.”

So for this theme, you can encourage Cub Scouts to “do their best” and face challenging situations with a positive attitude.
