Scouting Program Archives: Compassion

Compassion
Compassion is being kind and considerate, and showing concern for the well-being of others.

The March Pack Meeting Tips from BSA remind us “Everybody has something valuable to offer and nobody likes being left out. Help your Cub Scouts be aware of the needs of others. Disabled children deal with limitations in their everyday lives.”
