Scouting Program Archives: Faith

Faith
Faith is having inner strength and confidence based on our trust in God.

The April Pack Meeting Tips from BSA remind us “Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, believed that reverence and duty to God should
be an important part of the Scouting movement, and for every Scout and Scouter. With family guidance, Cub Scouts will develop in their own faith.”

See my page for some additional ways to incorporate Faith into your Cub Scouting program.
