The Boy Scouts of America joined the Messengers of Peace initiative in 2012. This program encourages Scouts around the world to work for peace by being a positive force in their communities.
Cub Scouts Give Thanks
This Cub Scout program theme focuses on Thankfulness. Cub Scouts can learn to be grateful for their gifts, their friends, and the world around them. Encourage your Cub Scouts to say “Thank You!” today.
The core value for the month of April is Faith. BSA has just released a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Cub Scouts Give Thanks related to this core value.
I found this ceremony in some old program helps. I thought it would go well with the Cub Scouts Give Thanks supplemental program theme for April.
An appropriate Cub Scout gathering activity for your den or pack will get your meeting off to a good start. This gathering activity works well with the April Cub Scout theme of Cub Scouts Give Thanks.
Faith is an important part of Scouting programs and religious emblems programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers reinforce what is stressed in the 12th point of the Scout Law
This makes a nice Scoutmaster Minute or Cubmaster Minute or even just a good reflection for a family gathering at this time of year. This is based on something in some old BSA program helps
Duty to God is an important part of Scouting, so don’t forget to say grace at Scouting events. This is a non-denominational grace which would be appropriate at any meal.
It is really important for kids to learn how to say “Thank You”. Gratitude is something which needs to be taught, and Cub Scouts is a perfect forum for doing this.
