Thank You Ceremony
This Thank You ceremony is based on one I found in some old program helps. It goes well with the older Cub Scouts Give Thanks supplemental program theme.
Thank You Ceremony
Let the Cub Scouts prepare eight large placards, each with a large letter painted on it to match the initial letter of each verse. As each verse is recited by a Cub, the proper letter is displayed so that at the end of the eight verses, the words “Thank You” are visible to all.
Cub 1: “T- stands for teacher, and we have a quest, as a Pack – we promise them ‘We’ll do our best.’ “
Cub 2: “H – is for helpful, which we try to be as each helps the other in the highest degree.”
Cub 3: “A – for advantages we all enjoy. We try to be grateful and wisely employ.”
Cub 4: “N – is for nation whose future depends, on all of us in the pack who want to be friends.”
Cub 5: “K – is for knowledge we’re going to need. We’ll work hard to gain it and hope we succeed.”
Cub 6: “Y – is for youth all over the land. God bless and keep us and steady our hand.”
Cub 7: “O – for opportunity around everyone. We’ll help each other rise until we have all won.”
Cub 8: “U – stand for usefulness. We like to serve. We do what we can to help and conserve.”
See and here a video version of this Thank You Ceremony.
An appropriate Cub Scout gathering activity for your den or pack will get your meeting off to a good start. This thankfulness zone gathering activity works well for Thanksgiving or the Cub Scout theme of Cub Scouts Give Thanks.
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.
Here are some crafts and other ideas for the Cub Scouts, but there are also things which Scouts BSA and Venturers can do with this theme.
