The Cub Scout core value for the month of March is compassion. The pack program helps have opening and closing ceremonies which involve shoes – for walking in another’s shoes. This is an advancement ceremony which would fit in well with this theme.
You might not need all of the levels in this ceremony. For example, you might not have any Bobcats or any Webelos II. Just adjust it to meet your needs.
