The Down on the Farm meeting plan features ideas for the core value of responsibility – games, group activities, songs, and more to help Cub Scouts become responsible members of their Packs. This theme focuses on Duty to God, Duty to Country, and Duty to Self.
For more ideas for use with this program theme, see the bottom of this post.
Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with the value of responsibility:
The job of a farmer is filled with responsibilities. If the farmer does not properly tend his or her crops and animals, they will not thrive. A farmer is an example of someone we would like our Cub Scouts to know as the model of a person who shows responsibility
