Ideas for Pack Meeting about Perseverance

Cub Scouts can benefit from learning how to hang in there when things aren’t going our way. According to the program helps perseverance is:

Sticking with something and not giving up, even if it is difficult.

So how can you fit this into your pack program? Here are some ideas:

  • Mazes make a great gathering activity. Have some printed out to keep your scouts busy.
  • Strategy games like chess and checkers require kids to think ahead and stay focused. Organize a mini tournament.
  • Play a challenging game which requires scouts to stick with it. The Human Knot game and I Can Do That with One Hand Tied Behind My Back are good examples.
  • Fishing takes some patience also. Have a pack fishing outing.
  • Do an outdoor scavenger hunt. Scouts will have to try to find lots of items on the list.
