Cub Scouts of all ages can learn about responsibility, which relates to the Scout Law point of trustworthy. According to the program helps responsibility is:
Fulfilling our duty to God, country, other people, and ourselves. Responsibility is fulfilling our duty to help others and take care of ourselves. It is behaving safely and appropriately without having to be told.
So how can you fit this into your pack program? Here are some ideas:
- Have a presentation on home safety. Invite a police officer, fire fighter, or your local building inspector to give a presentation.
- Learn about the Outdoor Code and the principles of Leave No Trace. Have an older Scout come in and talk about outdoor ethics.
- Work on the Cub Scout World Conservation award
- Discuss what it means to be a responsible member of a family and community. Invite a representative of an organization which serves the local area to talk about the needs in the community.
