The Cub Scout core value for the month of June is perseverance. This word might be unfamiliar to your Cub Scouts. This ceremony will help them understand the meaning of the word.
This would work especially well as part of an opening ceremony.
Cub Scout Perseverance Ceremony
Adult Leader or Den Chief: One of the things we try to learn in Cub Scouting is Perseverance. That is a big word. What does it mean?
Cub Scout 1: In the Bible it says, “The waters wear the stones.”
Cub Scout 2: The water does this a little bit at a time over many years. We might things to happen quickly, but sometimes we have to be patient.
Cub Scout 3: A Chinese proverb says, “The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
Cub Scout 4: This means we have to keep trying to accomplish our goals, even if it is just a little at a time.
Cub Scout 5: We’ve all heard the saying “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
Cub Scout 6: Sometimes things don’t go our way. But don’t give up.
Leader: Perseverance means be patient, keep trying, and don’t give up.
