Ideas for September Pack Meeting – Cooperation

The core value for Cub Scouts for the month of September is Cooperation. According to the program helps cooperation is:

Being helpful and working together with others toward a common goal. Cooperation is a key element in teamwork. Cub Scouts will gain a better understanding of the importance of supporting each other as they play games and learn new skills.

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

  • Play some cooperative games. Here are a few ideas:
  • There are some more ideas in the program helps
  • Have a fireman visit. Learn how Scouts can cooperate with them to stay safe and by being prepared for an emergency. Firemen usually give very good presentations on this. Make sure they show them the fire truck. Our local fire department does a visit to our pack about every other year, and it is always a big hit.
  • Similarly, you can have a policeman visit and talk about crime prevention.
  • Have a local animal shelter or wildlife sanctuary bring some animals in and talk about what Scouts can do to help.

What are your ideas for cooperation?

    We are going to have the Soccer Coach from our local Community College come and talk to the scouts about teamwork and cooperation and him show them some drills. Then we are going to go out and have a soccer game and complete the requirements for the belt loop.

    An activity we will be doing this month was shown to me at a Round Table meeting. It is called the T-shirt Relay.

    You place 4 scouts in a group and one of them puts on a too big for him T-shirt. He then holds hands with another scout so that they could make an arch if they raised their hands above their heads.

    The other two scouts help move the shirt from one boy to the other. After that the boys let go of each others hands and the boy with the shirt holds hands with one of the boys that helped move the shirt from the first boy to the second boy. The process repeats itself until all the boys have worn the shirt.
