Scout spirit is mentioned in several of the requirements for Scouts BSA ranks. But what is Scout spirit and how does a Scout go about demonstrating it?
This Tiger den meeting plan covers most of the requirements for the Games Tigers Play adventure. This meeting is all about having fun and cooperating. For the final requirement, the Tigers can go to a sporting event. Note that it does not have to be a professional sporting event. There is nothing wrong with completing this requirement by watching a third grade soccer game. #CubScouts #BSA #ScoutMeIn
Learning the Scout Law will be more enjoyable with a Scout Law game. This game helps Scouts learn all twelve points of the law in order.
This prayer is attributed to Lord Baden-Powell himself. B-P clearly believed that faith was an important component of his Scouting program. So while Scouting is not specific to any particular faith, there is a spiritual aspect to it. This prayer, based on the Scout Law, would be appropriate for most groups of Scouts.
This is one of DS’s favorite scout songs. We hear this one a lot at camp, on hikes, and on hayrides. I’ll warn you that when they start singing this, they tend to sing it over and over and over again. The best I can describe the tune is that it is sort of a rap style tune.
A Scout is Reverent. This prayer incorporates the twelve points of the Scout Law.
I like the simplicity of the Scout Law. It is brief and therefore easy for youth to memorize. But it covers a lot of ground.
Webelos need to learn about the Scout Law for their Webelos badge and their Arrow of Light Award. This classic Scout song is a fun way to help them learn it.
