Cubmaster Benediction Closing

Heart of America Council

Have the boys make the signs and repeat the words after you

May the sign of good Cub Scouts              (Cub Scout sign)

And the Spirit of Akela                 (two fingers on forehead)

Be with you and me                            (point to you and me)

Until our foot steps                                   (walking hands)

Cross                                                        (cross arms at wrists)

Again, Again, and Again                       (two fingers on arm)

Amen,                                             (arms folded across chest)

Cub Scout Train Closing

Heart of America Council

Set Up Five people that match the positions in the ceremony.  Each is to have a large train car cut out with their word son back in LARGE print

Adult Leader: (Holding engine) Today I am a Scout leader, but when I was their age, I was a Scout. I came on board as a leader, to pass on to these boys the fun I had as a boy.

Den Chief: (Holding next car) Today I am a Boy Scout, but before that I was a Cub Scout. Cub Scouting was fun, and it prepared me to be more independent and confident.

Webelos Scout: (Holding next car) Today I am a Webelos Scout. I was a Wolf and Bear where I learned to have fun with my family. Now I am learning more fun things to do with my den.

Cub Scout (Wolf or Bear): (Holding next car) Today I am a Cub Scout. I came on board to have fun and do things with my family and friends.

Tiger Cub: (Holding Caboose) Today I am a Tiger Cub, and my fun has just started.

All: All aboard for never-ending Fun!

Train Closing Ceremony

Baltimore Area Council

Cub Scouts hold large cutouts as they read their lines off the back.

Cub # 1:       (Holding train engine) When engineering a project, keep on the right track. This way you never will be caught slack.

Cub # 2:       (holding canoe) As the wise old Indian would say to you, learn to paddle your own canoe.

Cub # 3:       (Holding covered wagon) The covered wagon served folks well in its day. But dont get in a rut - you wont go far that way.

Cub # 4:       (Holding plane) To guide your life, like a good pilot youll find. Its important to keep an open mind.

Cub # 5:       (Holding car) If spinning your wheels causes a terrible rumbling. You may not be moving, but just sitting there grumbling.

Cub # 6:       (Holding space ship) Just as an astronaut flies into space, with a lot of determination, you can go anyplace.

Cub # 7:       (Holding GO sign) We do our best to help the pack go, while having Cub Scout fun.

Cub # 8:       (Holding picture of a meandering trail) And when its time to part and each take a separate trail, well do our best for God and country, In that we will not fail.

(Cub Scouts prop cutouts against wall and join hands in the Living Circle while the Den Chief reads the following:)

Cub # 9:       (Or Den Chief) Just like the cars in a train, were joined together as one; We do our best to help the pack go, while having Cub Scout fun And when its time to part and each take a separate trail, Well do our best for God and Country -in that we will not fail. We remember our Cub Scout Promise in everything we do, Wont you all please join us as we pledge ourselves anew.

(Leads all in Cub Scout Promise)
