FOCUS

Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

Dive right in as Cub Scouts spend a month enjoying water activities and learning about water creatures and water conservation.  It is a perfect time to learn about safety rules in and around water.  This month's pack activity might be a safety carnival, an outdoor raingutter regatta, or a pack beach party.  This is an ideal opportunity for the boys to work on the Swimming or Fishing belt loops and pins. 

CORE VALUES

Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

Some of the purposes of Cub Scouting developed through this month’s theme are:

ü  Personal Achievement, Cub Scouts will gain self-confidence and self-esteem as they develop their swimming skills and water safety knowledge.

ü  Character Development, Cub Scouts will learn the importance of water conservation..

ü  Preparation for Boy Scouts, By learning swimming safety Cub Scouts will be ready for bigger adventures in Boy Scouts. 

The core value highlighted this month is:

ü  Responsibility, Cub Scouts will gain a sense of responsibility through the Buddy System and other safety rules in and around water.

Can you think of others??? Hint – look in your Cub Scout Program Helps.  It lists different ones!! All the items on both lists are applicable!!  You could probably list all twelve if you thought about it!!
