Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

Everyone loves to play games!! This month Cub Scouts and their families will have fun playing board games, and solving puzzles and mazes.  This is a great opportunity for adults to teach boys the games they used to play as youths.  How about making new games?  Boys can share their games with others or challenge others with their word searches, jigsaw puzzles, or mazes.  Have a family game night at your Pack Meeting or at a den meeting.  This month would be a good time to work on the Chess Belt Loop and pin.


Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

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

ü  Fun and Adventure - Cub Scouts will have fun playing their favorite games and learning new ones.

ü  Personal Achievement - Boys will feel a sense of personal achievement as they master puzzles, mazes, and new games.

ü  Sportsmanship and Fitness - Cub Scouts will learn fair play and respect for others

The core value highlighted this month is:

ü  Honesty, Cub Scouts will learn the importance of following the rules and being honest while playing games.

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!!


Many thanks to my friends at Sam Houston, Great Salt Lake and Catalina Councils for sending me their new Pow Wow CD's and for Catalina and GSLC - actual paper books!!

And to Wendy at Chief Seattle Council giving me the link to their on-line Pow Wow Book.  (Find it in the website list)


I will be setting up my swap CD soon. 


There were a lot of Pow Wows on my list for early.  I hope some of you can trade CDs this month so I can have some good info for the next Baloo.  Just write me, either , or via the website or and I will get you mailing info.  One year I received the Alapaha Area Council Book via E-mail.  That works, too.  Thanks to good friends I have the SHAC, Great Salt Lake and Catalina Council books and will soon have National Cap. 

I can never have too many.  Thanks for your help.
