CLOSING CEREMONIES

Do Your Best

San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils

Scene: Boys with key words hold up cards saying "DO YOUR BEST"

  • DO unto others as they should do to you.
  • That's called the Golden Rule.
  • YOU'RE all Cub Scouts of Gold and Blue,
  • The Pack Law is your special tool,
  • BEST way we know to celebrate this season,
  • Is in giving your best to others,
  • And now we wish you, for that very reason,

All:          Happy holidays! May we all be brothers.

End of Year Rededication

San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils

Setup: You'll need nine candles, one of which is taller than the others. The CM should light them all and the room should be darkened.

CM:      This last ceremony of the year is one of rededication. Five candles represent our Cub Scout ranks of Tiger, Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos. (Ask Tigers to stand.)

CM:     Tigers, if you promise to do your best in 2006 recite the Tiger motto.

Tigers:Search – Discover-Share

CM:     (Extinguish one candle flame. Ask Bobcats and Wolf and Bear dens to stand) Bobcats, Wolves and Bears, if you promise to do your best in 2006 and to follow the Cub Scout Promise, obey the Law of the Pack and advance further, please recite the Cub Scout Promise.

Cubs:  I promise to do my best, To do my duty to God and my country, To help other people and To obey the Law of the Pack.

CM:     (Extinguish three candle flames. Ask Webelos dens to stand) Webelos, if you promise to do your best in 2006 and to follow on the trail toward the Arrow of Light, please recite the Law of the Pack.

Cubs:    The Cub Scout follows Akela. The Cub Scout helps the Pack go. The Pack helps the Cub Scout grow. The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

CM:     These three candles stand for Follows, Helps, and Gives - which mean that you as Cub Scouts will be loyal. (Extinguish their three flames.)

CM:     The large candle, the spirit of scouting, still burns as it does in the hearts of Cub Scouts everywhere. May it continue to burn brightly in your heart throughout 2006 as we go onward and upward in Pack ___. Good night, Cub Scouts.
