These 7 Methods are the ways that we achieve and support the 10 Purposes:
Living the Ideals
Cub Scouting’s values are embedded in the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Cub Scout motto, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, and salute. These practices help establish and reinforce the program’s values in cub scouts and the leaders who guide them.
Belonging to a Den
The den—a small group of boys and girls who are about the same age—is the place where Cub Scouting starts. In the den, Cub Scouts develop new skills and interests, they practice sportsmanship and good citizenship, and they learn to do their best, not just for themselves but for the den as well.
Recognition is important to children. The advancement plan provides fun for the cub scouts, gives them a sense of personal achievement as they earn badges, and strengthens family understanding as adult family members and their den leader work with boys on advancement projects.
Involving Family and Home
Whether a Cub Scout lives with two parents or one, has many siblings or is an only child, his family is an important part of Cub Scouting. Parents and adult family members provide leadership and support for Cub Scouting and help ensure that the children have a good experience in the program.
Participating in Activities
Cub Scouts participate in a wide array of activities, including games, projects, skits, stunts, songs, outdoor activities, trips and service projects. Besides being fun, these activities offer opportunities for growth, achievement, character building and family involvement.
Serving Home and Neighborhood
Cub Scouting focuses on the home and neighborhood. It
purposes. Of course not everything in Cub Scouting has to be serious – far from it! Silly songs, energetic games, funny skits, yummy snacks and just spending time with your friends and family all have their place in the program.
