Bobcat Induction Ceremony - Scout Spirit Key

Equipment: Oversized key cut out and painted gold, written on it is "Scout Spirit, and an old key on a string.

CM: We have with us tonight someone who has just joined the Cub Scout program.  Will                and his parents please come forward?

The Cub Scout program will face you with many challenges.  You will be required to attend weekly den meetings and monthly pack meetings.  You will need to work with leaders and also at home with your parents.  In order to achieve the highest rank in Cub Scouting, you must now set your sights on the Arrow of Light.  Many times you may get discouraged because the trail seems steep and hard to climb.

There is a key to achieving each of these goals.  The key to Cub Scouting.  Do you know what the key is? (Wait for answer of no and the produce the oversized key.)

The key to Scouting is "Scout Spirit."  "Scout Spirit" includes teamwork.  It includes fair play and good sportsmanship.  It includes that "something special' that makes scouts want to be the best they can be at everything they do.  This key will unlock the door of achievement.

Remember, with this key to Scouting - "Scout Spirit" - you can now step on the Scouting trail.  This small key is a reminder of the Key to Cub Scouting.  (hang key around his neck.)

And that first step is rewarded with the Bobcat rank.  I will present this award to your parents in token of the help they have given you.  They may pin it on your uniform.  (Do so.)
