We have here with us this evening boys who have asked to join the fun and brotherhood of Cub Scouting.
These Bobcat candidates have indicated their desire to join our Pack by learning that which is required to become Cub Scouts; the Cub Scout Promise, The Law of the Pack, the meaning of Webelos, the Cub Scout sign and salute, and the Cub Scout handshake.
They have proven themselves worthy by passing the tests for acceptance by the Cub Scouts of America and our Pack.
Since Cub Scouting is a family-oriented organization, I wish to ask the parents of our Bobcat candidates these questions:
Will you accept the challenge of working with your son to help him complete the achievements required for advancement? If so, answer "I will".
Will you be faithful in your attendance at Pack meetings and other functions with your son? If so, answer "I will".
Will you assist when called upon to help our pack, in whatever way you are able? If so, answer "I will".
Bobcat candidates, you have heard your parents promise to assist you on the Cub Scout Trail. Now, will the candidates please answer these questions:
Will you do your best to live up to the Cub Scout Promise? If so, answer "I will".
Will you always remember and abide by the Law of the Pack? If so, answer "I will".
Will you also be faithful in your attendance at Pack meetings, den meetings, and other functions? If so, answer "I will".
Will you help your parents help you along the Cub Scout Trail? If so, answer "I will".
Members of Pack, you have heard our Bobcat candidates and their parents answer the questions I have asked of them. They have been found worthy of joining our Pack and the fun and fellowship of Cub Scouting. Do you accept them as fellow member of Pack? If so, Cub Scouts and parents, please answer "We do".
(Light Candle) Bobcat candidates, the candle I am now lighting represents the Spirit of Cub Scouting.
May it ever burn in your hearts and shine from your eyes.
With the help of our Webelos leaders and your parents we will now induct you as Bobcats in Pack ______. Welcome to Cub Scouting and to our Pack.
