The Bobcat Campfire Induction

Equipment: Artificial campfire as shown here, a stick for each Cub Scout who will receive the Bobcat badge; Bobcat badges and straight pins.

Personnel: Cubmaster, new Bobcats and their parents.

The Cubmaster calls forward the Bobcats and asks them to form a semicircle behind the fire; parents are behind their sons.

CUBMASTER: Cub Scouts, you have learned the things a boy must know to join our pack. Will you join me in repeating the things you learned-The Cub Scout Promise. (Leads the Promise)

Parents, we welcome you into our pack, too. You know that you have a role in Cub Scouting as a guide to your son's advancement and as a participant and helper in den and pack activities. If you accept this responsibility, please say, "We will." (Parent's give assent.)

This campfire is a symbol of the warmth and friendship you will find in our pack. Will you Bobcats please show that you wish to join the pack by adding your stick to the fire, showing that you want to do your best and be a friend to the other boys in the pack. (Boys place sticks.)

(Cubmaster gives the parents a Bobcat badge and asks them to pin it on son's shirt.)
