Cub Scouting Is A Beginning

SETUP: The Cubmaster presents the pack flag and asks each den to send one boy to the front. The boys grasp the flagstaff with their left hands and make the Cub Scout sign with their right hands.

CUBMASTER: Cub Scouts are asked to be loyal to their pack. Let's remind ourselves of that by repeating the Law of the Pack: (Boys repeat the Law of the Pack and return to their seats.)

CUBMASTER: Cub Scouting is a beginning, not an end in itself. It is the first step on the Scouting trail. It is a good idea to keep that in mind. And so I'd like to read something Lord Baden Powell, Scouting's founder, had to say about it. Baden Powell said: "The Wolf Cub pack is not designed as a separate organization, but part of a Scout group. The Cubmaster should work in close cooperation with Scouts and Scout leaders. He should make it plain to every new boy and to every new boy's parents that the Cub pack is only an anteroom to the Scout troop, and he should always keep the idea of becoming a Scout before the Cubs."

CUBMASTER: In the next couple of months, many of our Webelos Scouts will be graduating into Boy Scout troops. Let's do our best to make sure all Webelos Scouts have that opportunity.
