Misc. Den Closing Ceremonies

The Living Circle

-May be used alone as a ceremony or it may be used as part of one. It reminds a Cub Scout of the fine friendships he is making in Cub Scouting.

-It is made by a den and its leaders in a close circle, facing inward. They turn slightly to the right in the circle, and each extends his LEFT hand into the circle, palm downward with the left thumb pointing to the right.

-Each person grasps the extended left thumb of the one to his left... thus making a complete live circle handclasp. Meanwhile, the right hand of each is held high above the head in the Cub Scout sign.

-Use almost any saying to end the meeting:

Promise, Law, etc., will work, or make up something yourself.


-Form a circle around the United States flag or the den flag. Cubs then salute and sing "America" "God Bless America", or any other patriotic song.

Cub Scout Ideals

-Den forms fellowship circle (arms crossed in front with right over left, grabbing the hands of the scout on each side of him) and repeat together the "Law of the Pack, Cub Scout Promise, and Cub Scout motto.

Friendship Circle

-Each Cub has a 3-foot section of rope. Boys tie rope with a square know to each others rope (both sides ), and pull back to form a taut circle. Leader says, "You are now a part of a group of close friends, held together by the square knot... a symbol of friendship. Let us give our Cub Scout Promise.

My Flag

-A week before this ceremony is to be used, ask each Cub Scout to prepare and bring to the next den meeting a 10-line statement on "What My Flag Means to Me". Leader selects an interesting one and has its author read the statement.
