Outdoor Closing Ceremony

Personnel:    Leader in uniform, song leader, Pack 

Equipment:   U.S. Flag, a copy of the Outdoor code and the song, "God Bless America", for everyone to read and sing from.  

Setting:        The leader emphasizes the importance of the right attitude toward the natural resources of our country. The leader then uses the Outdoor Code as a responsive reading, with the Pack giving the response. At the end all sing,

"God Bless America" as the flag is held aloft, or lowered slowly. 

Leader: As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my outdoor manners - 

Pack: I will treat the outdoors as a heritage to be improved for our greater enjoyment. I will keep my trash and garbage out of America's waters, fields, woods, and roadways. 

Leader: Be careful with fire --

Pack: I will prevent wildfires. I will build my fires in a safe place, and be sure it is out before I leave. 

Leader: Be considerate in the outdoors --

Pack: I will treat public and private property with respect. I will remember that use of the outdoors is a privilege I can lose by  abuse. 

Leader: Be conservation minded --

Pack: I will learn how to use good conservation of soil, waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, and wild life; and I will urge others to do the same. I will use sportsmanlike methods in all my outdoor activities. 

Song Leader: Let us close by singing " God Bless America ". (as everyone sings the flag is held up in front of the audience, or if the flag is being flown from a flag pole about half way through the song the flag is slowly lowered  and scouts dismissed.)
