This is a good ceremony to be performed by the Webelos Den, with the Webelos Leader acting as narrator.
ARRANGEMENT: 9 boys holding large cards lettered with these words - INFLUENCING, DEVELOPING, ENCOURAGING, IMPROVING, STRENGTHENING, FOSTERING, SHOWING, PROVIDING, PREPARING. At the appropriate place in the narration, each boy raises his card high so it can be seen by the audience.
NARRATOR: Cub Scouting is a program of Boy Scouts of America, for parents, leaders and institutions, to use with boys 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 years of age, for the purpose of:
INFLUENCING: Influencing the development of the boy's character and spiritual life.
DEVELOPING: Developing habits and attitudes of good citizenship.
ENCOURAGING: Encouraging good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in mind and body.
IMPROVING: Improving understanding within the family.
STRENGTHENING: Strengthening the ability to get along with other boys and respect other people.
FOSTERING: Fostering a sense of personal achievement by developing new interests and skills.
SHOWING: Showing how to be helpful and do ones best.
PROVIDING: Providing fun and exciting new things to do.
PREPARING: Preparing them to become BOY SCOUTS. (the boy holding this card could be in Scout uniform)
NARRATOR: I would like to ask now that all of us - boys, leaders, parents - rededicate ourselves to Scouting. This task takes love, it takes dedication, it takes knowledge. Love and dedication comes from us, but knowledge is gained by experience and training. Dedicated parents and trained leaders are necessary to make Cub Scouting work. Let's "DO OUR BEST" for our pack. Good night Scouts!
