Cub Scout Spirit Opening
By: GSLC Posted On: 2019-12-21

Preparation: Set up four candles and lights.

Cubmaster: As Scouts and leaders, we are following a trail blazed by millions of boys, men, and
women. All of them have had that Scouting spirit, which the flame of this light rep
resents (lights first candle.)

Cub Scout 1: What is Cub Scout spirit?

Cub Scout 2: It is the three things we promise to do in the Cub Scout Promise.

Cub Scout 3: The first part is, “I promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my
country.” (lights second candle or light.)

Cub Scout 4: The second part is “to help other people.” (lights third light.)

Cub Scout 5: The third is “to obey the Law of the Pack. (lights last light.)

Cub Scout 6: While these lights burn, please stand and say the Cub Scout Promise.

Cubmaster: (After the recitation.) The Olympic Creed states: “The most important
thing in…(being a good sport,) is not to win but to take part, just as the
most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The
essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well.” (Baron de Cobertin)
