Cub Scouts Have Their Own Guiding Stars
Posted On: 2020-12-04


We have had lots of fun with water at this activity. As we've played in the water, we can also think about the sailors who sail on the water. How do they do it, and not get lost? How did the big ships of long ago, sail across the ocean and find their destination?

Do you think that they ever used the North Star as a guide? For thousands of years, men have known that the North Star does not move. Seamen have used the North Star and other heavenly bodies to guide their ships to port ever since they first dared leave the sight of land. Even today, the stars are important in navigation for ships, jet planes, and spaceships.

Cub Scouts have their own guiding stars to help them through life. There are families, churches, schools, and of course, Cub Scouting! Their navigational aids are the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. They tell us how we should act and what we should do for ourselves and for others. The Promise and Law of the Pack are just like the stars by which the seaman steers his ship. Please repeat the Law of the Pack.
