1. SALUTE WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND.

2. HOLD YOUR FINGERS AS YOU DO FOR THE CUB SCOUT SIGN.

3. KEEP THE TWO STRAIGHT FINGERS CLOSE TOGETHER.

4. TOUCH THE TIPS OF THOSE FINGERS TO YOUR CAP.

5. IF YOU ARE NOT WEARING A CAP, TOUCH YOUR EYEBROW.

A salute is a way to show respect. We salute the flag to show respect to our country.

THE CUB SCOUT SIGN

"THE TWO PARTS OF THE PROMISE"

1. RAISE YOUR RIGHT ARM STRAIGHT UP.

2. ON YOUR RIGHT HAND HOLD UP TWO FINGERS IN A VICTORY/PEACE SIGN.

The two fingers stand for two parts of the Promise---

1. to help other people

2. to obey

They look like a wolf's ears ready to listen to Akela. Give the Cub Scout Sign when you say the Cub Scout Promise or the Law of the Pack.

BOBCAT GAMES

Bruce's Blocks Game

Law of the Pack Slats

Skis View 1

Do Your Best Slat

Promise Slats

Skies View 2

Ski Race

Take four 2"x 6" boards and cut them to 6 ft lengths. This will give you two sets of skis to race with. Put in two eyelets on either side of each board to make four pairs evenly spaced. Now make rope handles for each set of eyelets. (See the enclosed picture) Once you have the skis made. Have four boys at a time get on the two boards. They will need to figure out how to move them across the room as a team. Once they get it down, have races.

Bobcat Race

Have each boy make a bobcat from the enclosed directions or prepare them ahead of time. Each Bobcat will need to be about 9" tall. You will need to make a rigid crossbar that is the same height above the ground as the hole in the Bobcat. You will need to put a nail in the crossbar for each Bobcat and tie a rope to the nail. You will need a 20 to 30 feet of rope for each Bobcat. Tie the rope onto the nail and then thread the rope through the hole in the Bobcat. Start with the Bobcat's close to the crossbar. The boys will then pull on the rope to walk their Bobcats toward them. First one back wins. (Tip the hole will need to be slightly larger than the hole in the Bobcat.

Akela Says

Played the same as Simon Says substituting Akela for Simon. Make sure to include the Cub Scout Sign, Salute and Handshake. Also make sure to include lots of silliness.

Block Mix-up

Take three blocks and write portions of different phrases on the blocks where the boys can move the blocks around and turn them over etc. to make different Cub Scout Phrases. (i.e. Do Your Best; Be Your Silliest, etc.)

Line up the Lines

Take the Promise (or the Law of the Pack) and write it out on strips of paper in large letters. If you want, you can cut the lines up into chunks or half-lines. Then have a team challenge for the whole group. Mix up the strips on the floor or in a box. One by one, a Cub hops to the box, grabs a strip, and brings it back to the group. The next Cub hops up and gets another strip and brings it back to the group. Hopping is done to give the group time to arrange the strips in order. The group has to agree on how to arrange the strips. When done, they recite the Promise together.

Pick-up Sticks Game

Write the Promise (or Law of the Pack) on craft sticks or paint stir sticks. Divide the Cubs into teams, with each team having a set of sticks. One by one, the Cubs go to the table, pick-up then drop the sticks on the table and reassemble them. Have an adult tally the score for each team (award 1 point each time the Promise or Law is assembled correctly).

Be a Reporter Game

This requires a tape recorder and microphone. Each boy records the both the Promise and the Law of the Pack on the recorder. Then he plays it back. This repetition works really great, while the boys get a blast listening to their recorded VOIces.

Mystery Bag

Let the Cubs earn a chance to grab a prize from the "mystery bag". This is a bag filled with trinkets and small stuff like pencils, stickers, coins, etc. At the beginning of the meeting, announce the "secret phrase" (i.e. one line from the Promise). Let the Cubs repeat it a few times right then. At the end of the meeting, each Cub must whisper it to the leader and get it correct for a chance to reach into the mystery bag. Each time this method is used, make the secret phrase longer and longer until it's the whole Promise.

Roll the Dice Game

This requires one dice (a big one if you have it). Each boy rolls the dice and depending on what number comes up, he performs one of the parts of the Bobcat trail. Score points for each boy who does the task correctly. Add some flavor -let a roll of 4 yield an extra roll.

Here are the tasks for each number:

1 = recite the Cub Scout Promise

2 = recite the Law of Pack and tell its meaning

3 = recite the Cub Scout Motto & tell what Webelos means 4 = show the Cub Scout sign & tell its meaning

5 = show the Cub Scout handshake & tell its meaning 6 = show the Cub Scout salute & tell its meaning

Texas Handshake

Played like Duck, Duck Goose, but instead of tapping the person you say "Howdy Pardner!" and give them the Cub Scout Handshake, then you chase them back to their spot, just like you would in Duck, Duck Goose.

Bobcat Circle Game

Played similar to Duck, Duck, Goose. But this time when It taps a boy on the shoulder they go in opposite directions until they meet, then they give the Cub Scout sign, salute and handshake. It then chases the selected boy back to his spot in the circle just like you would in Duck, Duck Goose.

Delivering Goodwill

You will need large inflated balloons. Divide Cub Scouts into teams of three to five. Two teams race at a time. Scouts in each team line up side by side and spread their arms to both sides, holding inflated balloons between each two scouts. Tell them that the balloons represent goodwill and need to be delivered with care and speed. Teams race from one end of the room to the other without dropping any of the balloons. If they drop a balloon, they must pick it up before continuing. If space permits, challenge participants to make larger teams.

Cub Scout Uniform Game

Have a Cub Scout slip in with his uniform rearranged in the following manner and let the new scouts tell him what is wrong: Cap on backwards, Campaign button on his cap, wearing a den chief cord, service star on his neckerchief, neckerchief twisted in a roll, neckerchief tied around his neck, belt buckle worn to one side, one sleeve rolled up, button unbuttoned, shirt untucked, pocket turned inside out on pants.

THE SECRET CODE -iHEEL

Here is a code whee I that your Cubs can use to keep their messages absolutely secret. one will ever figure out the

ded messages unless they have the code wheel.

Trace the code whee Ls on paper, cut out and paste on cardboard. Place under a heavy book to dry. If you prefer draw the code whee Ls directly on cardboard.

Cut out the circles and place the smaller cirle marked ''Key'' on top of the larger circle. Punch a hole in the center of both sections and fasten 1,1ith a paper fastener.

For your first message, turn the "Key" circle so that the number 15 is directly under the letter itA"

At the top of the message irrite "A-IS" 'ivhich explains the key to the code. NO~o1 write the message, using corresponding numbers instead of letters.. "How are

,u?" l-iould be written "22-3-11 -6-19 13-3-9?"

On receiving your message, your buddy sets his code wheel to "A-IS" which is written on the top of

your message. He then

has the key for reading the coded message.

Ttventy-six different

codes can betvritten

by using the code

whee 1 in various

combinat ions of

letters and numbers.

To '.frite a code place "Key" circle within this circle

Substitute number for letters

Interpretation of the Cub Scout Promise

Props: Each Cub Scout holding a sign with his part of the Cub Scout Promise on it.

I, PROMISE - A promise is a solemn vow, where your good reputation is at stake.

TO DO MY BEST - Your best is giving all you've got when you have something to do ... and working on it with all your heart and all your strength and devotion you have.

TO DO MY DUTY - To do the job; to meet the responsibilities; to do what must be done, not just half-way, but completely and fully so that you're proud of your work.

TO GOD AND MY COUNTRY - First, duty to God. Fulfill your religious responsibilities and uphold our religious beliefs. Second, duty to country. I know you've been told how lucky you are to live in a free country and I hope you are aware of what freedom means. You should try to be a good citizen.

TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE - To help ... it doesn't say how much. It could mean saving a life or changing a tire or carrying a bag of groceries. To help other people ... not just your own family. The best time to help is when you have to go out of your way to do it.

TO OBEY THE LA W OF THE PACK So that we will all remember just what this law includes, will you please stand and repeat it with me?

BOBCAT INDUCTION CEREMONY Taken from the Golden Fiesta Pow Wow Handbook 1979- LFC-BSA

Equipment: Bobcat Investiture board with candles. (See Next Page)

Personnel: Cubmaster, Bobcat Candidates, parents

Cubmaster: The top three candles on our ceremony board represent the Cub Scout Promise. This is a promise which binds all Cub Scouts together in a common goal. It is through this promise that we are guided and directed.

I light the white candle which stands for "I promise to do my best." This is not always easy to do. Cub Scouts should do the best they can.

I light the red candle which stands for the second part of the promise "To Help Other People." Helping others not only makes them happy, but it makes the Cub Scout happy too. You help other people by doing a good turn each day.

I light the blue candle which stands for loyalty and obedience. The third part of the promise "Obey the Law of the Pack" means that you will follow Akela, who is any respected leader. You will be loyal to our pack and make the best pack in the country. You give goodwill, which means that your attitude of helpfulness and friendship can benefit other people as well as yourself.

Together these three candles represent the Cub Scout Promise, (point to the white candle) I promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my country. (point to the red candle) to help other people (point to the blue candle) and to obey the law of the Pack.

In the center of the board are three white candles representing the Law of the Pack. (Light the first candle) The Cub Scout follows Akela. (Light the 2nd Candle) The Cub Scout helps the Pack go; the Pack helps the Cub Scout grow. (Light the 3rd candle) The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

These same three white candles represent the Cub Scout's loyalty to God, Home and Country ... when you give the Cub Scout Salute, three of your fingers are hidden (show the salute) and those three fingers stand for God, Home and Country. Please give the salute, (they do) and remember the hidden meaning.

The remaining candles stand for the ranks of Cub Scouting. We will light the Bobcat candle and the candles of the other ranks as they are presented their awards tonight.

(Present each Bobcat badge to parents and boy. Handshakes and congratulations all around. Bobcats and parents all return to their seats.

The Test ora Zulu Boy

Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster, Bobcat candidates and their parents.

EQUIPMENT

White adhesive tape, Bobcat badges, safety pins.

ARRANGEMENT

The Cubmaster brings boys and their parents forward.

Cub master: [Boys' names] have successfully completed the test for Bobcat. Before we present them with the badge of the Bobcat, let me tell you all a story of long ago, about the test young Zulu boys were given.

Before they were allowed to become scouts and warriors, Zulu boys had to pass a pretty tough examination. This is what they had to do:

When a boy was nearly old enough to be a warrior, he was taken aside, stripped of his clothing, and painted white all over. He was given a shield and a small spear with which to protect himself and to kill small animals. He was then sent into the bush.

Anyone seeing the boy while he was painted white would hunt and kill him; and that white paint took about a month to wear off-it would not wash off.

So, for a month the boy had to hide in the bush and live as well as he could. He had to follow the tracks of the deer, and creep near enough to spear the animal to get food and clothing for himself. He had to make fire to cook with by rubbing two sticks together; he had no matches. He had to be careful not to let his fire smoke too much, or it would catch the eye of scouts on the lookout for him. He had to be able to run long distances, to climb trees, and to swim rivers in order to escape from his pursuers. He had to be brave, and to stand up to a lion or any other wild animal that attacked him.

He had to know which plants were good to eat and which were poisonous. He had to make his own cooking pots out of tree bark or clay. He had to build himself a well-hidden hut to live in. He had to take care that wherever he went, he left no tracks for his enemies to follow. If he snored when he was asleep, it would give him away to a keen-eared enemy. He soon learned to sleep with his mouth shut, and to breathe quietly through his nose.

For a month he had to live this life, sometimes in burning heat, sometimes in cold and rain. When at last the white stain had worn off, he was able to return to his village, where he was received with great joy and allowed to take his place among the young warriors of the tribe. He could go on to become a 'ring-top'-that is, a proven warrior, who was allowed to wear a ring on his head. Then he could possibly go on and earn the honorable title of wolf. But you can imagine that many boys who went out did not

get through their white period at all. Some were killed by wild animals; some were killed by enemies; and some died of starvation, exposure, or by drowning. Only the best among them survived.

It was a pretty stiff exam, wasn't it?

Cub Scouting has its tests also. With the help of your parents, you have completed the first test of a Cub Scout-Bobcat.

It is now my pleasure and joy to present this badge and to call you a 'Bobcat.' (The Cubmaster gives the badges to parents to pin on the boys.)

Are you now ready to follow the [Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos] trail? (The boys answer.) You have answered that you are ready. Then seal that pledge by giving the Cub Scout Promise. (They do.) Let me now, as the leader of this tribe, give you a reminder of the tests that lay before you. (The Cubmaster places a strip of white adhesive tape on each boy's forehead.) Remember that some do not successfully complete the tests. In the Cub Scout Promise, you promised to do your best. If you always remember to do your best, you will successfully walk the trail of the [Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos]. Go now and do your best, and return to me as an honorable [Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos] Scout.

Induction of New Families Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster (or committee chairman, advancement chairman, etc.), Bobcat candidates and parents.

EQmPMENT

A table, a balanced board with a candle on each end, Bobcat badges.

Cubmaster: (Addressing audience.) We are happy to welcome all the families with their sons who are here to our pack. (The Cubmaster calls the names of all new families.) Will you please come forward. (Parents and sons come forward.)

On the table before us is a unique candle set. There are only two candies. One candle stands for us, the parents. The other candle stands for our sons.

With both candles in place, the candle set is in balance. Should we remove the parents' candle (the Cubmaster removes one candle), the Cub Scout candle goes down. This is what will happen if we, the parents, do not assist our Cub Scout sons. (The Cubmaster returns the candle to bring the pair back into balance.)

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster, four Cub Scouts, four den leaders, assistant Cubmaster, Bobcat candidates and parents.

EQUIPMENT

Four cards: three bearing one letter each of the word C-U-B and one with the complete word SCOUTS; Bobcat badges; safety pins. (A candle or flashlight could be lighted with each letter for added color and drama.)

Cubmaster: Friends, we welcome you to our ceremony for new Cub Scout families. Four of our Cub Scouts are holding cards that spell CUB SCOUT'S. Each letter by itself stands for something special.

1st Den Leader: 'C' stands for courtesy. A Cub Scout is courteous. He is courteous to his elders, his friends, his teachers, and especially his parents. He is courteous in all that he says and does.

2nd Den Leader: 'U", stands for unity. When a boy joins a pack, he becomes a member of a den, too. He does not work alone but with other boys. He learns to get along with others.

3rd Den Leader: 'B' stands for bravery. The Cub Scout is courageous enough to stand up for what he thinks is right-honesty and fair play-thereby making the world a better place in which to live.

4th Den Leader: The word 'Scouts' begins and ends with'S.' 'Sf stands for service. A boy not only serves himself while he is a Cub Scout, but he also serves others. He helps spread goodwill.

Cub master: You have started up the Cub Scout trail. You are now a Bobcat candidate. There are other ranks to be earned before you are eligible to become a Scout. There's the Wolf, the Bear, the Webelos badge, and the Arrow of Light Award.

You have come here tonight seeking admission to the friendship and fun of Cub Scouting. You have probably attended a meeting of the den you would like to join. You have learned those things necessary to become a Bobcat Cub Scout. Will you give the Cub Scout sign and repeat the Cub Scout Promise. (The Cub master may lead this.)

Assistant Cubmaster: Parents, we welcome you. Cub Scouting is for the whole family. Fun and friendship are found within this circle, because we have all joined hands to make it happen. As parents, you have certain responsibilities in Cub Scouting. We expect you to attend the monthly pack meetings and work with your son on his achievements. We will expect you to assist, when called upon along with the other parents, in various leadership capacities. Will you accept this responsibility?

Parents: We will.

Cubmaster: Please pin this Bobcat badge on your son, making him an official Cub Scout. Each time your son earns an award, it will be your privilege to present his badge or award. We expect that you will work just as hard as he does on some of the projects. You start together up the Cub Scout trail. Remember always the Cub Scout motto: Do Your Best.

This Is Cub Scouting

Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL Cubmaster, six parents.

EQUIPMENT

A log board with six candles, a table.

ARRANGEMENT

The room lights are out. A candleholder with six candles, three blue and three yellow, is ' on a table. The six parents each light a candle and present their part of the ceremony.

1st Parent: Some people think Cub Scouting is only for boys, but it isn't. Cub Scouting is for the family.

2nd Parent: Mothers and dads, as they work in Cub Scouting with their boys, are able to maintain their natural relationship with them, yet they come to see their boy's play and leisure in a new light. The Cub Scout advancement program ensures closer boy-parent relationships.

3rd Parent: Cub Scouts arc considerate of others. They promise to help other people and to do their best. When parents sign their boy's membership applications, they take as their motto: We will help our son do his best.

4th Parent: Cub Scouting is an introduction to the program of the Boy Scouts of America. Each part is packed with challenges most appropriate to the boy's age, and leads to the next phase. Thus, when our Cub Scouts join a Webelos den and earn the Arrow of Light Award, they are prepared to enter Boy Scouting.

5th Parent: Cub Scouting in all its phases operates to strengthen the family by living, playing, and growing together.

6th Parent: Today your boy is a second-grader. He has only a few more years of boyhood left before he looks away from home for his growing interests. What you do together today is important. Tomorrow may be too late.

Cubmaster: Will all Cub Scouts join me in the Cub Scout sign and repeat the Cub Scout Promise with me.

Cubmaster: The success of pack leaders is often measured by the extent to which parents support their Cub Scout sons and the pack program. Will the parents join me in the Cub Scout sign and repeat after me. "I, {name}, promise to do my best to help my son to be a good Cub Scout, to encourage him to fulfill the Cub Scout Promise and obey the Law of the Pack. I promise to assist him in his Cub Scout achievements and electives; to cooperate with the den leader, Cubmaster, and pack committee members; and to participate actively in Cub Scouting. "

Parent's Promise Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster, Bobcat candidates, parents.

EQUIPMENT

Bobcat badges and safety pins.

ARRANGEMENT

The candidates line up, facing the audience, their parents standing behind them. The boys give the Cub Scout sign and recite together the Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack. The Cubmaster leads the ceremony in a loud voice so that all the boys can hear him. Before starting, he asks the Cub Scouts to speak loudly.

Then all the Bobcat parents give the Cub Scout sign and repeat the following, one line at a time, after the Cubmaster:

As a parent of a Cub Scout, I will do my best

To help my boy

Live up to the Cub Scout Promise And obey the Law of the Pack.

I will work with my boy

On his achievements and projects. I will attend the pack meetings And help as needed

To make the pack go.

The Cubmaster then gives each boy the Cub Scout handshake and hands the Bobcat badges to the parents. The parents pin the badges on their sons' shirts.

Bobcat Induction Boys' Life Puzzle Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster, Bobcat candidates, parents, families.

EQUIPMENT

Covered cardboard, tape, Boys' Life covers, scissors, Bobcat badges. (Have one large piece of cardboard and one magazine cover for each Bobcat family inducted.)

ARRANGEMENT

Cubmaster calls the Bobcat Cub Scout and his family to the front. As he welcomes them to the pack, he cuts the Boys' Life cover into as many pieces as there are family members present. He gives each member of the family, the Cub Scout, parents, brothers, sisters, grandmother, etc., a piece and asks them to assemble the pieces into the complete picture and tape them on the board. He gives the family plenty of time. When they finish, he compliments them on how well they work together.

Cubmaster: As we have seen, this family does things well together. They know how to help each other accomplish goals. They know how to get things done. Cub Scouting is for the whole family. The accomplishments of one member of the family depend a lot on the rest of the family. It is that way in Cub Scouting. The achievements and awards earned will always depend on how well you work together.

(The Cubmaster presents the Bobcat badge to a parent, who in turn presents it to the Cub Scout son.)

Akela's Scale Author: Unknown Scouter

PERSONNEL

Cubmaster, den chief, den leader, Bobcat candidates, and parents.

EQUIPMENT

A table, a ceremonial board consisting of an arrow with three candles on a balance (wood dowels, painted blue and gold or designed as totem poles, could be substituted for candles), Bobcat badges, certificates of membership.

Cubmaster: Will the candidates and their parents please come forward and face the pack. (Pause.) You have come to be inducted into our Cub Scout family as members of Pack [number]. You are ready to start your adventure along Akela's trail.

Here is the arrow (points to ceremonial board) that points the way along the trail. You see on the arrow the badges you can earn: the Tiger, the Wolf, the Bear, the Webelos badges, and the Arrow of Light Award. The parts of Cub Scouting that do not show are the values you will learn and the good times you will have. This is the scale of Akela. Both the parents and the Cub Scouts are important to keep the scale in balance.

(To den chief) [Name], please light the candle representing the Cub Scouts. (Lights the candle on feather end.) (To den leader.) [Name], will you light the candle for the parents? (Points to the candle on the arrow point. If substituting, place dowels in arrow at the appropriate time.)

If the boy does not do his part, the scale is out of balance, and the program goes downhill. (Removes candle-or dowel-representing boys, then replaces it.) On the other hand, if the parent's part is taken away, the scale is out of balance in the other direction and the Cub Scout loses his way along Akela's trail. (Removes candle-or dowel representing parents, then replaces it.)

So you see, to keep Cub Scouting in perfect balance, both Cub Scouts and parents must take part in the activities by coming to meetings, following the leaders, and advancing from point to point along Akela's trail.

Now, boys give the Cub Scout sign and repeat the promise with me. (They repeat the Cub Scout Promise.) And, parents, will you please repeat the following: ''As a parent, I will do my best to aid and assist my son in his Cub Scout activities. I will encourage him with enthusiasm, criticize him with fairness, and judge him with leniency. And, realizing that Cub Scouting is a program of equal participation for boys and parents, I will assist as I am able, in serving as a leader, adviser, or worker."

Now, as Cubmaster of Pack [number], I am happy to welcome you into the pack. Parents, I will give you the Bobcat badges and certificates of membership to present to your sons.

Chief Akela's Bobcat Ceremony

Author: Pack 43 of Larkspur, CA

PERSONNEL

Akela (Cubmaster in Native American costume), Assistant Cubmaster, Den Leader(s), 6 Webelos Scouts, Bobcat candidates and their parents.

EQUIPMENT

• Advancement ladder

• Blank coup sticks for the new Bobcats

• Arrow of Light candelabra

• Script concealed on the shelf behind it

• Bobcat badges for advancing Cubs

ARRANGEMENT

The ceremony begins with the beating of the ceremonial drum by the Asst. Cubmaster. Akela then approaches the campfire from the center aisle, so that all present can see his regalia.

Akela: Why do you sound the ceremonial drum?

Asst. Cubmaster: Because we have boys who seek the fun of Cub Scouting.

Akela: Have these boys been properly prepared?

Asst. Cubmaster: Yes, Akela, they have. As Tiger Cubs they have learned the Tiger Cub motto. The Bobcat candidates now know the Cub Scout Motto, Promise, and Law of the Pack. They know the Cub Scout sign, salute, and handshake. Each boy has prepared himself to move to the next step of Cub Scouting by his thoughts, deeds, and participation in the Pack.

Akela: Many moons before the paleface came to America, the Indian lived and hunted in these great redwood forests. Food was plentiful. The fields were rich with berries, the water with fish, and the woods were full of game. The tribes lived in villages near the great "earth-mother" , who we call "Diablo".

I am Akela, the Great Chief of the Webelos tribe and the head of the council of braves. Our totem is the Arrow of Light, which is the fmal goal of all cub scouts and the highest honor they can earn. This board shows the Arrow of Light and points the way of the trail. The arch represents progress along the cub scout trail to boy scouts. The candle which I now light represents the Spirit of Akela and the light of Cub Scouts.

We learn our ways from the wisest of the forest animals. From the Wolf we learn the language of the ground, we learn to follow the tracks of other animals, and we learn the ways of the food of the forest. From the Bear, we learn the secrets of the trees and birds, the language of the air and the sky.

But to begin the Cub Scout journey, we follow the Bobcat, a tenacious creature which is always hungry for knowledge and adventure. (to the Cubmaster) Cubmaster, which boys are ready to take the sign of the Bobcat?

Asst. Cubmaster: Akela, we have _ boys who are prepared to take the sign of the Bobcat. (read the list), please come forward with your parents.

Akela: Do these boys know the things required to be a Cub Scout?

Asst. Cub master: Yes, Akela, they do. I would like the my Webelos Scouts to come forward at this time. Webelos means "We'll be Loyal Scouts" , so it is only right that these boys administer the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, Motto, Sign, Salute and Handshake.

First Webelos Scout: Boys, make the cub scout sign and recite the cub scout promise with me.

I (name) promise to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people and to obey the Law of the Pack. ("two'~

Akela: Each candle on the Board represents a part of the Cub Scout Promise. The first part of the promise is "to do my best" . As a Cub Scout, we do not ask or expect you to be perfect. But we expect you to do the best you possibly can as you seek the Arrow of Light. (name the first Bobcat) ______ ---" please step forward and light the first candle, which represents doing your best.

"To do my duty to God and my country" . Duty means what you ought to do. Practice your religion, be a good American, and obey our country 1 s laws. (name the second Bobcat) , please come forward and light the second candle, which represents doing your duty to God and country.

"To help other people" . When you receive your Bobcat badge, it will be given to you upside down. After you do a good deed, you can turn it right side up. This reminds us to always help others who are in need. (name the next Bobcat) , step forward and light the next candle which represents helping other people.

In the Cub Scout Promise, we say we will obey the Law of the Pack, knowledge of which is also a requirement of the first rank of Bobcat.

Second Webelos Scout: Boys, make the Cub Scout sign and recite the Law ofthe Pack with me:

The Cub Scout follows Akela. The Cub Scout makes the Pack go. The Pack makes the Cub Scout grow. The Cub Scout gives goodwill. (t'two")

This law has a special meaning for Cub Scouts. "The Cub Scout follows Akela." Akela may be your father, mother, teacher, den leader, or cubmaster. In fact, it can be anyone who helps you learn about the world around you, because a good scout listens and learns. Remember, any good leader must first

learn to follow. (name the next Bobcat) --' please step forward and light the first

candle, which represents following Akela.

"The Cub Scout makes the Pack go. " You are a member of a pack - Pack [ number] - and you are each a member of a den. (mention the specific dens now if appropriate) You help the pack go by attending all meetings and by completing the requirements and electives of each rank. By being an active scout you help others in your den and in the pack do the same. , please come forward and light the next candle, which represents the cub scout's role in supporting his pack.

"The Pack makes the Cub Scout grow." The other members of the pack will help you learn new things. You will do a lot of things together and have a lot of fun. Remember that as a group we can do much, much more than any of us can do alone. , please come forward and light the next candle, which represents the importance of teamwork in the success of our Pack.

"The Cub Scout gives goodwill." If you smile at others, they will smile back. Your first act as a Bobcat will be to do a good turn. Always think about what you can do for others - they don't have to be big things, for little things help, too. , please light the candle which represents the goodwill that Scouting brings allover the world.

Now we have lit all the candles, and you probably think you know all there is to being a cub scout. Well, in a way you do and in a way you don't. You will learn a great deal more. Remember that sometimes we are weak and falter. (snuff out a candle) If we falter once, the light on the path is still bright. But if you are weak and falter many times, see how the light dims into darkness (snuff out several candles). But if you are true to yourself, the light of Akela is always near, and if you do your best the light of Akela will help you find your way along the path as you follow the Arrow of Light in scouting. (relight candles)

Now you will demonstrate the other signs of Cub Scouting. Webelos Scout, do these candidates know the Cub Scout Motto?

3rd Webelos: Yes, Akela, they do. Candidates, repeat the Cub Scout Motto with me: "Do Your Best." You don't have to be perfect, just do your best. Akela, as you can see, they do know the Cub Scout Motto.

Akela: Webelos Scout, do they know the Cub Scout Sign?

4th Webelos: Yes, Akela, they do. Candidates, show me you know the Cub Scout Sign. Always make them with your arm straight and the wolf ears held high. This sign means everyone should be silent and attentive. It reminds us that before we speak, teach and lead, we must listen, learn and follow. Akela, as you can see, they do know the Cub Scout Sign.

Akela: Webelos Scout, do they know the Cub Scout Salute?

5th Webelos: Yes, Akela, they do. Candidates, show me you know the Cub Scout Salute. Hold your ann straight and be proud that you are an American and a Cub Scout. You will use the salute in countless flag ceremonies during your Cub Scout years. Akela, as you can see, they do know the Cub Scout Salute.

Akela: Webelos Scout, do they know the Cub Scout Handshake?

6th Webelos: Make the Cub Scout handshake with me. We will all now congratulate you on becoming Bobcats in Pack [number]. Akela, as you can see, they do know the Cub Scout Handshake. (All Webelos boys shake hands with the new Bobcats and take their seats)

Akela: Boys, you are growing up in a world of your own. It will be different than the world your parents grew up in. But throughout your journey, your parents will help you find the way. In scouting, you will learn about a great number of things, like your American heritage and what to do in an emergency. At every step, your parents will help you with these tasks. And so, we ask them to join us in the cub scout parent's promise:

We, the parents of a cub scout / do promise to assist our son in earning his cub scout badges / and to judge him as the individual he is. / We will be faithful in our attendance at pack meetings / and assist in every possible way as we help our son to do his best.

We are now ready to pin the Bobcat badge on these boys. Only one obstacle remains, and that is the requirement that the badge be pinned on upside down until these new bobcats do their first good turns. Only then can the badge be worn right side up.

Asst. Cubmaster: Congratulations, new Bobcats! Now I would like to present you with your coup stick. This will be our way of monitoring your advancement during your years as a Cub Scout. You will be able to paint it a color chosen by your Den and make markings on it to signify each achievement in Cub Scouts. Please take your coup stick, place it on the Bobcat rung of the Advancement Ladder, and be seated with your parents.

Akela: This concludes this ceremony. I now return to the forests of Mount Diablo to prepare for spring. In June, I will return to help each boy who remains graduate to the next step in Cub Scouts. Goodnight!

Would the following boys and their parents please come forward! (boys come forward) Boy's you've accomplished the first step in Cub Scouting. In all things there is always a first.. .. the first stone layed in a new building, the first step across a bridge.

THEME MATERIALS

BOBCAT HUNT

Setting: Wilderness of North America

Personnel: Leader dressed as Indiana Jones, Leaders (or Webelos Scouts) dressed as Native Americans

Tip: This program works really well on a campout.

Welcome to the Great Bobcat Hunt. Today we will follow the trail of the North American Bobcat. We will begin our trip by first issuing you some gear. You will first need to make yourself binoculars. (Have the boys make binoculars from toilet paper rolls and tape)

Next you will need to make sure you have a water bottle or canteen. (Issue the boys water bottles or fill up their canteens)

Now we are ready to start. I would like you to meet your guides for the day. (Leaders/boys dressed as Native Americans come out.) I would like you to meet Akela and Baloo. They are from the tribe of We bel os. The name of their tribe means We'll Be Loyal Scouts. Let's all say the name of the tribe together. (Boys say Webelos in unison) Now what does that mean? (Boys shout out the answer) Great! We are off to a wonderful start. Akela and Baloo will now teach you the signs and greetings of their tribe. (the natives teach the boys the Cub Scout sign, salute and handshake)

Now that you have learned how to greet other members of the Webelos trip when you meet them. Let's get started. The first thing we will need to do is cross the swamp. (place fake crocodiles/alligators made from cardboard or any other source and some snakes around the area you are calling the swamp. You will play the Skis game for crossing the river. )

Phew! ! !! I didn't think we were going to make it past the crocodiles. Did you see all those snakes? Now we need to head toward base camp. In the military when you are going on a long march you sing to help pass the time. So let's learn a song to sing on our journey. (Teach the boys a song of your choice)

This is our base camp. Let's take a little break and have some fun. (play an active game of your choice with the boys.)

Ok, the break is over. We need to get started tracking the Bobcat. (Take the boys on a short hike and look for the wooden placards or you can make Bobcat tracks with the same words on the back of them hidden along your hike) You will need to look for signs or tracks of the Bobcat. When you find one, let me know. (After you have found all of the placards/tracks have the boys play the mix-up game.- Try to sort the words into the promise, law and motto.) Good hunting guys. Let's head back to camp. (Return the boys to camp)

(Bob looks like a brilliant idea just came to him and starts counting the boys there) Heeeyyyy. . . .. I don't suppose you guys have time to help me make the shields???? It would be a big help.

Tour Guide: What do you say guys? After all Scouts "Help other people" ? (Boys answer yes.

Have a cardboard shield already cut out for the boys to decorate. Don't forget

to put a handle on the back for them to hold the shield. Pipecleaners and duct tape work well.)

Bob: This is important don't forget to put the motto on the back of the shield. "Do Your Best" Knights would often write or draw things on the back of their shield to help inspire them in battle. (Boys finish shields) I don't suppose you guys would be willing to fill in as the Knights as well for the dress rehearsal? (Boys say yes. Leader dressed as the King comes out and invests them in the Order of the Bobcat.)

King: I am King Michael. I am pleased that you have agreed to join me in my quest.

Please join me in taking the sacred oath. (Lead the boys in the Cub Scout promise.) The boys all join in taking the oath! Cub Scout Promise)

Tour Guide: Great job everybody. Now let's move onto the next set. This will be the set of Major Payne. They will be shooting the scene today where Major Payne meets the new recruits. Would any of you like to be in this movie? (Boys say yes. Leader appears in military uniform and blows whistle. All statements are made in a short abrupt manner. Imagine yourself as a drill sergeant. If you have time watch the movie Major Payne and imitate the lead character)

Major Payne: You recruits are now part of the Cub Scout pack. There are certain things each Cub Scout must learn. The Cub Scout Follows Akela. Akela is your leader, your parents, teachers and other persons in a leadership position. The Cub Scout helps the Pack go. This means you will do your fair share. You will attend den and pack meetings. You will work on your achievements and electives and above all Do Your Best. The Pack will help the Cub Scout Grow. This means your leaders will help you to learn new things and grow into respectable young men. The Cub Scout gives goodwill. You will be cheerful and friendly toward others, always making them feel welcome. Now that you have learned the Law of the Pack, it is time for you to learn how to give a proper salute. (Demonstrate the Salute) This salute is only to be given when you are in your field uniform or your activity uniform. If you are in civilian clothing, you do not give this salute. You will place your hand over your heart. Will everyone please demonstrate a proper salute. (The boys give the Cub Scout salute) That was a decent attempt. Now let's get those muscles to work. Everyone please move through the obstacle course. (Have the boys run through an obstacle course and meet the Tour Guide at the other end.)

Tour Guide: That looked like some hard work I bet you guys are really tired. Well your in luck we are now going to the recording studio where they make the soundtracks for all ofthe movies and T.V. shows. Today is special because they are going to be recording a brand new song along with some other things. I can't wait. This is the sound director David.

David: Ok. Guys today we are going to be recording a song for the movie "Follow Me

Boys-Cub Scout Style" The song we are going to learn today is _

(song of your choice) Your tour guide will now pass out a copy of the words to the song. (Teach the boys the song.) Ok. Now I will need you to help me out with one more recording, the laugh track When I raise my hand you laugh as hard as you can. As I lower it you get quieter and as I raise it you get louder. Everybody got it? Ok let's give it a shot. (Lead them through the laugh track This is a good opportunity to really give the boys a hard time.) You guys are great. I may be calling on you in the future. ( A nice touch to this scene is to have a tape recorder and play back the recording for the boys.)

Tour Guide: Are you sure you guys aren't professionals? Well let' s head over to the set of that amazing new show .... Cub Talk where we will get to be the first audience. Everybody take a seat.

Bob White: (Walks out on stage like Letterman) Hi. How is everybody doing tonight? My name is Bob White and I am your host. First I would like to welcome everybody to our first show. I understand we have some special guests in the audience tonight. I would like to give a special welcome to the members of Pack __ . Today we will be meeting the Chief Akela of the Webelos tribe. (Chief AkelaThe Cubmaster dressed in Native clothing comes out and waves to the audience.)

Chief Akela: Hello Bob. It is great to be here.

Bob White: I understand your tribe has a unique way of getting everyone's attention.

Chief Akela: Yes, we raise our hand like this (demonstrate the Cub Scout sign) and then everyone else raises their hand the same way and comes to attention.

Bob White: Does the sign have any special meaning?

Chief Akela: Yes, the fingers represent the ears of a wolf that are ready to listen.

Bob White: That is very exciting. Do you have any other special traditions?

Chief Akela: Yes we greet each other with a special handshake. Here let me show you. (Demonstrates the Cub Scout Handshake)

Bob White: That is a pretty cool handshake. Hey everybody try the handshake with the person sitting around you. (Give the boys time to try out the handshake.) One more question, Does the name of your tribe Webelos mean anything special?

Chief Akela: It certainly does. It means We'll be loyal scouts.

Bob White: Well folks that is all the time we have today. Join us next week at the same time and place where Phil Smithjoin us to talk about the Whittlin' Chip.

Tour Guide: Well that was pretty interesting, but now let's head over to the set of Den Feud.

This is a new game show starting this fall. You will be divided into two teams. Our host will explain the details.

Bruce: Hello everyone, my name is Bruce Henley and it is time for DEN FEUD. The first thing we are going to do is a race. My assistants will help you get started. (Have the boys play the skis game.) Next we will have a series of questions. When your team has the right answer ring the bell. You will get one point for a correct answer. If you answer wrong and the other team answers correctly they will get two points. (Ask questions related to the Bobcat and/or Cub Scout

program in general.Make sure each team has some type of noise maker.) And the Winner

is Den with points. Let's give them a big round of applause.

Tour Guide: Well that completes our tour for today. Please be sure and use these tickets to get into the Academy Awards program tonight. (Give them each the pocket reference card)

ADVANCEMENT CEREMONY SHOULD BE DONE IN THE FORMAT OF THE ACADEMY AWARDS. A Picture of a sample trophy easily made ahead of time is included. You can attach the Bobcat badge to the trophy. Be silly with the awards. The trophy is made with a piece of wood, a soda can, a small plastic figurine, glitter and gold paint. Paint everything gold, attach the soda can to the block of wood and then decorate with glitter.

C. L A.

(CUBS IN ACTION)

INTRO:

You have been chosen for a very special mission. You will be seeking a prize that has been sought by every Cub Scout. We have the highest hope that YOU will be able to catch the elusive Bobcat. We have brought in the best and the brightest senior agents to aid you in your mission. (Gesture towards the Staff designated as Cub Scouts)

In your folders you will find the tools necessary to complete your training. At this time, please take out your J.D. badges and place them on you. If you will look on the back of the badge you will find tools to help you through your training.

As you will learn the Bobcat's pack is a tightly knit brotherhood and has even been known to break out into song. It will be necessary for you to be able to sing (no matter how good or bad you are) and join in on the fun. To help you get started we will now learn two songs popular among the Bobcats:

Cub Scout Law

(Tune: Are You Sleeping)

Follow Akela, Follow Akela

Help the pack go, Help the pack go The pack will help you to grow The pack will help you to grow Give goodwill, give goodwill

Cub Scout Promise

(Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

I promise to do my best each and every day

Duty to God and My Country That's the Cub Scout way

I'll help other people

In each and every way

And obey the Law of the pack That's the Cub Scout way

Your team will proceed to your next phase of training. When you hear the whistle, please move to the station. When you have completed your training, please return to the debriefing area.

ASSIGNMENT-INFILTRATION

Your first assignment is to infiltrate the Bobcat's pack. You must learn the Packs' sign, salute and handshake and their meanings. Mastering these items will help you gain access to all of the pack's activities. Agent Akela will handle this part of your training. (In the actual bash this would be Cub Scouts from the pack, i.e. Webelos, bears etc. who are able to help the new boys)

1. Normally at this juncture everyone would make a neckerchief slide with the scout sign on the front of it. For time's sake I have made sample slides for each of you.

2. Demonstrate the salute and explain that is a sign of respect.

The proper times to use the salute and when not to use the salute. (i.e. out of uniform)

3. Demonstrate the Cub Scout handshake and everyone will practice shaking each other's hand.

4. Demonstrate the Cub Scout sign and explain its meaning.

Now you are ready to be tested on your knowledge: Playa game of Akela says. (Throw in silly stuff and the sign, salute and handshake)

ASSIGNMENT- SECRET CODES

Your next assignment will test your thinking ability. You will have to break the Bobcat's secret code. Inside your portfolio are the materials to create a secret decoding device. Please assemble your device and try to decipher the secret message that was intercepted by our communications experts. (SHEETS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THEIR FOLDERS) The Code is 8.

ASSIGNMENT-TEAMWORK

PART-ONE

Members of the Bobcat are known to be able to bond and work well together. We will now test your ability to-cooperate. Divide into teams of three. Play the skis game. Have the Scouts demonstrate this game. (Two boards three ropes on each board. They line up on the boards and try to move them together across the room.)

PART-TWO

The leaders of the Bobcat's pack have known to be very sneaky. In an attempt to test your abilities, you will now be tested on your knowledge of the pack's motto, law and promise. Be sure to use all of your resources for this drill.

ASSIGNMENT- PASSPORT

Make a Bobcat picture frame. In order to expedite this activity most of the work has been done for the participants. At the event for the pack it might be a nice touch to have a digital camera and a printer to print out the photographs.

ADVANCEMENT CEREMONY

Cubmaster: I am glad to see that all of you have survived the training I understand that congratulations are in order as each of your teams were able to capture the elusive Bobcat. I would now like to induct each of you into the C.I.A. Will all trainees please rise, give the Cub Scout sign and join me in the Cub Scout Promise.

Boys, you are growing up in a world of your own. It will be different than the world your parents grew up in. But throughout your journey, your parents will help you find the way. In scouting, you will learn about a great number of things, like your American heritage and what to do in an emergency. At every step, your parents will help you with these tasks. And so, we ask them to join us in the cub scout parent's promise:

As a parent of a Cub Scout, I will do my best

To help my boy

Live up to the Cub Scout Promise And obey the Law of the Pack.

I will work with my boy

On his achievements and projects.

I will attend the pack meetings And help as needed

To make the pack go.

We are now ready to pin the Bobcat badge on these boys. Only one obstacle remains, and that is the requirement that the badge be pinned on upside down until these new bobcats do their first good turns. Only then can the badge be worn right side up. (The Cubmaster then presents the badges to the parents and gives the boy the Cub Scout handshake.)
