June 2009 BSA Theme - A Camping We Will Go
"This month Cub Scouts go camping! Have a backyard campout with your family. Pitch a tent or sleep out under the stars! Conduct a pack campout at a nearby Scout camp, state park, or even the local museum. An outdoor pack meeting might include a nature observation hunt, followed by an evening around the "campfire". Attend your council's Cub Scout or Webelos Scout resident camp as a den or pack or the council's family camp with your whole family. Camping doesn't always mean overnight; day camp is always lots of fun. Get those boys outdoors and let them discover the fun of camping while working on their Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. Whatever you do, do it outside and find out what the outing in Scouting is all about. While out on the trail, you can work on the Map and Compass belt loop and pin or the Astronomy belt loop and pin.
This theme is designed to promote character development by emphasizing these core values:
- Health and Fitness. Stress the importance of being healthy and fit for outdoor adventure.
- Responsibility. Camping helps reinforce the importance of responsibility toward yourself (being prepared), others (buddy system), and the environment (Leave No Trace)." - Program Helps
