District and Council Activities
Your local council or district
office may schedule activities in which all the packs in your area are
invited to participate. Some examples are Cub Scout day camps, Scoutoramas,
Scouting shows, conservation projects, outdoor Cub Scout field days, Cub
Scout circuses, district summer softball leagues, etc.
District or Council Scouting Shows
A Scouting show is a gala event held in a council or district to
demonstrate to the general public the ways in which Scouting serves youth in
the community. Participating in a Scouting show also helps boys and their families
see that they are part of a total Scouting program. Cub Scout pack participation
helps acquaint Cub Scout families with Boy Scouting and Venturing.
Cub Scout participation in the show should demonstrate the ideals of Cub
Scouting. The Scouts may participate in a grand entrance of boys and parents
by packs, demonstrations of Cub Scout outdoor activities, acts related to Cub
Scout themes or Webelos activity badges, or other Cub Scout activities such as
derbies, physical fitness, etc.
District or Council Tiger Cub Activities
Many districts and councils plan and conduct special "Tiger Cubs only"
activities for their dens. These activities are planned for the age and
experience level of Tiger Cubs, with activities for boys and their adult
partners to do together. Tiger Cubs and their adult partners may also
attend district and council day camps.
Also, to help Tiger Cub dens in their Go See It activities, the council
and/or district activities and civic service committee may have developed
a "Where to Go" booklet for Tiger Cubs. Whether the booklet is bound or
is just a sheet of paper depends on the council and its resources. This
booklet can be a great resource for your Tiger Cub dens and will help them
stay interested and active.
