Some of the purposes of Cub Scouting developed through this month’s theme are:
Preparation for Boy Scouting. Outdoor activities for Cub Scouts help prepare them for the outdoor activities of Boy Scouting.
Spiritual Growth. Cub Scouts are encouraged to explore their spiritual beliefs as they continue advancing up the Cub Scout trail.
The core value highlighted this month is:
Resourcefulness. Boys learn to be resourceful as they learn how they would survive in the wild.
Cooperation. Great tasks require cooperation. Boys will learn to cooperate as they get to know living things.
