Cubmaster Minute

Baden-Powell on Health & Fitness

Baden-Powell thought it important to help boys become strong and fit young men of good character. He once said, “A boy is not a sitting-down animal.” And he also felt that games should be “Fun with a Purpose.” Many of the games he introduced were physically very active, but he also felt “It is important to arrange games and competition so that all Scouts of the troop take part.” So as we include fitness activities in our program, let’s remember to help every boy “Do His Best” and give everyone a chance to shine!

Q: WiFi or other internet access and if there were projectors or chalk/dry erase boards in the classrooms.
A: Yes there are computers in the classrooms with internet access as well as projectors and white boards. I'd like to keep the scouts off the computers as much as possible. If they have material for a power point etc, please bring it on a CD or thumb drive.

If you have any questions, please contact us at your convenience.
