August 2009 BSA Theme - Fun in the Sun
"Let's go outside and have fun in the sun. Plan some outdoor activities this month that will encourage dens to meet and make preparations together for your pack event. It's a great time for a pack picnic, with each den planning a game or activity. Have a Cubanapolis derby with dens preparing their vehicle and practicing maneuvers during den meetings. Stress good sportsmanship and team building during the planning stages, as well as during the actual event. Create kites in your dens and have a kite flying derby or a family picnic to show off your creations! This might be a great month to work on the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award or a Cub Scout Sports belt loop or pin.
This theme is designed to promote character development by emphasizing these core values:
- Respect. Boys learn to respect nature as they learn how to take care of it.
- Health and Fitness. Spending time outdoors is important to physical and mental well-being." - Program Helps
