Cub Scouts - Scout Oath and Law Helps and Printables

Part of the Cub Scout program update involves dropping the Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack and adopting the Scout Oath and Scout Law instead.  I personally think this is a great idea because it better prepares the Cub Scouts to become Boy Scouts down the road.




I thought a summary sheet would be helpful for leaders, Cub Scouts and parents.  So I made one.



Since I am a teacher by nature, I always try to think of little tricks to remember things.  When I participated in Board of Review nights with Boy Scouts, I noticed that the boys looked panicked when I asked them to recite the Scout Oath or Scout Law.  It wasn't because they didn't have them memorized; it was because they forgot what they are called.  So I came up with this little trick to help them.



The Scout Law and Scout Oath are on the back of the handbooks but I also wanted to make these as a resource.

(Note: You can save the PDF file on a memory stick and take it to a copy store and they can print it out on 11 x 17 cardstock for you.  This is a great option for den or pack meetings to help the boys during the transition)

Click HERE for the Scout Law document which has a generic font as a PowerPoint file. 
Please download or make a copy before editing it.

Please use Google Drive to download these documents if you'd like to edit, print or repost them. I have received lots of emails asking for access to edit these documents. I posted PowerPoint/Slide versions that can be edited after you make a copy in Google Drive or download them to your computer. Unfortunately I won't be able to respond to individual requests to email copies to people because it is taking way too much time on a daily basis.  Thanks!

For some reason, I cannot gain access to the 11x17 Scout Law file. It says I must request access, so I have. Hopefully you will see it and allow me? Thanks! These are fantastic resources.

Thanks for letting me know Liz. I fixed the access issue and made it public for the 11x17 Scout Law file. :)

May I share this on our Pack's blog? I want to encourage all of our new scouts' parents to come to your site and print this out if they need it. We are encouraging them all to know their Bobcat requirements by our October pack meeting but I wouldn't post it without your permission and linking back to you.

Sure thing! Let me know if you want me to email any docs to you to post on your blog directly.
