Balance candle board, white, blue and gold candles, Bobcat badges.
Cubmaster, den chief or assistant Cubmaster
are happy tonight to welcome (number) new Bobcats and their families
into Pack No._______.
I call your names, please come forward and stand next to our awards
now (Cubs' names), I would like for you to tell me the Cub Scout motto,
and the Law of the Pack. On the table you see our balance board with
three candles, the white candle that is burning so brightly, stands for
the Spirit of Scouting. This candle brightens all of our meetings. The
blue candle, (den chief lights candle) stands for the Cub Scout, and the
yellow candle, is for the parents. Parents, without our help, our son's
candle will fade and finally go out (den chief blows out candle and then
relights it). If we work with our sons and guide than along Akelas
trail, their light will always shine brightly.
& Mrs._________ , would you please repeat after me the parents
as parents will do our best...to aid and assist our son in his Cub Scout
activities...we will encourage him with leniency...and realizing that
the Cub Scout program...is one of equal participation for boys and
parents.. we will assist as we are able...in serving as leaders,
advisers or workers."
& Mrs._________ , since you have helped you son to achieve his first
stop along Akelas trail, I ask you to pin this badge, upside down, on
his left shirt pocket.
You must do a good deed in order to turn your Bobcat badge
right-side-up, and tell your den leader about your deed at
your next meeting.
to all of you., and welcome to Pack No._____
No._______ , how about a special cheer for our new Bobcat and his
