Cub Scout Campfire Program

April's Cub Scout character connection was faith.  We took the boys and their families outside for a campfire program.  We sang camp songs, enjoyed a great skit by the Bears, then settled down and retired a flag. Most of the kids and many of the adults hadn't been a part of a ceremony to retire a flag.  It's something every Cub Scout should experience.  I never really thought about how closely related patriotism is to faith.

I definitely want to incorporate a camp fire program into a Pack Meeting every year!  I was nervous about the children roasting marshmallows, especially the younger siblings.  So we made Oven S mores ahead of time and served them at the end of the meeting.
