Growing Carrots (or Cub Scouts) Ceremony
Heart of America Council
Equipment: A carrot seed and a carrot with top
Cubmaster: This little carrot seed doesn't look like much,
does it? It's tiny and fragile. But if we plant it in good soil,
and if we make sure that it gets plenty of sunlight, air and
water, it will grow up to be a big, healthy, delicious carrot
like this one.
Cub Scouts are like carrots. They need certain things, too,
like good food, rest and exercise. But Cub Scouts need
something more than that. If they are going to be the kind
of men we all admire, they have to have healthy minds and
spirits, as well as healthy bodies.
In Cub Scouting, and later on in Scouting, boys can
develop that extra quality of mind and spirit. They do it by
following the Cub Scout Promise and later, the Scout Oath.
Will all of you join me now in the Cub Scout Promise?
(After repeating the Promise, ask a Webelos Den to repeat
the Scout Oath.)
Then say "The Promise and the Scout Oath are guides for
growing minds. Let's all pledge to use them, just as we use
food, water and exercise to help our bodies grow".
