Respect is showingregard for the worth of someone or something.]What does it mean to show respect for the outdoors or for the earth?[Hopefully the Cub Scouts will be able to apply their previous ideas of respect topeople to respect for the outdoors and to the resources that we have on theearth. Have them come up with ideas of what they can do to show more respectfor the outdoors. This discussion can be referred to at the end of the month whenyou discuss Leave No Trace. Cub Scouts can help protect the environment byremembering that while they are there, they are visitors. When we visit theoutdoors, take special care of the area. Leave everything just as you find it. ]Please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Scout Oath.

Allegiance to the Outdoors ClosingCubmaster:We are coming up on the time of the year when we use theoutdoors more. We are hiking the trails or just going to thepark.

Secrets in Nature ClosingCubmaster:No matter where you live, there is a world ofundiscovered secrets of nature waiting to be explored.Farmers and naturalists are students of nature. Anaturalist stands like Columbus on the prow of his ship,with a vast continent before him. The main difference isthat the naturalist’s world can be at his feet. It is as nearas your back yard, a nearby park, the woods, or thefields of a local farm. All kinds of insects, birds, plants, and other forms of lifeinhabit these lands.

The Four Cs DiscussionMaterials:4 C words (Clean, Careful, Considerate, Conservation-minded) printed on paperInstructions:1. Have Cub Scouts sit in a circle on the floor.2. Tell the boys that today we’re going to work on memorizing the OUTDOORcode. It is important that they remember that it is called the OUTDOOR code.3. First off, run through the 4 C words in the Outdoor Code – clean, careful,considerate and conservation-minded. Show the small signs if needed. Say itagain. Have them join you and have everyone say it together – many times.“Clean, careful, considerate, conservation-minded.” Have them say it as a groupseveral times without using the cards.4. Since we are learning the Outdoor Code it’s really easy to add after the wordclean, “in my outdoor manners” and after considerate we add, “in the outdoors.”Have the group say, the 4 C words, but add “in my outdoor manners” after cleanand “in the outdoors” after considerate.5. Now, go around the circle and have each boy say just the four words. If theyaren’t perfect, that’s OK, we’re going to keep trying.6. Now we’ll add the first part of the Outdoor Code. It’s kind of like the ScoutOath. It goes, “As an American, I will do my best to ” Let’s say those 4 C wordstogether again. Then say them with the beginning added and with the “in myoutdoor manners” added.7. How fast can we say those 4 words? “Clean, careful, considerate, conservationminded.” Say them again.8. In the outdoors, what is something that we need to be careful with? Fire! So weadd “with fire” after the word careful. Say it now together “As an American, I will do my best to Be clean in my outdoor manners.Be careful with fire.Be considerate in my outdoor manners andBe conservation-minded.”Say the Outdoor Code several times as a group and then ask “Who wants to saythe Outdoor Code?” Go around the circle and give them each a chance to say it bythemselves.
