A Scout Is Helpful
Cub Scouts promise to help other people when
they recite the Cub Scout Promise. One way they can keep their promise
is by participating in den or pack service projects. While a Scout
should do his best to help other people every day, a group service
project is a bigger way to help people. While you are giving service,
you are learning to work together with others to do something that is
good for your community.
projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered
organization. Here are some service activities Cub Scouts can do.
