Cub Scout Closing Ceremonies


Spirit of Cub Scouting

Narrator: Throughout our meeting this evening this candle, which represents the spirit of Cub Scouting, has burned. It represents all of our Cub Scouts, from the youngest to the oldest, no matter what similarities or differences they may have. They all wear the uniform of the Cub Scout. Look steadily at this light for a moment. (Pause) Now close your eyes. The image remains with you. Open your eyes. Now we blow out the light. As the image of the light remained in our mindís eyes, so will the spirit stay with us. This evening of fun and fellowship will not soon be forgotten nor will the important decisions be overlooked in the lives of boys.
