    WARD PRIMARY

    PRESIDENCY

    6.5 The ward Primary presidency, under the direction of a counselor in the bishopric, has responsibility for Scouting for eight-, nine-, ten-, and eleven-year-old boys. A member of the presidency is responsible to see that Scouting is organized appropriately.

    The presidency member should:

    1. Register with Boy Scouts of America, receive BSA training, serve on the appropriate ward Scouting committee, and ensure that Church policies are followed.

    2. Coordinate Scouting with the Faith in God program.

    3. Encourage leaders to attend Scout training.

    PURPOSE OF SCOUTING

    1.1 Priesthood and Primary Scouting can help young men and boys enhance close relationships with their families and the Church while developing strong and desirable traits of character, citizenship, and physical and mental fitness. Under priesthood leadership, Scouting can complement the efforts of Aaronic Priesthood quorums and Primary classes in building testimonies in young men and boys. Scouting under Church sponsorship should become an extension of the home, Primary classes, and Aaronic Priesthood quorums. Scouting functions as part of the Churchs activity program for boys and young men.

    Stake Ward Ward Primary

    3.4 Under the direction of the stake presidency, the stake Primary presidency provides ongoing encouragement, support, and instruction for ward Primary presidencies. They coordinate support for the Scouting programs in each ward and encourage ward Primary Scout leaders to participate in basic and other approved training.

    3.4 The stake Primary presidency may also help ward Primary presidencies understand Church Scouting policies and how the Scouting and Faith in God programs work together.

    STAKE AARONIC

    PRIESTHOOD COMMITTEE

    3.2 The stake presidency may assign high councilors with assignments relating to the Aaronic Priesthood and Primary to meet as an Aaronic Priesthood committee to discuss Scouting-related matters (see Handbook 2, 15.3.2).

    4. Visit Scout meetings and activities.

    5. Help plan day camps .

    *11.5.3, 6.5 The Primary presidency ensures that all boys ages 8 through 11 are registered in the Scout program and that all Scout leaders are registered and receive proper training.

    SCOUT LEADERS

    *11.2.6 If a ward Primary holds Scouting activities for children ages 8 through 11, the activities may be planned and conducted by the teachers of these children or by other leaders the bishopric calls to fulfill these responsibilities (see 11.5.2 and 11.5.3).

    SCOUT COMMITTEES

    4.3 When more than one Scouting committee exists in the ward, members of the Primary presidency should be assigned as follows:

    (1) the member responsible for the eleven-year-old boys serves on the Boy Scout troop committee and (2) the member responsible for eight-, nine-, and ten-year-old Scouting serves on the Cub Scout pack committee.

    FAITH IN GOD

    6.0 In Primary, the Faith in God program should be coordinated with Scouting to lay a foundation that prepares a boy to keep his baptismal covenants, better serve his family, and receive the priesthood. Scouting supports boys and their families by giving them an additional opportunity to put into practice the gospel principles they learn at home and in Primary. Parental involvement and help is a key to success in this program.

    6.5 A member of the ward Primary presidency should coordinate Scouting with the Faith in God program .

    *11.5.3 To maintain a gospel focus in Scout activities, leaders use the Faith in God for Boys guidebook as one of their resources. As boys fulfill requirements in the guide- book, they also qualify for religious awards in Scouting.

    *11.5.1 The Faith in God program helps boys ages 8 through 11 live gospel principles, develop testimonies, and prepare to be righteous Aaronic Priesthood holders.

    The ward Primary president ensures that each boy who reaches age 8 receives a copy of Faith in God for Boys. She helps parents understand that they can use these guidebooks as resources for activities with individual children and with the entire family.

    Handouts (and MORE!) from the Houston Area Little Philmont Cub Scouting Session 2013

  • 1. Citizenship: Contributing service and showing responsibility to local, state, and national communities.

    2. Compassion: Being kind and considerate, and showing concern for the well-being of others.

    3. Cooperation: Being helpful and working together with others toward a common goal.

    4. Courage: Being brave and doing what is right regardless of our fears, the difficulties, or the consequences.

    5. Faith: Having inner strength and confidence based on our trust in God.

    6. Health and Fitness: Being personally committed to keeping our minds andbodies clean and fit.

    CHARACTER DEVELOPMENTSince its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today.Character development should extend into every aspect of a boy's life. Character development should also extend into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders should strive to use Cub Scouting's 12 core values throughout all elements of the program-service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings.

    Cub Scouting's 12 Core Values

    7. Honesty: Telling the truth and being worthy of trust.

    8. Perseverance: Sticking with something and not giving up, even if it is difficult.

    9. Positive Attitude: Being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations.

    10. Resourcefulness: Using human and other resources to their fullest.

    11. Respect: Showing regard for the worth of something or someone.

    12. Responsibility: Fulfilling our duty to God, country, other people, and ourselves.

    12 Core Values and

    The Scout Law

    Boy Scouts learn and strive to live by the Scout Law:

    A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, dean, and reverent.

    Many of the core values of Cub Scouting relate directly to the Scout Law:

    Core Value Scout LawCompassion KindCooperation HelpfulCourage BraveHealth and Fitness CleanHonesty TrustworthyPositive Attitude Cheerful

    Character can be defined as the collection of core values possessed

    by an individual that leads to moral commitment and action.

    Character development should challenge Cub Scouts to experience core values in six

    general areas: God, world, country, community, family, and self.

    Character is "values in action."

    Commit: Character development includes attention to moral motivation. Children must be committed to doing what they know is right. They must be able to understand the perspectives of others, to consider how others feel, and to develop an active moral conscience.

    Why is this core value important? What makes living out this core value different? What will it take to live out this core value?

    Practice: Character development includes the development of moral habits through guided practice. Children need opportunities to practice the social and emotional skills necessary for doing what is right but difficult, and to experience the core values in their lives.

    How can I act according to this core value? How do I live out this core value? How can I practice this value at school, at home, and with my friends?

    To make Character Connections anIntegral part of Cub Scouting, the

    12 core values are being integratedThrough out the boys' handbooks and

    advancement program.

    Program support for character development can be found in Cub Scout Program Helps, in the Cub Scout Leader Book, and at your monthly roundtable meetings.

    Remember: Core values are the basis of good character development. Character must be broadly defined to include thinking, feeling, and behavior. Core values should be promoted throughout all phases of life.

    Commit: Character development includes attention to moral motivation. Children must be committed to doing what they know is right. They must be able to understand the perspectives of others, to consider how others feel, and to develop an active moral conscience.

    opportunities to incorporate character development

    to convince the young Cub Scout that character is important to the individual, to his family, community, country, world, and God
