Allegiance To The Outdoors
SETTING: After presenting flags and Pledge of Allegiance, Den lines up across front of room.
NARRATIVE: We are coming up on the time of the year when we start using the outdoors more and more whether we are hiking the trails of America or just going to the park. Each of us as Cub Scouts owe an allegiance to the outdoors just as we do our flag. Each Cub Scout should know and understand the outdoor code.
As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my outdoor habits, I will keep my trash and garbage out of America's waters, fields, woods and roadways.
Be careful with fire: I will build my fire in a safe place and be sure it is out before I leave.
Be considerate of the outdoors: I will remember that the use of the outdoors is a privilege I can lose by abuse.
And be conservation minded: I will learn to practice good conservation of soil, waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, and wildlife and I will urge others to do the same.
