We used the Science Program for one months Pack meeting when we had
a Cub Scout Science fair. This was very successful all the boys who
partcipated got a belt loop and many of them got their pin as
We also tried it combining the Art and Music programs. This was not
quite as succesful - we had an art show and music Pack meeting.
The Pack Meeting was lots of fun and participents got the
belt loop but very few boys got a pin (although one did
continue and get a Letter).
These programs can be very useful and help those boys who
are not particularly fond of sports (eg my son who is
proud of being a "nerd").
Give them a try I am sure you will find it is a good experience.
