Outdoor Fun and Fitness Ceremony

About this Outdoor Fun and Fitness Ceremony

This fitness ceremony is based on a poem found in the the Backyard Fun Cub Scout theme. It focuses on several different ways that children can stay fit while playing outside.

I changed some of the words to make it easier for the younger Cub Scouts to say.

The pack meeting plan uses it as a closing ceremony, but it could be inserted anywhere in a Cub Scout meeting as a little break.

Outdoor Fun and Fitness Ceremony

I like playing tag.
It is fun to run and play.
Tag is a great way to exercise,
and have fun along the way.

I like playing ball.
It is fun to throw and run.
Playing catch is a great way to get fit;
it really is such fun.

I like playing frisbee.
It is fun to play with a friend.
This is a type of exercise
that I never want to end.

I like swinging on a swing.
I feel like I can touch a cloud.
I enjoy this type of movement,
and my mom is really proud.

I like relay races.
I run them with my den.
I get strong at Cub Scouts
from now until I am 10.

Playing in the backyard
by myself or with a friend
is a great way to get in shape
and make it easier for me to bend.

Being fit and healthy
is an important thing to me.
If it helps to play outside,
then I say that’s the place to be.

The end.
