Four Directions   Four Directions Ceremony   Scout Ceremony

This Ceremony is meant for Cub Scouts.
4 scouts
Place each scout at a different corner of the meeting place, matching east, west, north, and south.
Cubmaster: O Great Spirit, bring forth the four winds.

East: I am East. From me comes the sun each day, with its light which all living things need. Just as I am the first direction, cub scouting begins with the Tiger.

South: I am South. From me come heat and rains, so all living things might have warmth and water to drink. Just as I am the second direction, cub scouting's second step is the Wolf.

North: I am North. From me come cold and snow, so all living things might experience coolness and the beauty of winter. Just as I am the third direction, cub scouting's third step is Bear.

West: I am West. To me the sun comes at the end of each day, giving the world darkness so all living things might rest. Just as I am the last direction, so Webelos is the last step of cub scouting.

Cubmaster: Brothers East, South, North, and West - will you lead us in the Law of the Pack?

(4 scouts raise the Cub Sign)
East: "The cub scout follows Akela."
South: "The cub scout helps the pack go."
North: "The pack helps the cub scout grow."
West: "The cub scout gives good will."

(The four winds are dismissed by the Cubmaster)
