Boy Scouts A Boy Scout Court of Honor is typically a big deal because it's a time to recognize all the work each Scout and the Troop has done over the past few months, including merit badges, rank advancement, and trips--like camping or hikes--all in front of the Scout's families. Plus, there's usually a meal or snack.
Unfortunately, a COH can easily become an overwhelming planning task, lose focus, run too long, and otherwise become less fun. I've participated in a number of Court of Honor's during my Scouting career and would like to think I have some good ideas about how to run them.
What follows is a rough outline of the process I like to follow to put one together. Planning Of course, the planning part is always the most work! The key is sharing responsibilities. Having a snack or meal at the Court of Honor is a good way to increase attendance and give everybody some opportunity to talk before all the awards are presented.
Approach the Committee Chairmain to task a Committee Member s to coordinate the food stuff. Make sure to have drinks, napkins and utensils, too!
Be sure to invite everyone. Obviously, the Scouts and parents, but also be sure to invite your Charter Representative.
Past Scoutmasters always like to be invited, too. Plan an opening, closing and entertainment. I like to assign one patrol the responsibility of coming up with an opening, another patrol the closing, and the remaining patrols entertainment.
The opening ceremony should be special; something more than what goes on at an ordinary Troop meeting. This can be as simple as the Scouts walking in from the back with the flags, to something more elaborate like an actual flag-raising ceremony complete with a bugler in the background which went over very well, by the way.
For the flag raising we built a flagpole. The pulley was screwed into the end of the dowel, which fit into our normal flag stands. The Outdoor Code would also be a good thing to include.
There should be someone to lead everybody through this--probably the Senior Patrol Leader--but the Patrol that plans this should choose: Make sure they invite everyone to stand for the Pledge, and thank everyone for coming.
The closing ceremony is done much the same as the opening. If you're doing a flag raising at the opening, lowering the flag at the closing would make the most sense. An easy option is something like Scout Vespers. Again, the planning Patrol gets to choose, including who leads it. Silently each Scout should ask, "Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright? Can I guiltless sleep tonight? Have I done and have I dared, Everything to be Prepared? It gives everyone a way to be involved and helps to keep the focus on the idea that this is a Scout event and a big deal, not just some dinner.
The patrol responsible will probably immediately come up with two ideas:Organise and perform in a mime, skit or play with other members of your Pack. Create a painting, drawing or three dimensional piece and have it ready to display.
