GAMSOCS is an acronym used by Leaders as a reference point for an interactive and engaging program for Beavers and Cubs. Using GAMSOCS can make running a meeting easier, just pick a meeting theme and find activities that fit the theme! It is important to remember that youth will get tired of the same meeting format from week to week, using GAMSOCS as a guide work with your leadership team, parents and youth to create a great program!

Elements of GAMSOCS

In Scouting the Principles, Mission and Goals are achieved through using a program of understanding, supportive fun, and activities built around seven program elements:
Games
Acting
Music
Spiritual Fellowship
Outdoors
Crafts
Storytelling

Leaders can provide a balanced program by covering all (or most) of the elements as frequently as possible. More information on section specific program elements can be found in the section Leader Handbooks.
