Hiking Activities If you are out with a goal oriented group and you want them to take some time to explore, consider adding one or more additional hiking activities.
May Cub Scout Theme – Destination Parks (Health and Fitness) BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. One of the Cub Scout themes for the May core value of Health and Fitness is a Destination Parks theme.
Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit Nylon pouch, multi-tool, miniature light, hand saw, signaling mirror, survival blanket, fire starter, waterproof matches, cotton ball fire tinder, snare wire, emergency cord, waxed thread, fishing kit, sewing kit, pocket survival guide, and rescue instructions.
Walking Stick (From 41 to 58 inches for correct sizing) This walking stick comes in 4 different lengths so you can get the correct size for your height, resulting in more comfortable hiking.
60 Hikes Within 60 Miles (Multiple Locations Available) This is great for Scout units, because you can pick up the book and know you are going to be able to find something within a reasonable driving distance.
June Cub Scout Theme - Head West Young Man (Perseverance) Word on the street is that BSA will release a June Cub Scout theme called "Head West Young Man" for the June core value of Perseverance.
Troop Running a Pack Meeting Tonight, our Boy Scout Troop is running the Pack meeting for our Cub Scouts. They are going to divide into dens and each den will have several Boy Scouts doing skill instruction with them. They are working on things like knots and outdoor skills which relate to the advancement for each den. While they are doing that, the Scoutmaster (my husband), is going to talk to the Pack parents about the Boy Scout program.
The Twelve Days of Camping Song Heres another silly song for you. This works well at Christmas (because of the tune) or at camp (because of the theme).
Outdoor Essentials for Cub Scouts Even as winter approaches and it gets to cold for the Cub Scouts to get out tent camping, we can still get them outdoors on a day hike. Make sure your Cub Scouts know the 10 Outdoor Essentials.
Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award If your Cub Scouts attended day camp or resident camp over the summer, you might want to encourage them to work on their Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award.
Hiking Belt Loop for Cub Scouts Hiking is one of the new additions to the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program. I really like this added incentive to get our Cub Scouts outdoors.
Camping Packing List One thing new scouts (and new leaders) often ask the first few times they go camping is "What do I need to bring?" Download a suggested list of personal camping gear.
