The Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award recognizes Cub Scouts who have made the most of the outdoor adventures available to them.
The first year the award is earned, the Cub Scout gets a pocket flap to wear on their uniform shirt. Each successive time it is earned, they get a wolf track pin to wear on the pocket flap.
