Hopefully your Cub Scout Pack will remain active this summer. If your Pack has one activity each month, you might qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award.
The purpose of this award is to introduce Scouts to the life of a great American, James M. Stewart. The Jimmy Stewart Museum is offering this award to a Scout or Scouter who has exemplified the characteristics necessary to live the life of a good citizen.
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.
Nova Awards are the BSA Awards focused on STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Supernova Awards recognize young men and women in Venturing who go further in their STEM explorations.
The Swimming program feature helps Scouts learn how to safely enjoy fun and physical activity in the water. Scouts also need to know how to swim to enjoy other aquatics activities such as boating and paddling.
Gathering activities are just program ideas for the Scouts to do while they are waiting for the meeting to start. These can be games, puzzles, crafts, or anything which only takes a few minutes.
Do you have a gathering activity that you’d like to share? Contact me and I’ll share it here.
