Just because school classrooms go dark in the summer doesn’t mean Cub Scouting has to.
Extend the fun of Cub Scouting into the year’s hottest season by earning the National Summertime Pack Award.
Why you should earn this award
- Summer is the best time to enjoy the great outdoors.
- Kids often have more free time — and fewer scheduled activities — in the summer.
- Packs that offer a year-round program see higher retention numbers.
Who Can Earn This Award?
This is an individual recognition for Scouts.
The pack can qualify for the certificate and streamer by planning and conducting three pack activities—one each in June, July, and August, or during other school vacations if your pack is in a year-round school.
Dens with an average attendance of at least half their members at the three summer pack events are eligible for a colorful den participation ribbon.
Scouts who participate in all three pack events are eligible to receive the National Summertime Pack Award pin, which they can wear on the right pocket flap of their uniform.
How To Get the Award
Return completed form to council office; some councils provide recognition at no cost, while others charge a nominal fee for items.
