Summertime Pack Award

Cub Scouting is best delivered as a year round program.  The Summertime Pack Award is designed to encourage a Pack to be active when school is out for the summer, by doing at least one activity per month in June, July, and August.  The youth and adult members of a Cub Scout Pack are eligible to earn the recognition by participating in a Pack activity each month during this period.

The completed application is submitted to the Council Service Center for processing – ideally at the end of August.  Certificates and ribbons will be available at the next Cub Scout roundtable after submission.  Individual awards may be purchased when the application is turned in.
