Summer of Adventure

posted May 12, 2016, 11:26 PM by Paul Wiggins   [ updated Jul 8, 2016, 7:34 AM ]
Scouting adventure doesn't end when school's out!  Come join the pack for these summer events.

Scouts can log their participation in these events in ScoutBook toward earning the National Summertime Pack Award pin.  They can earn it each summer by participating in an event in June, July, and August.  Since our summer break start in May, your scout can count the Fishing Derby on May 28 in place of one of the other months as necessary.

Attending the Mountain View Day Camp in June or resident camp at Camp Nicol sometime this summer will put your scout on the path to earning the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award.  In addition to attending day camp or resident camp, scouts need to complete a particular outdoor adventure with their den, as well as participating in some other outdoor experiences.

Make sure to log your hiking in ScoutBook, also.  The pack gives patches to scouts who reach 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, ... miles, and we're now exporting the information from ScoutBook.  It will be fun to see how many miles some of our scouts rack up over their active summer months.
