Most of us like getting a break from the busy school year and Cub Scouts are no exception. Our Pack doesn’t have regular meetings during the summer so we can allow everyone a chance to enjoy their break and take family vacations or just relax. We do however keep in touch and have some e vents to help keep people together and traditionally our summer activities are both well attended and fun for all the boys and their families.
This year we have an event each month (June, July and August) and look forward to seeing as many people as we can get to each event. Our Rain gutter Regatta and a trip to do some Cave Camping are both on the list and I will be in touch with everyone as events come around.
As part of our Summertime Pack activities, we have the ability to earn some special awards. Some of these we have earned in the past and some we have not pursued.
• The pack can earn an award for having an event in each month during the summer. We schedule three events and as long as we get 50% participation at each event we can earn another ribbon for our Pack Flag.
• Dens with at least 50% participation at events can also earn a ribbon for their den flags. (We will talk more about making and using Den Flags in this coming year)
• Individuals who attend all three events can also earn a pin that can be worn on the uniform for the Summertime Pack Award.
I look forward to our summertime activities as a way to have fun, maintain interest and grow our group. If you have any suggestions or ideas I am happy to hear them and look into them for our Pack.
