Outdoor Activity Award

Tiger Cubs, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts have the opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. Boys may earn the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are completed each year. The first time the award is earned, the boy will receive the pocket flap award, which is to be worn on the right pocket flap of the uniform shirt. Each successive time the award is earned, a wolf track pin may be added to the flap. Leaders should encourage boys to build on skills and experiences from previous years when working on the award for a successive year. Click here for more information about this award


World Conservation Award

This Award is meant for Cub Scouts. Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not. The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Cub Scouts to 'think globally' and 'act locally' to preserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely related through natural resources and that we are interdependent with our world environment. The Cub Scout version of the World Conservation Award can be earned by Wolf, Bear, or Webelos Scouts, but not by Tigers. This is considered a 'temporary patch' and should be displayed centered on the right pocket. It can be sewn on or displayed in a plastic patch holder hung from the pocket button.This award can be earned only once while you are in Cub Scouting (i.e. as either a Wolf, Bear, or Webelos Scout).For more information about World Conservation Award click here


Leave No Trace Award

This Award is meant for Cub Scouts. Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not. Leave No Trace is a plan that helps people to be more concerned about their environment and to help them protect it for future generations. Leave No Trace applies in a backyard or local park (frontcountry) as much as it does in the wilderness (backcountry). We should practice Leave No Trace in our attitude and actions wherever we go. Understanding nature strengthens our respect toward the environment. For more information about Leave No Trace Award click here



Religious Emblems

A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the following religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. Check with your local council service center or contact the religious organization directly to obtain the curriculum booklets.For more information about Religious Emblems Programs click here



Emergency Preparedness Award

When a member has fulfilled the requirements, a completed application is submitted to the council. Upon approval, an Emergency Preparedness pin is awarded. The pin may be worn on civilian clothing or on the uniform, centered on the left pocket flap. The award may be earned more than once; for instance, as a young person advances through the ranks and is capable of more complex preparedness activities, but only one pin may be worn.

Whittling Chip Award

This Award is meant for Webelos scouts. Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not. Bear scouts and Webelos scouts may earn the privilege of carrying a pocketknife to Cub Scout functions. The objective of this award is to make scouts aware that: 'A Cub Scout knife is an important tool. You can do many things with its blades. The cutting blade is the one you will use most of the time. With it you can make shavings and chips and carve all kinds of things. The scout must sign and carry the Whittling Chip card whenever he has his pocketknife. It is expected that an adult leader should ask a scout to see his card, and if it can not be produced, to confiscate his knife until the event is over or return it to his parent. The Official BSA Whittling Chip for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts is a Wallet Card (No. 34223A) and/or Patch (08598). The patch is considered a 'temporary' patch and should only be displayed on the uniform centered on the right pocket in a temporary patch holder hung from the pocket button. It does not get permanently sewn on the uniform. For more information about Whittling Chip Awared click here
