Summer Fun

Planning for the Summer

Day Camp plays a significant role in helping the boys advance toward rank. May of the Achievements, Service Projects, and fun activities are held outdoors when the weather is nice. Summer is also a time when the boys are on vacation and visiting family and friends. Ideally, the Pack and Dens can continue to meet but realistically it is a challenge to meet as separate dens and achievements completed during the summer meetings need to be covered again in September.

The plan is to hold three summertime Pack Meetings that are fun events for the boys and their families. Parents are provided with information in summertime packets (Traveler, Outdoor Scouting, Nature, and Conservation) to assist them in completing achievements and elective requirements over the summer. Special Den Meetings can also be planned to cover Whittling for Bears or hiking for Webelos. Flexibility is key. 

Summertime Rank Activities

Fun activities are planned for the summer. Schedule Day Camp early and put it on the Ward calendar by January 1. (In our Stake during the last three weeks in June, Girl’s Camp, Cub Scout Day Camp, and Boy Scout Camp are planned one week after another with Eleven Year Old Scouts at the same time as Cub Scout Day Camp.) Review the Cub Scouts’ summer calendars and plan a program based on the boy’s needs.

If is recommended that Leave No Trace be reviewed prior to attending day camp then used on all outdoor activities.


Especially for Parents

The Home Activities (Wolf, Bear, and Webelos) and Summer Packets (Nature, Scout Craft, and Travel) are for parents and family. They are designed to help parents determine what they can do that will help their Cub Scouts adavance.

4th Article of Faith: We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Song: page 124)

10th Article of Faith: We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory. (Song: page 128)

13th Article of Faith: We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. (Song: page 132)
