There are numerous activities you can do with your scouts over the summer months to keep your scout on track with his rank requirements and electives. You just have to know where to look.
Visit a museum, park, ball game, aquarium, or historical site. Go to the pool, the beach, the mountains, or just away for the weekend. Take your scout to the local library to pick out some fun books to read, or visit a farm and pick fresh strawberries, corn, or tomatoes for dinner. Catch a summer matinee at the local movie theatre. It doesn't have to be elaborate and costly; be creative, your kids will just love doing stuff with you.
Don't forget Cub Scout Leaders, the National Summertime Pack Award can be earned by doing three pack activities when school is out for the summer—one activity each in June,July, and August. Packs that qualify get a colorful streamer for their packflag. Dens that have at least half of their members at the three summer pack events can earn a den ribbon. Pack members who take part in all three events are eligible for the National Summertime Pack Award pin, to wear on the right pocket flap of their uniform.
