What's a cub to do over the summer?

Stumble Upon Toolbar
Parents, Cubs, and new Chums.

Even though our Cub pack takes the summer off, there's lots of things a Cub can do over the summer. Even if you just swam up from Beavers, there's a lot of things you can do. And for many of them you're doing just what's required! You just need to keep track of them.

Consider the following badges?
  • Team Player - do play baseball, soccer, or any other team sport?
  • Swimmers - are you taking Aqua Quest 7?
  • Watercraft - do you go to a canoeing camp or boat at a cottage?
  • Fishing - do you fish your Dad or Mom?
  • Gardener - do you have a green thumb?
  • Artist or Readers - what do you do on a rainy day?
  • Collector - do you have an organized collection of anything?
  • Musician - do play a musical instrument? Do you go to music camp?
  • Home Repair - do you help Mom or Dad fix things around the house?
  • Pet Care - do you help take care of the family pet?
  • Language Strip - can you carry on a conversation in a a second language?
There's over 70 badges and awards you can earn. I bet you're doing some of these with your family over the summer. Why not come prepared in the fall to earn a bunch of badges!

To really know what you can do and the exact requirements, you really need a Cub Book. If you don't have one you can get one at a Scout Shop. There's one in North York (here) and Brampton (here).

Have a safe and fun summer everyone!
