Welcome to Summer! In order to earn our Pack Summertime Award, you’ll want to attend at least ONE EVENT EACH MONTH for June, July, and August. We’ve planned two activities each month in order to give you options! Scouts who participate in all three pack events are eligible to receive the National Summertime Pack Award pin, which they can wear on the right pocket flap of their uniform.

Grab your recycling bin and get creative! Build yourself a boat or raft with a SAIL. Need some guidance on building your boat? Check out some of these rules or the post from the last race (with lots of examples)
Scouts should build boats by creating a boat of their own. They may be decorated in any manner they choose! Get creative, but make sure it’s not too heavy!
- The boat must be newly built for the current Cub Scouting year. As much as practical, the boat should be substantially built by the Scout with parental supervision.
- NO motors allowed. Only wind sails will power the boats.
- Additional parts (visual enhancements) such as Lego Man Drivers or Life Saver rings, decals, paint, and glue are permitted.
- The finished boat length must be no longer than 7.5″ and no wider than 5″ (the race lane is 6″ wide)
- The mast may not be higher than 7” from the deck.
- The sail may not be in contact with any part of the boat except the mast.
Two scouts will race against each other at a time. Each boat must start with the back of the boat touching the end of the rain gutter; the scout should hold it there with one hand. When the starter says go, the kids will propel the boats by blowing on the sail with a drinking straw. THE SCOUT MAY NOT ADVANCE THE BOAT WITH HIS HAND or PHYSICAL STRAW AT ANY TIME. If one does so, he/she will be given a warning and the race rerun if that child wins. If a boat gets broken or sinks during a race, the results stand.
LIFE-SIZE ANGRY BIRDS:

Wear your sneakers and bring your kicking feet! We’ll be returning to our attempt to knock down those crazy pigs!!
MORE OPTIONS… BINGO!
There will also be a Summertime BINGO game that you can enter as an option! If you and your family are going to be out of town for some of these events, you can print the BINGO card and return it to a den leader as an independent event!
