Cub Recognition Opportunties
Academics and Sports Program
The Academics and Sports program gives Cub Scouts extra recognition activities to earn. In Academics subjects and Sports, Cub Scouts learn new skills, become better scholars, learn sportsmanship, and have fun. You can get to know a sport or an academic subject that’s new to you –maybe astronomy, chess, computers, science; golf, hiking, tennis, or skateboarding to name a few in the program.
Belt loops and pins are a great way to help fulfill the aims of Scouting—build character, develop citizenship, and encourage mental and physical fitness. Through a variety of subjects, you can stretch your mind and abilities by exploring the wonders of science, learning about the world, and expanding skills in new areas.
This is a chance to try something new, do your best, and earn recognition all at the same time.
Besides the belt loops and pins, there are other kinds of recognitions for the Academics and Sports program. These include pocket cards, medals, trophies, and a program emblem.
For all of your recognition needs visit your Local council service center, Scout Shop or online at www.scoutstuff.org .
The Boy Scouts of America has a new tool designed to welcome your comments and suggestions on how to improve the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide. Please e-mail your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
