How do I do that?

Our pack is meeting during the summer and we would like to earn the Summertime Pack Award.  What do we need to do?

The purpose of the National Summertime Pack Award is to encourage packs to provide a year-round program by continuing to meet during the time periods when school is out of session.

A pack can qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award certificate and streamer by planning and conducting three pack activities-one each in June, July, and August.  Individual scouts that participate in all three pack events can receive the National Summertime Pack Award pin. 

Here is a link to the Summertime Pack Award Application - Here
Submit the application to the Council as soon as possible after your August activity.

Please share your summer Scout Camp Adventures with us!

Boy Scout summer camp is full of adventure.  Whether sailing, canoeing, swimming, scaling the climbing wall, or riding a mountain bike course your Scouters will have such a great time this summer at camp.  After you get home and catch up on your rest contact Chris Peterson and let him know where you went and what you did.  Also, send us any photos you would like to post on the District Website to

Wood Badge
Wood Badge is Scouting's premier training course. Baden-Powell designed it so that Scouters could learn, in as practical a way possible, the skills and methods of Scouting. It is first and foremost, learning by doing.
