National Summertime Award

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 for several weeks or months.


A pack can qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award by planning and conducting THREE pack activities – one each in June, July, and August. This award can be an incentive for greater attendance at your summer pack activities. Qualifying packs receive a colorful streamer for their Pack flag.


Dens with an average attendance of at least half their members at the three summer pack events will be eligible for a colorful den participation ribbon.


Individual scouts that participate in all three pack events can receive the National Summertime Pack Award pin. There is a different color pin for each Cub Scout rank so earning the pin each year has more incentive.

A scout that earns the Summertime Pack Award pin should display it pinned on the right pocket flap. Multiple pins may be displayed from each year it is earned.  If the scout has also earned the Outdoor Activity Award, it should be sewn on the right pocket flap and then the Summertime pin pinned above the pocket/patch. If you think you’ve earned this badge, let your Den Leader know!
