Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award

Last updated:
Level:Cub Scouts


The Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award may be earned by Tiger Cubs, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. Boys may earn the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are completed each year. The first time the award is earned, the boy will receive the pocket flap award, which is to be worn on the right pocket flap of the uniform shirt. Each successive time the award is earned, a Wolf Track pin may be added to the flap. Leaders should encourage boys to build on skills and experiences from previous years when working on the award for a successive year.

National Summertime Award pins, if earned, are also pinned onto the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award patch.
