National Summertime Award

Boys who participate in three summertime pack events
may receive the National Summertime Award pin.
Created:1964
Level:Cub Scouts

The purpose of the National Summertime 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. If a pack is in a "year-round school" (or is part of a home-school association), the pack could earn the Summertime Pack Award by having a special pack activity during those breaks.

Boys who participate in three summertime pack events (one each in June, July, and August) are eligible to receive the National Summertime Award pin.

The pin is worn on the right pocket flap of the Cub Scout Uniform, pinned onto the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award, if present. Multiple pins may be displayed for each year the award is earned.
