National Summertime Award
|National Summertime Award|
Boys who participate in three summertime pack events
may receive the National Summertime Award pin.
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.
Den and Pack ribbons
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.
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 for the den flag or den doodle.
