New den leaders, please sign up at the Sign-up-Genius invite

Please contact your den leader if you have not signed up for this exciting event! Remember, sales earned at the stores count toward your Trails End Prizes!  These prizes are listed on the Face-to-Face Take Order forms that were handed out at the last Pack Meeting.  These sales and the individual sales you make selling to friends, neighbors, relatives and parents co-workers will count towards your Trails End Prize.

As an additional incentive announced at the Pack Meeting, to drive individual Face-to-Face Take Order sales, we've added more prizes to help motivate our boys.

  • Take Order Popcorn sales -  $10 Target Gift Card for every $100 popcorn sold on Face-to-Face forms - sell $500 worth of popcorn, get a $50 gift card!

Also, the Den that sells most on an average per cub basis gets an ice cream party prize! With the Take Order form, you can start selling today. Please take some time to view the training video, so that you can see how easy it is to go out there and get people to support cub scouting!

New Outdoor Ethics Awareness and Action Awards Program

Cub Scouts and leaders interested in learning more about outdoor ethics and Leave No Trace should begin by exploring the Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award.

Guided by the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace, millions of Scouts have enhanced their awareness of the natural world around them, minimizing impact to the land. For Scouts who have a deep interest in the outdoors, nature, and the environment, Scouting’s outdoor ethics will give you an ever-deeper appreciation of the richness of the land and how we fit into it. If you are prepared to venture down the path of really becoming aware of your surroundings, of building the skills that will allow you to leave no trace on the land, then the Outdoor Ethics Awareness and Action Awards are for you.
