2016 Summer Passport Program
Looking for a great activity for you and your Scout to do this summer? Consider the Summer Passport Program. It is a fun, easy program to keep your Scouts active over the summer.
The Summer Passport program was designed to give your Cub Scouts and their families the opportunity to participate in exciting family activities that will also count towards advancements in the Cub Scouting program! Within the passport Scouts and their families will find four different themes. Each theme was created to give each Scout a better understanding of himself and his surroundings. We are very aware that the current economy may create challenges for some of your Scouting families. With that in mind, we have worked hard to provide a program that may be accomplished with little to no cost.
There are three different tiers to the program and a different patch for each level. To achieve the “Awesome Cub Summer Award,” Cub Scouts must complete 16 activities. If a Cub completes 20 activities he will earn the “Sensational Summer Award” and a Cub who completes the entire passport he earns a special “Outrageous Cub Summer Award!” For those Scouts who completed the Passport last summer, don’t forget that you can earn the fourth patch in the series by participating in 2016! It is encouraged that Scouts tape, color, draw, or stamp something from the activity in the box provided.
Some packs choose to work on this as a pack, while others will provide the opportunities to their families to complete on their own. In either case the last page with the appropriate signatures must be submitted to the Pennsylvania Dutch Council, BSA, 630 Janet Avenue, Suite B-114, Lancaster, PA 17601 by September 9th, 2016.
