Baloo's Bugle


April 2004 Cub Scout Roundtable Issue

Volume 10, Issue 9
May 2004 Theme

Theme: My Home State
Webelos: Handyman & Outdoorsman
  Tiger Cub:



I don’t have one badge to tell you about this month – I have a bunch.  It seems to me there are badges available in every state to encourage you to learn about your state or a certain part of your state.

In Texas there is the Texas Badge.  Go to
http://www.pack129.org/cubs/texasbadge.shtml to learn about it.


In New Jersey the NJ State Aquarium has a Scout Patch that Scouts (Cub, Boy and Girl) can earn.  We also have the Cape May Historic Trail, The Jockey Hollow Trail, Palisades Historic Trail and more.  Our council has a conservation award just for Cubs.

I am sure if you look, you will find an award your Scouts could earn.  And they would have fun doing it while learning about your state.

Maybe it is not a Scout award.  Delaware has a state parks award for hiking/walking in all their state parks.  This month get out there and find an award – Scouting, government or privately sponsored that your Cubs can earn while learning about your state.
