Our boys had a blast with our Pack trip to the Bowling Alley in March 2013. Not only did they enjoy bowling with their friends, but they also received a special tour "behind the lanes" to see the machinery and how it all works. Each boy also earned a Bowling Belt Loop through the Cub Scouts Academics and Sports Program.
In Academics subjects and Sports, Cub Scouts learn new skills, become better scholars, learn sportsmanship, and have fun. You can get to know a sport or an academic subject that's new to you --maybe astronomy, chess, computers, science; golf, hiking, tennis, or skateboarding to name a few in the program.
Belt loops and pins are a great way to help fulfill the aims of Scouting—build character, develop citizenship, and encourage mental and physical fitness. Through a variety of subjects, you can stretch your mind and abilities by exploring the wonders of science, learning about the world, and expanding skills in new areas.
This is a chance to try something new, do your best, and earn recognition all at the same time!
