The BSA Family Award program includes a series of activities designed
to help strengthen all families--whether two-parent, single-parent, or
nontraditional. This program was designed to help families accomplish
worthy goals while building and strengthening relationships among family
members. All family members are encouraged to participate and may earn
the award. Click here for details.
Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award
Tiger Cubs, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts have the
opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. This award recognizes the Scout for
taking part in outdoor recreation and conservation projects. In many
cases, you can earn this award while doing other Scouting activities. Boys may earn
the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are
completed each year. Click here for the requirements.
Religious Emblems Program
A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his
religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of
custom and religion.
To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups
have developed the following religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts
of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be
worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer
the programs. Check with your local council service center or contact
the religious organization directly to obtain the curriculum booklets.

Cub Scout World Conservation Award
The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Cub
Scouts to "think globally" and "act locally" to preserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely
related through natural resources and that we are interdependent with our world environment. Click here for details.
Emergency Preparedness BSA
"Emergency preparedness" means being ready for all kinds of emergencies.
It means you're ready and able to help in times of trouble to save
lives and property and to help a community—or even a nation—get back to
normal after a disaster happens. To encourage Scouts of all ages to be
prepared for emergencies, the BSA has approved an Emergency Preparedness
Award program for members of all ages. Click here for details.
Cub Scout STEM/Nova Awards
The Boy Scouts of America developed the Nova Awards program to excite
and expand a sense of wonder in our Scouts. By working with an adult
counselor or mentor, the various modules allow them to explore the basic
principles of STEM and discover how fun and fascinating STEM can be.
The Supernova awards are offered for those who enjoy a super challenge.
