Camping – A lot of advancement requirements are camping related. Scouts who camp more frequently tend to advance more rapidly.
There is also more time to work on general advancement requirements and skills during a campout.
Service Projects – Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do his best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While you’re giving service, you’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for your community.
Fund Raising – Paying your own way is a fundamental principle of the Boy Scouts of America. It is one of the reasons why no solicitations (requests for contributions from individuals or the community) are permitted by units. Young people in Scouting are taught early on that if they want something in life, they need to earn it.
Fundraising helps provide for summer camp, activities, uniform, equipment, and much more.
Outings – Excursions and field trips provide some of the most exciting parts of Scouting. Boy Scouts enjoy many outdoor experiences as they participate in the variety of activities that can be held outside, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation experiences
