Belt Loops

Academics & Sports Loops and Pins

All Cub Scouts can participate in the Academics and Sports Program and earn a belt loop and/or pin for each activity.

Activities can be done individually, in the Den, or as a Pack. For example, a Scout participating on school teams or other organized teams may use those activities to fulfill the requirements of this scouting program.

About the "Loop and Pin" Program

This program is one method of addressing the third aim of Scouting: the development of physical, mental and emotional fitness by focusing on...

    1. the body (well-tuned and healthy)

    2. the mind (able to think and solve problems)

    3. the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect)

You will notice that many of the activities in this program can give you great ideas for a family outing on the weekend.
