Baltimore Area Council – Super Cub Scout Summer Passport

Monday, May 30th, 2011
Here’s a copy of the Super Summer Passport:  2011 Super Cub Summer Passport[1]

Welcome to a great summer adventure of being a Cub Scout parent!  As a Cub Scout, your child will have the opportunity to grow, learn, and have fun doing Cub Scout activities!
The Super Summer Passport program was designed to give you, your Cub Scout, and your family an idea of the Cub Scouting program!  Within this passport, you and your son will find four different themes. Each theme was created to give your son a better understanding of himself and his surroundings. We are very aware that the current economy may create challenges for some households. With that in mind we have worked hard to provide a program that may be accomplished with little to no cost.

To achieve the “Super Cub Scout” award, the Cub Scout must complete 2 activities from each theme and 4 additional activities for a total of 12.  If your Cub completes 16 of the activities he will earn the “Super Duper Cub Scout” Summer Award.  Cub Scouts who complete the entire passport will receive a special award.  

Once your son has completed his activities, please fill out the last page, tear it off, and send it to:



Baltimore Area Council
701 Wyman Park Drive
 Baltimore, MD 21211
 Attn: Kathy Hull

All forms must be received by September 2, 2011

Summer Fun Coupon

Just because school is out doesn’t mean the Cub Scout program comes to an end!  We have programs for Scouts and families that run all summer long.

Feel free to come to all of the Summertime Pack Activities, some of them, or none of them.  The choice is yours.  You can be as active – or inactive – as you would like during the summer, but summer is an excellent time to relax with the members of your Den and to invite your friends to join Cub Scouts!

Boys who complete three (3) Summertime Pack Activities (including Cub Scout Day Camp and Camp Oest as options) earn the Summertime Pack Award pin at the September Pack Meeting.

As an added incentive, boys who complete six (6) Summertime Pack Activities this summer will earn a special patch, a McDonald’s gift certificate, and special recognition at the September Pack Meeting.

Just have the leader of each Summertime Pack Activity sign and date one space on your Summer Fun Coupon, and turn your completed coupon in to Marc Fischer (6460 Tydings Road, Eldersburg, Maryland 21784 or via email at no later than September 5, 2011.

Summer Fun Coupons will be handed out at the June Pack Meeting, but you can always print one:  Summer Fun Coupon – 05162011 

Have a great summer!

Recruiting Contest

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Do You Know a Future Cub Scout? 

Here’s your chance to invite your friends and neighbors to join our Pack! 

Here’s How It Works

During the recruiting period (from June through December), have your son invite his friends (brothers count too!) to join Pack 883.

  • Make sure your son’s name is listed as the “recruiter” on the new Scout’s application
  • The Cub Scout must join by the December Pack meeting to be included in the contest.

 If your son recruits a new Cub Scout during the time of the contest, he will:

  • Receive a recruiter patch for his uniform
  • Get to throw a pie into the face of the Cubmaster at the December Pack Meeting
  • Have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart in a drawing at each Pack Meeting between September and December
    • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the more Cub Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of winning

At the December meeting, we will draw for the Grand Prize (a $50 Wal Mart gift card)

  • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the more Cub Scouts he recruits, the  greater his odds will be of winning
  • Even if your son wins a $10 Wal-Mart gift certificate at one of the other drawings, he will still be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing
