“The emergencies of today’s world demand more than ever that our young people and adults be trained as individuals and as units to meet emergency situations. This program fosters skills in our youth and adult members so that they can participate effectively in this crucial service to their families, communities, and nation.”
The BSA Ready & Prepared Award was developed to encourage and reward Boy Scout troops, Varsity Scout teams, and Venturing crews that incorporate safe practices while enjoying challenging activities.
A Scout is Reverent … Scouts are encouraged to learn more about their Duty to God by earning the Religious Emblem of their faith. These programs are offered by many churches — check with your pastor.
Upon completion of the Religious Emblem curriculum, a Scout is presented his medal in a church service, and may wear the purple religious knot on his uniform.
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. The patch is worn on the right pocket flap of the Cub Scout or Webelos Scout uniform shirt.
