Cub Scouts can learn which constellations and stars light up our sky. Visit a planetarium or star gaze in a remote area. Don’t forget that the stars in the sky are not the only “stars” that shine. This is a great time for our Cub Scouts to shine by giving service, singing, performing in a skit, or any activity that exemplifies the purposes of Cub Scouting. 

It takes courage to explore a new frontier, to cast aside the comfort of the life we know to go forth and explore our universe. Our Cub Scouts show similar courage in exploring the options and challenges of their advancement in Scouting, which we know will help them grow up strong and courageous as they lead our complicated world and learn more about our universe. Top it off with a space derby. 

Tigers can work on the Sky Is the Limit adventure, Wolves who participate in the space derby can work on the Air of the Wolf adventures, Webelos Scouts can work on the Adventures in Science adventure.

The volunteer committee is working on updating these resources with the most recent advancement changes, including the addition of girls and Lions. If you find any errors, suggestions for changes, improvements, or additional ideas, let us know.
