A Cub Scout can be better at always being prepared as long as he has a back pack to keep his various items of use in, ready for whenever he needs them.

Again with Camelbak® you can rest assured you are getting a superior water bottle ready for most things a Cub Scout can throw at it.
Sure, it’s tough to see them grow up, but earning the right to safely handle a pocket knife is a big moment in a young Cub Scout’s life. Make sure he’s good and ready, and if he is, this Cub Scout™ Pocket Knife makes a fantastic stocking stuffer your Cub Scout is sure to get excited about.
Nothing spells out immediate adventure quite like a new flashlight. With this super grippy, gel-cased LED flashlight, your Cub Scout will know instantly what to do with it. Whether it’s building a fort to light up at night, or taking out the trash after sunset, this flashlight will never be far from his reach. Light up his stocking with the Cub Scout™ LED Gel Flashlight.
You might want something more fancy for the Blue and Gold Banquet, but this yellow Cub Scouts Spork is perfect for campouts, hiking trips, Pack outings, Day Camp, and any other activity where a meal is served. It’s the ideal stocking stuffer, and let’s be honest, it fills a young Cub Scout’s need to have something nifty to keep in his pocket.
Whether it’s a summer outing in the woods, or a backyard campout, this lightweight sleeping bag is perfect for your Cub Scout as he fills his days and nights with experiences only Scouting can offer. From a night at a museum to a massive ballpark sleep in, there’s opportunity galore to use this great bag, but perhaps none more so than seeing him want to sleep in it right at home, proud of being a Cub Scout.
One of the best gifts or stocking stuffers a young Cub Scout could want is his very own wallet. He’ll feel independent and excited for the opportunity to use his wallet during a Scout outing, or a family trip to the store. “This youth sized wallet is sturdy enough to really take a beating” and can be machine washed. Brilliant on all counts!
