District and Council Activities

Your local council or district office may schedule activities in which all the packs in your area are invited to participate. Some examples are Cub Scout day camps, Scoutoramas, Scouting shows, conservation projects, outdoor Cub Scout field days, Cub Scout circuses, district summer softball leagues, etc.

District or Council Scout Shows

A Scout Show, Scout Expo, or Scout-O-Rama is a gala event held in a council or district to demonstrate to the general public the ways in which Scouting serves youth in the community. Participating in a Scouting show also helps families see that they are part of a total Scouting program. Cub Scout pack participation helps acquaint Cub Scout families with Scout troops, Venturing crews, Sea Scout ship, and Explorer posts.

Cub Scout participation in the show should demonstrate the ideals of Cub Scouting. The Scouts may participate in a grand entrance, demonstrations of Cub Scout outdoor activities, acts related to Cub Scout adventures, or other Cub Scout activities such as derbies, physical fitness, etc.

District or Council Cub Scout Activities

Many districts and councils plan and conduct special events for Cub Scouts.  Most of these events are council organized overnighters.  These events are conducted by the local council as they provide the program for the event and may provide additional support such as meals and lodging.
