Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos Scouts have the opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. Cub Scoutsmay earn the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are completed each year. The first time the award is earned, the Cub Scout will receive the pocket flap award (shown above), which is to be worn on the right pocket flap of the uniform shirt.
