Belt loops have always been the “bling” of Cub Scouting. Boys love these shiny symbols of their accomplishments.
That fundamental part of Cub Scouting remains when the new Cub Scout program debuts on June 1. In fact, it’ll only get better.
Adventure loops will replace belt loops. Boys must earn at least seven adventure loops on their way to each of the first three ranks: Tiger, Wolf and Bear. They must earn at least seven adventure pins on their way to Webelos and Arrow of Light.
But rather than wait until a pack meeting to present the loops and pins boys have earned, Cub Scout leaders should present them as soon after...

“A boy on joining wants to begin Scouting right away” – Robert Baden-Powell
Scouts didn’t sign up to be lined up in chairs listening to somebody talk. There is a time and place for instruction, but what the youth are really longing for is action.

A red carpet, a limousine and people showing up in tuxedos — not exactly typical sights at a Scouting event.
Doing the atypical is exactly why the Foothills District awards banquet is such a success.
