Cyber Chip Award

Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America introduced the Cyber Chip. In developing this exciting new tool, the BSA teamed up with content expert NetSmartzr, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and training expert for many law enforcement agencies.

Awards for Dens and Packs

Just as Cub Scouts can earn individual awards for themselves, they can also work together to earn awards for their whole den or their pack. Getting together to work on these awards is a great way to practice teamwork and to show every Cub Scout how important he is as a member of his den or pack.
