Advanced Related Activities
Non-Scouting and Scouting families alike are welcome to print and use our Certificate of Achievement to recognize their children for accomplishing any task or Adventure on this site. Parents of registered Cub Scouts can also use this certificate, then send a copy to your unit leader for official advancement.
Note to Parents of Registered Cub Scouts and Cub Scout Leaders, the National Director of Cub Scouting has issued the following statement:
We have approved that all Cub Scouting requirements for all ranks, including Webelos and Arrow of Light may be approved by the parent, legal guardian, or other adult family member. In addition, Cub Scouts may continue to work on their badge of rank and adventures for that rank through June and July. They are not required to, we just want to provide additional time for those who may need it.
1. Do the Activities in the Adventure as outlined on this website. They are actual Cub Scout Adventures for the Advancement program but have been rewritten to be completed without leaving home.
2. Print the Generic Certificate of Achievement, writing in the name of the Adventuer and your Child's name.
3. Proudly display your Child's certificate, or if your child is a Cub Scout, send it to your Unit Leader for Advancement purposes if they have not yet completed said Advancement.
4. In reference to information you do not know, look it up online.

The Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!
The Cub Scout Sign: Hold your right arm up and make a "peace" sign.
The Cub Scout Salute: Use when you are in uniform to salute the American Flag. Make the Cub Scout Sign, make your two fingers touch, and then place the tip of your pointer finger and ring finger to the edge of your right eyebrow.
The Cub Handshake: Let's avoid this one for now and practice our social distancing.
The Scout Oath
On my honor, I will do my best,
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
The Scout Law
A Scout is:
* and Reverent.

Merit Badges and Their Workbooks Conducive to Working on at Home
Complete List of Merit Badges - For Boys & Girls Ages 11 & up
Young people can learn at meaningful level about many topics by working on Merit Badges. Below is a list of Merit Badges that you can work on at home. If you are a Registered Scouts BSA Member, work with your Unit Leadership to identify a registered Merit Badge Counselor so that you can officially earn the Merit Badge for your Scout Advancement. If you are not a registered member, fell free to work on an at home Merit Badge, and have your Parent or Guardian sign off on the Certificate of Achievement when you are done.
Remember: Don’t just complete the workbook…if it says Demonstrate, or Show, you must actually do the task.
