Awards - Hiking/Activities

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have information on trails or other activites in the New York/Connecticut area? Do these trails/activities offer awards (patches/medals)? Any help would be appreciated.

Concerning awards, within boy scouts the best source of information is the council High Adventure Team. You need to start with your own council HAT team. They may be able to inform you about awards available from other councils.

High Adventure Teams usually operate at the council level. You said you called your district office. Did you try the council office?

Sorry for the confusion. The district and council offices are one and the same. When I asked, they asked me to send them whatever I find. I am a 25+ year veteran of BSA, but am new to the current council. I have never experienced the lack of information, mis-information, and breach of trust at the DE level as I am currently seeing. It also appears the Cub Pack is in turmoil (bad leadership resulting in boys dropping out), which is why I am doing everthing I can to help our Den. But, I keep running into roadblocks when seeking information. Any thoughts on any activities (with rewards) that will help keep the boys interested in the program?

There is no rule preventing you from coming up with your own awards if you think that will help with motivation.
