Funraising is a common practice with Cub Scouts. It is aided in reducing costs of events such as camping, materials for items such as birdhouse builds, and also teaches our cubs how to public speak and share what they do in Cub Scouts.
This occurs From the start of September to the 2nd week of October. Our aim is to fundraise to particpate in activities as well as attain supplies for tasks.
Activities we participate in:
Nature Centers - some have a fee to enter animal areas
Supplies we use/need continually:
Badges for completed requirements
