A year-round program provides opportunities and variety for Cub Scouts. The BSA has awards for packs, dens, and individual Cub Scouts that can help to motivate Scouts and families to participate and keep summertime boredom from settling in. A pack can earn the National Summertime Pack Award by doing three pack activities when school is out for the summer—one activity each in June, July, and August...

Circle Ten Council and NeTseO Trails Council have merged in order to strengthen Scouting across Northeast Texas and Southeast Oklahoma. Scouts in both councils wear the same uniform, follow the same advancement program, and subscribe to the same Oath and Law. Day-to-day operations in a unit will not be affected.
