Since my last post, Cub Scout Activities: SCOUTStrong PALA & the “Where in the World is my Cub Scout Leader” Game, I decided to work on some rank-specific SCOUTStrong Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) Scavenger Hunts to make our outdoor adventures a little more… adventurous.
As many neighborhoods are posting rainbows, Easter eggs, and inspirational messages for children to find on their family walks, I figured a Scavenger Hunt would be the perfect addition to the already awesome PALA program. Do you need a little something extra for your next walk in the woods? Do you have a Lion preparing to graduate up or a new Scout who would like to earn their Bobcat? I have everybody covered. Each Scavenger Hunt also includes the Leave No Trace Principles for Kids in the footer, just as a reminder that we shouldn’t take home any of the fun things we find.

Learn more about the different SCOUTStrong Awards, including the PALA, at Scouting.org. This award should be submitted to your local Council Scout Service Center, but can also be logged for record-keeping purposes in ScoutBook.
How is your unit earning the SCOUTStrong PALA? Is your leadership team hosting or issuing special challenges? How’s it going?
Wishing all of you good health!
Yours in Scouting,
