District Scouting Shows
Within the local district office there are many activities in which all the packs in the area are invited to participate. Some examples are Cub Scout day camps, Scoutoramas, Scouting shows, conservation projects, outdoor Cub Scout field days, Cub Scout circuses, district summer softball leagues, etc.
A Scouting show is a gala event held in a district to demonstrate to the general public the ways in which Scouting serves youth in the community. Participating in a Scout show also helps boys and their families see that they are part of a total Scouting program. Cub Scout pack participation helps acquaint Cub Scout families with Boy Scouting and Venturing. ROLLA Scouting Show is held the last Thursday in the month of August; so look for dates and times.
Cub Scout participation in the demonstrates the ideals of Cub Scouting. The Scouts may participate in a grand entrance of boys and parents by packs, demonstrations of Cub Scout outdoor activities, acts related to Cub Scout themes or Webelos activity badges, or other Cub Scout activities such as derbies, physical fitness, etc.
