Scout Bucks are earned for participating in various activities and achievements. At the end of the year, the points are added up. At the Family Camp and Court of Honor in June, Scouts get to choose items from a table in order of descending “bucks”. There is always plenty of great gear—tents, back-packs, stoves, camp chairs, etc.
