Brag Vest Segment Patches

Pack 155 proudly displays patches earned by cub scouts on brag vests. While they are not required uniform apparel, many of the boys take great pride in the recognition that the brag vest brings. Our Pack issues each scout a center circle patch for Pack 155. From there, scouts can earn large patches for specific events or segment patches for pack events. The segment patches are purchased by the pack and determined by the Awards Chair.

Sports and Academics Program

Is your son looking for more actvities that he can do to earn recognition through scouting? This website ( has details about the 40 different academic and sports programs that scouts can use to earn belt loops and pins. The belt loop requirements are easier, and the pins go more in depth, but it gives the scouts an opportunity to try out some of their hidden talents and interests

Good Turn for America

Good Turn for America ( is a long term effort by the Boy Scouts of America to encourage and record good turn projects done in our communities. As scouts participate in a Good Turn with the pack, they earn the Good Turn Patch. The first Good Turn they earn completes the circle center patch. For every year after, they receive a Rocker for that year. You can only earn the circle patch once, and the rocker once per year.


  • A scout has to earn the circle patch for one Good Turn before earning the rocker years.
  • The second Good Turn, the scout earns the rocker for the year.
  • In subsequent years, the scout has already earned the circle patch, so one pack Good Turn earns him the rocker for that year.
  • IF THAT SCOUT has already earned the Circle Patch AND the Rocker for the year, we will give out a segment patch for that pack activity.
