Varsity Letter –

The Varsity Scout letter V-emblem is awarded to team members who participate high-adventure or sports program features and are preceded by training or practice sessions. Activities are planned by the youth high-adventure/sports program manager; participation may also result in the team member receiving a Varsity Scout activity pin for the V-emblem. Varsity Scout letter bar pins are awarded for subsequently completed high-adventure or sports program features. (2000 Varsity Scout Guidebook (34827A))

Varsity Scout Letter Bar –
A Varsity Scout letter bar is pinned to the Varsity Scout letter and represents each additional letter earned youth team member. The youth requirements are the same as the Varsity Scout letter.
