Why do Scouts go Camping?
Blog     30 Apr 2015 | 9:05 am
 I was dumbfounded when the parent of a Webelos visiting our troop asked; “What about a Scout who doesn’t really like camping?” How would you answer that question? The best I could come up with was; “I don’t really know what Scouting is if we aren’t camping, I don’t think it’s an option.” I couldn’t really explain why we go camping beyond the typical answers about having fun, teamwork, physical activity, and I realized a lot of activities could accomplish those ends. Why do Scouts go camping?  Is it just to get outdoors? Most importantly, is camping essential to Scouting or is it just an...

Rocks, Rockets, Rhythm? 1958 flier tells of new Exploring program
Blog     30 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
“Like to learn more about rockets? Or look for odd rock formations? Or listen to the newest rhythm platter?” If you said yes to any of those questions — and were a teenager in the 1960s— the Boy Scouts of America had just the thing. In January 1959, the Boy Scouts of America replaced its Explorer program with the Exploring program. This was more than just a suffix change, though. The BSA and the University of Michigan had done extensive research on the needs of boys ages 14 to 16. They found that boys of that age in the 1950s were less interested in advancement and more interested in having...

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter April 28, 2015
Blog     30 Apr 2015 | 12:20 am
Having just come off two weekends of patch trading I'm still buzzing from all the fun. I spent yesterday sorting what I brought home only to found out that I did miss out on a few patches that were issued during the weekend. But since I quit collecting all the new issues a few years back I went to bed last night without a worry. Judging from my own sales and watching Facebook I think there are a fair number of people who have not given up on new issues but instead are determined to collect centennial OA issues. I know...

Mammoth Rides, Eagles and Early spring on the lake
Blog     29 Apr 2015 | 3:35 pm
When we can, we get out for a paddle, hike or other microadventure with kids. This recent trip was to a local lake right after ice-off. Four kids and 3 adults required us to do a bit of MacGyvering, relying on the Outdoor Adventure Mobile’s sibling to cart one of the canoes with us.   Last year the ice didn’t come off the lake until Mid-May, so the gate was still shut in March when we went. We did a bit of trekking to get the canoes to the water but it was well worth it… And before you think I got the ladies...

Boys’ Life Facebook post about 20-person, 10-room tent goes viral
Blog     29 Apr 2015 | 2:36 pm
May 1 update: The post’s reach is now 52.9 million. Whoa! OK, I know “going viral” is one of the most overused social media phrases out there. But I think you’ll agree that its use is warranted this time. On Monday, Boys’ Life posted an image of a 20-person, 10-room tent to its Facebook page. Then something incredible happened. People started sharing the image with their friends. Then those friends shared it with more friends. And so on until, as of this writing, the number of people reached with the post has surpassed 45.8 million — and growing. In other words, this little Facebook post has gotten way bigger than our...

2015 March-April ‘Where Am I?’ winner, location revealed
Blog     29 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
No matter what time you visit, the location of the March-April “Where Am I?” contest is a favorite of many campers. Did you take a crack at guessing its location? If you guessed South Carolina’s Table Rock State Park, you were right. Plenty of Scouting families pitch a tent in this secluded park, where you can hike to the top of Table Rock or opt to camp in the area at lower elevation. So who won? Venturer Brad Stojetz of Charlotte, N.C., was randomly selected as the contest’s lucky winner. He was chosen as number 42 of 68 guesses. As the winner, he will...

Girl Scouts Joins Toyota Financial Services for Financial Literacy Day on the Hill
Blog     29 Apr 2015 | 9:32 am
 April is National Financial Literacy Month across the United States, and to celebrate, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) joined their partners at Toyota Financial Services (TFS) last Friday to exhibit during Financial Literacy Day on Capitol Hill. Sharing a joint booth, GSUSA and TFS demonstrated how the new TFS-sponsored “Driving My Financial Future” program is providing girls in underserved communities with the opportunity to become self-reliant, financially literate, and capable of leveraging their talent, resources, and personal business values to become tomorrow’s leaders. The event, introduced in 2003 by the Council for Economic Education, Junior Achievement, and...
