Rebuilding A Cub Scout Pack
Blog     15 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
As the Cub Scout program year came to a close last May our cubmaster stepped down from his position. His youngest son has graduated out of the pack. That left the pack without a cubmaster. It also left the pack without an active pack committee. Everyone who was registered as a committee member no longer had sons as members of the pack. The pack had no leadership in place for this fall, and no one had done anything to try to take care of that problem over the summer. I was a member of the pack committee, but it was pretty much...

You can teach a Scout to fish — with proper training
Blog     15 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
If your idea of teaching Scouts how to fish is telling them to “watch what I do,” you probably could use some training. And I’ve got just the thing: the Certified Angling Instructor Training course, taught Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, 2014, at (where else?) Florida Sea Base. Conference attendees will earn the BSA’s Certified Angling Instructor recognition, meaning they’re certified to run fishing programs at BSA summer camps and instruct the Fishing and Fly-Fishing merit badges. Think of it as the fishing equivalent of firearm or climbing instructor training. Of course, if you’re a registered merit badge counselor, you may teach Fishing and Fly-Fishing merit...

B.P.’s Blog – The Patrol Spirit
Blog     14 Sep 2014 | 9:05 am
During his lifetime Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the worldwide Scouting movement, wrote many books and articles directed to Scouters. Each Sunday I’ll publish a selection from his writings in the hope that you’ll draw inspiration and understanding from his timeless ideas. THE more I see of Troops which are successful, the more I realise the value of the system of making the Patrol the responsible unit of the Troop, and the treatment of the Patrol Leader as a responsible being, just as if he were grown up. As a further step in this direction, and one which I think will be helpful...

The Eight Piece Starter Village
Blog     14 Sep 2014 | 7:47 am
I remember when the Boy Scout stores began selling the Scouting Village pieces a couple years ago. I decided to start collecting them a little too late and missed out on getting the lighted Trading Post building. I still do not have one. When this year’s village pieces became available at our local Scout Shop I bought all three immediately. I did not want to make the same mistake a second time. I recently noticed that in addition to this year’s collection pieces, has an eight piece starter set available to purchase. The set includes all the pieces from 2012...
