In a time when trust is at an all-time low, I’m thankful for Scouting
Blog 2 Dec 2013 | 11:00 am
These days it’s hard to trust the driver in the next lane, the teenager swiping your credit card at the drive-thru or the stranger reading your Facebook and Twitter posts. So I’m grateful there’s at least one group of people you still can trust: Scouts.

Information from New Scout Moms (or Dads)
Blog 2 Dec 2013 | 5:00 am
Reader Robin sent in this request:
I am working on a project to help get our new moms more involved. I would like to hear from new moms or even those who have been in scouting for a while (and wish they had this information) to see what information these moms (and dads) would like to know that no one has told them and not sure how to find out.
One of our parents once said that sometimes Scouting has a pretty large learning curve. There is lingo new parents might not understand, an unfamiliar program structure, and different rules about advancement....
The moving target of social media
Blog 2 Dec 2013 | 5:00 am

As we prepare for this seasons winter camping schedule the first thing that we need to accomplish is some good training. Our Patrol Leaders Council has come up with a good plan to get the Scouts of the troop trained and ready for the January camp out which will take them up to Mt Hood, Oregon once again.
This year, the schedule will work out real well for us. When January rolls around we will have the solid group that we currently have and a great group of Scouts that are ready to take on leadership roles in the unit. This...
