Rumor control: No, Cub Scout uniforms aren’t changing
Blog     24 Oct 2014 | 9:37 pm
By now you’ve heard about the big, exciting changes coming to Cub Scouting in 2015. (Read all about them here.) But one change you may have heard about just isn’t true. In fact, we need your help quashing this rumor wherever it rears its head: roundtables, Scout meetings or online. There seems to be a rumor out there that all Cub Scouts will begin wearing the tan Boy Scout uniform shirt. I have confirmed today that this is absolutely false. Tigers through Bears will continue to wear their blue uniform shirt. Webelos Scouts will continue to have the choice of wearing either the blue shirt or the tan uniform shirt with blue...

Whittling Chip Card Corners
Blog     24 Oct 2014 | 12:31 pm
Ben sent in this question: We recently had an issue with some scouts on a camp out where a knife was used improperly. There was an incident and although no one was injured I realized there don’t appear to be clear guidelines on what is a “minor” vs. “major” infraction when it comes to revoking/cutting the Whittling Chip card. I have seen some references indicate that a major infraction is if someone is injured. What about if a blade is brandished but no one is injured? What if the blade is not brandished, but the knife is removed from the pocket?...

It's essential to reduce your impact when nature calls, so bringing a trowel with you in the backcountry is a must.

SansBug Photo Contest
Blog     24 Oct 2014 | 10:39 am
One of these tents is not like the other - can you tell the main difference?Canvas tents are an old stand-by of Scout Camps across the country. I've stayed in them at Philmont basecamp on both of my treks there. In a dry, arid environment, they work well, but there is absolutely no protection from insects while trying to sleep.Notice the netting on the cots in the lower picture? Frequent readers may recall my post about SansBug shelters this past spring. It is a very cool, very fun, protection from all form of bug, insect, creepy critter, and crawly rodent...
