Autism and Scouting, One Boy’s Personal Journey
Blog     5 May 2015 | 9:05 am
This video speaks for itself, I want to note, however how the attitude and will of the adults involved made this a positive story. Listen to Chase describe how he felt and how he perceived things. Listen to Chase’s mom describe how she felt as a parent. It’s very difficult to imagine that 11-year-old as a young adult, especially when the going get’s tough, it seems like a loosing battle sometimes. Imagine the difference you can make in a young persons life, and in the life of a family if you care enough to try and understand, to clear a...

This past weekend, Girl Scouts announced an exciting partnership with the National Park Service to launch the “Girl Scout Ranger Program,” a joint venture connecting girls with National Park Service sites throughout the United States, including monuments, seashores, and urban sites. Through this program, girls are invited to play outdoors, learn about national parks and why they're preserved, and develop essential leadership skills.

11 percent of the males in this high school graduating class are Eagle Scouts
Blog     5 May 2015 | 6:00 am
Eagle Scouts will be well represented at this Pittsburgh-area high school graduation next month. Of the 147 seniors graduating from South Fayette High School in McDonald, Pa., 82 are males. Of those 82 males, nine are Eagle Scouts. That’s 11 percent — or nearly double the national percentage of Scouts who become Eagles. Jennifer Fuller, a proud mom of one of the newsworthy nine, shared the tip with me by email this week. “As one would expect of Eagles, each of their stories is noteworthy,” she writes. “But I was hoping that they could be recognized as a group. Their combined hours of community service topples the charts....

Blog     4 May 2015 | 4:02 pm
My weekend started with that. The cat, who apparently loves to launch himself off my foot – and only me – pulled his favorite stunt on Friday morning. I wasn’t feeling much like hiking on Saturday, but could at least wear shoes. So the family and I went to where I call home. Because nothing […] The post I’m Happy When I Go Home appeared first on Trail Cooking....

Eagle Scout organizes relief trip to area destroyed by Nepal earthquake
Blog     4 May 2015 | 2:46 pm
Last week, we shared Eagle Scout climber Matt Moniz’s story with you after he survived a deadly avalanche at Mount Everest base camp as a result of a magnitude-7.8 earthquake in Nepal. Matt was evacuated from Everest’s base camp to Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital. But instead of returning home to the U.S., the 17-year-old has refocused his energy to organize a relief expedition to Laprak, a village in the country’s Manaslu region (shown at right). In this remote area, Matt writes that the situation is “dire, many dead and injured, almost complete destruction of all homes.” He also cites a report of “250 children running out of food...
