Backpacking Meals: Trail Pizza
blog 25 Aug 2014 | 10:58 am
Being from Chicago, I take my pizza pretty seriously. So, when I’m out in the backcountry, I don’t want to let my standards fall, but I also don’t want to be cooking with a headlamp trying to make some lengthy, effort-intensive gourmet meal. My solution: Trail Pizza. One of my favorite backpacking meals, trail pizza is super tasty, but also super easy to make. It also allows different group members to pick their own toppings and makes for a great family camping recipe where kids can help build their own pizza. Try it out and you won’t be disappointed— trail tested,...
Getting Parents to Sign Boys Up for Cub Scouting
Blog 25 Aug 2014 | 9:49 am
Samantha sent in this question:
We are looking for ways to attract mothers to sign their children up for the Cub Scouts. I was wondering if you can give me any tips or what can attract mothers to have their sons join cub scouts.

Our district professionals go to local schools and do great presentations directly to the boys. These are well prepared and humourous. Many of the boys go home and insist that their parents go...

Merit badge requirements completed but no blue card — now what?
Blog 25 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
Four years ago, Boy Scout Aaron, now 15, began working on Theater merit badge.
He acted in school plays and worked backstage at school musicals.
There’s just one problem: nobody told his Scoutmaster.
That means Aaron didn’t have a blue card. Or a merit badge counselor, for that matter.
So are the curtains closed on Theater merit badge for Aaron? Or can he still count some of that experience toward the badge requirements?
The basic answer is this: It’s up to the merit badge counselor, not the Scoutmaster, to determine whether the requirement was fulfilled. The Scout will have the burden of providing evidence that he indeed did...

Saintspeak is a tongue-in-cheek book written by Orson Scott Card that pokes fun (from within) at Mormon cultural norms and attitudes. Published in 1981 and styled as a dicitonary, he skewers programs, practices and traditions alike, though it lacks a few contemporary entries. Here, I'm posting a few that pertain to Youth ministry (this is a coed list):Agency: Within your stewardship, complete independence to do what you’re told.Beehives: Twelve- and thirteen-year-old girls in Mutual. Ask your local Beehive teacher whether the beehive was chosen as their symbol because of their cooperation, their buzz, or their sting.Calling: Mormons are content with...
