Color-coordinated CandyStylish Scouters and parents—I don’t count myself among their number—find all sort of neat ways to enhance Eagle courts of honor. One fun idea is to serve patriotically colored red, white, and blue M&Ms at a court of honor reception. The problem is that these colors are typically only available around the Fourth of July. You could buy them ahead, of course, but who knows how long they’ll sit in your freezer until your...[More]

The Scout Law in ScriptureAn important part of every Eagle court of honor is what I call the Scouting segment (having failed to come up with a catchier name). This is a ceremony, reading, or presentation that comes soon after the opening and that addresses the ideals and meaning of Scouting.Perhaps the most popular Scouting segment is the Scout Law candle ceremony, where Scouts light candles representing the 12 points of the Scout Law as...[More]

A Cool Eagle Scout VideoWe live in a video age, but many courts of honor are a lot more audio in nature. In fact, oftentimes guests could close their eyes through most of a ceremony and not miss much—although the snoring might be a little disruptive!One way to make your courts of honor a little more interesting and visually appealing is to purchase a copy of Eagle Scout David Baird’s very cool “Eagle Story” video....[More]

Sending a MessageAt many courts of honor, you’ll find a guest register where guests can record their names. These registers are nice, but a reader named Shellie Tucker came up with an even better idea, one that encouraged people to leave not just their names but also a personal message.She bought a small (4" x 6") scrapbook made of heavy card stock at a craft store, along with some fancy pens. She set these items...[More]

That's the Way the Cookie CrumblesOne of my earliest holiday memories is of my mother’s sugar cookies, cut to resemble Christmas trees, candy canes, and Santa Clauses and decorated with red and green sugar. While other treats probably tasted better, nothing else seemed as Christmassy to me.The reason I bring this up—other than the fact that Christmas is barely five months away!—is that BSA’s Supply Group offers Scouting cookie cutters: a set that includes a...[More]

Roll-a-away camp cot reviewThis wide cot is perfect for people who prefer a little extra space. They are easy to set-up and tear down, sturdy and cool in the heat. For people with joint problems in the hip or back the Roll-a-away cot is the most comfortable setup. With the addition of a pad, this is very comfortable. The mesh type material will breathe well in summer. With an old pair of pliers, assemble with...[More]

George Washington's Scout LawGeorge Washington might be called America's first Boy Scout. Although the famous incident about chopping down the cherry tree ("I cannot tell a lie") is apocryphal, it has endured because it accurately represents the kind of man Washington was.If you'd like to give your next court of honor a patriotic flavor, consider including this version of the Scout Law that includes commentary by Washington. (It comes from Boy Scouts Year Book, a...[More]

Grand Canyon NPThe mighty Grand Canyon – nature’s beauty- formed by the mood swings of the meandering Colorado River. It is quite humbling to see the cliffs and how Mother Nature has carved out such beautiful structures on the surface of bare rocks.“Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings.”...[More]
