Todays post comes to us thanks to the great folks at the Scout-L mailing list. Bob Carlson started it off with this post:This article was FRONT PAGE on the St. Louis newspaper this morning, forwarded from our Special Needs Scouts Coordinator. It's the can do, rather than the can't do that counts.http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/troop-offers-haven-for-scouts-who-won-t-give-up/article_2d646403-e9ea-54d3-9325-346708adad73.html.<http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/troop-offers-haven-for-scouts-who-won-t-give-up/article_2d646403-e9ea-54d3-9325-346708adad73.html Barry Runnels has this to sayThat would be nice, but our troop had several special needs scouts and the challenge to give them...[More]

The Advancement Team (professional) and National Advancement Committee (volunteer) will be doing updates to the education materials going forward, including the approved national advancement trainers, Advancement News articles, the advancement webinars and many other resources.For those who have concerns about merit badges, go see the changes to section 7 - quite a few changes that will address the most egregious issues. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33088.pdf I found this to be an interesting rant that goes hand in hand...[More]

Last week in the mail, I received a nice surprise: a postcard from three Scouts in Milford, Pa., who’d used my book, The Eagle Court of Honor Book, to plan their court of honor. You can see the front of the card at the right.That card made me think of all the people an Eagle Scout might want to thank after his court of honor: the emcee, other presenters, the people who planned the reception,...[More]

I recently came across this cool marketing video from BSA. It talks about how sports are great, but parents shouldn't overlook the enriching life-long benefits resulting from being a Scout. Check it out, I bet it could help with your recruiting efforts. ...[More]

The National Scout Jamboree (Boy Scouts of America) is a gathering, or a jamboree of thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America, usually held every four years and organized by the national council of the Boy Scouts of America. The jamboree is operated more like a world scout jamboree with sub camps that promoted maximum interaction.The New River Gorge is famous for its awesome mountain biking trails. The 2013 National Scout Jamboree will...[More]

The highlight of many courts of honor is the reception. That’s not (necessarily) a criticism of the ceremony. It’s just an acknowledgement that many people enjoy socializing and reuniting with old friends while they munch on sinfully delicious desserts.Those desserts typically include a simple sheet cake, but simple is definitely optional these days. Thanks in part to TV shows like “Cake Boss,” more and more families are creating fun and elaborate cakes that will leave...[More]

It is your furry friend Fuzzy here. Scott asked me to share my favourite salmon recipes with you. Of course I can't tell you all my secrets, but I will share this one with you. As it is summer it means BBQ time and also burgers. Now what is nicer than a nice salmon burger with lime mayonaise? Nothing right. Although Scout disagrees and says a nice cup of coco. Anyway it made me hungry,...[More]

I am sure many of have had experiences with Summer Camp staff signing off advancement requirements without fully meeting everything they are suppose to. I know this is especially true with trail to first class, but also to a lesser degree with many merit badges. Of course how bad and wide spread the problem is depends on the council, camp, and year.(below written by Bruce McCrea Scout-L)Boy Scout summer camps often assign their most inexperienced...[More]

A friend of mine is a church music director, and so he attends a lot of weddings. Whenever someone asks what he thought of a particular wedding, he says, “It was beautiful. I cried.” A stock response is often appropriate since weddings can take on a sameness that hides the personality of the happy couple. Unless you know the bride and groom well, you can go home knowing little more about them than you did...[More]

Ted MclaughlinOk, here's a topic that hopefully everyone on this list can relate to.I took our camp's overnight canoe trip out on Wednesday. As we were about to put in one of the campers handed out his sunscreen and just said everyone could use it as he had plenty of extras. When it came to me I looked at it and thought I'd give it a try. It was the spray on type, (sorry I...[More]
