The ice has come off the lakes and it is Summer, time to go OUTSIDE!!! Last night I went to training for the third year in a row for Cub Scout Day Camp which I am a Den Leader and attend with my son. I saw some Scouters I haven't seen in a long time and really got some great ideas how to make camp more fun for the boys and easier for me as...[More]

Submitted by Laurie HendrixMy last tip (on dealing with crying children at courts of honor) struck a chord with Eagle Scout mom Laurie Hendrix. She pointed out that most kids only cry if there really is a problem and that it often doesn’t take much to distract them.Most parents, of course, know to bring along a toy or a few quiet books when they’re going to an event like a court of honor. But...[More]

Hello Everyone,I hope your Scouting year has been an active and good one, it has been here. I am taking on a new role as Committee Chair still doing Den Leader for my Pack and still serving as the Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner. It is an interesting juggling act, but getting it done.When I took over as the Committee Chair the Adult Leader who took over as Cubmaster has been with the Pack for 2...[More]

Hello Everyone,Another Scouting Year has moved to Summer which means fun and sun along with Camping.This last year I was asked to become Committee Chair for my Pack, it had been a few years since my Pack had one so it was a challenge. Past Cubmasters had taken on both roles, so my first challenge was to get the current Cubmaster and Committee to understand why you needed the Committee Chair.First thing I did was...[More]

A while back, an Eagle mom asked me a simple question: How do you tactfully suggest that court-of-honor guests leave their babies and small children at home? She was concerned that crying babies or rambunctious toddlers might detract from the dignity of the ceremony but didn’t want to offend any potential guests.I hadn’t thought about this question before, so I consulted a couple of wedding etiquette resources. The general consensus was that putting any...[More]

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked here about getting congratulatory letters from NASA. Given the recent death of Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong – and the fact that NASA has a relatively new procedure for letters, the time is probably right.Like many organizations, NASA has moved its request process online. Just go to https://bsgsra.hq.nasa.gov/public/ and fill out the simple form you’ll find there. If you’d rather submit your request by mail – or if you live...[More]

I once figured out that I’d spent roughly two years of my life on various Scout outings, from weekend campouts as a Scout to multiple trips to national jamborees and the Philmont Training Center as an adult. One result: I have no idea what it’s like to be a brand-new camper. I’m guessing you’re in the same boat. That can be a problem because new Scouts – and new campers – are joining our troops...[More]

You would never transport your Scouts after drinking alcohol, but you may be putting them at just as much risk. According to a researcher at the Henry Ford Hospital Sleep Disorders and Research Center in Detroit, losing four hours of sleep is the same as drinking a six-pack of beer. (Learn more at http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/05/30/us-drunken-drivers-idUSBRE84T14W20120530.)I don’t know about you, but I can remember many troop outings when I’ve gotten at least one poor night’s sleep because...[More]
