I love daylight saving time. I realize that it doesn’t actually add an hour of light to the day and that it probably doesn’t save energy, but I love summer evenings that last well after 9 p.m.However, those summer evenings can play havoc with Eagle courts of honor. If you hold your ceremony in a room that’s flooded with natural light, you can have trouble dimming the lights enough to show a video, something many...[More]

Trying to find a simple way to Philmont on your own can be a daunting task. It can make your once in a lifetime trip far less enjoyable.

Why go through that aggravation?Hire Blue Sky Adventures: The Experts in Philmont Travel! Why do you ask? Because we are the...[More]

This oldly, but still hilarious skit was performed by Troop 532 of Helena, AL. It diffently brings back memories from years of going to camp as a Scout and all my years on camp staff. Hop you enjoy. ...[More]

My W2s are in their last year of Cub Scouts, working toward their April crossover to Boy Scouts. They’re working (somewhat diligently) on their Arrow of Light award while trying to balance sports, religious commitments and of course school. They’re also getting to that age where they’re starting to reevaluate whether they really want to be in Scouts. I want to support them in whatever decision they make – these boys have become my boys...[More]

This is a good one for those of you out there who collect skits. Lets just say it resolves around “bugs” and “ladies” and lots of giggling …. ...[More]

If you’ve been to many parties or receptions in the last decade or so, you’ve probably seen at least one sheet cake with a photograph on top. Bakeries around the country can “print” a photograph directly on a sheet cake and then add borders of icing or fondant. (To be more precise, they print the photograph on a thin sheet of edible paper, which they then stick on top of your cake.)So, what does...[More]

Be warned this video does use adult language, adult jokes, talk about gay and religion with in Scouts in a frank, some what satire, and historical way. In a way this is a political video and will probably upset you in some way. This video is part of the Penn & Teller Bullshit series. It does take a frank, tough love, harsh tone and tries to balance both the pro's and con's side of...[More]

This year I find myself in the position of Webelos 2 Den Leader. I’m not quite sure how it happened – I think there was a need and I couldn’t say no – but it’s a position I think I may have previously underestimated.There’s a lot of planning that goes into meetings. There’s a lot of paperwork and there’s a lot recordkeeping, and there’s a ton of coordination with other packs and troops – and...[More]

I would like to thank Amy Echlin for sharing this post with us. She wrote for a session of University of Scouting. What is advancement?Advancement is the process by which youth members of the Boy Scouts of America progress from rank to rank in the Scouting program. Advancement is simply a means to an end, and not an end in itself. Everything done to advance and earn these ranks should be designed to help the...[More]
