We always like going on camp, whether it is to a large Jamboree or a small cub camp as long as there are loads of fun activities we like it.

I recently had the pleasure to interview 16 year old Eagle Scout Blake Cortright, who created the documentary film “The First Encampment”. As explained on the films website http://www.thefirstencampment.com/backgroundstory.htm In 1908, Sir Robert Baden Powell started Boy Scouts in England. Only a few years later, with the backing of Chicago publisherWilliam Boyce, the Boy Scouts of America was formed. The YMCA played an integral part in its early development. In August 1910, the YMCA...[More]

The point of the Ten Essentials list (developed by the Mountaineers Club, with origins in the climbing course taught by the Club since the 1930s) has always been to help answer two basic questions: First, can you respond positively to an accident or emergency? Second, can you safely spend a night or more out?Most people including myself agree that the actually list has more then ten items on it. What I did is create my...[More]

I have found my 25 years plus experience in Toastmasters International has helped me in many ways.First, if the adults are losing their minds they have successfully lost their sense of humor and are messing up the program for the boys. There are parts of Scouting we have to take very seriously, outside of that if the boys are learning as they advance and having fun go with it. I have only had to tell...[More]

Campfire can be quit fun and challenging at the same time. For starters many parts of the country have bans of fires during the summer months, such as the area I am in. This has forced us to get creative for example maybe instead of a fire we will hang around a gas lantern or battery light source.If you are planning a formal campfire don't forget about the cycle of the program. You want to...[More]
