When I first joined Scouting I was only a little kid and had no idea what it was or why I was doing it. My parents wanted me to do I did. After my first few minutes I was hooked. I love the adventure and the fun. Over the years I grew older and moved up through the program. Scouting became the biggest thing in my life and the number one thing I looked forward...[More]

As a young Boy Scout I loved to camp and go on the adventures but when night fell no matter where I looked the bushes, trees, and rocks just look like animals and other creatures waiting to jump out at me. Don't get me wrong I was not scared of the dark. But the tricks the eye plays in low light, making normal objects look like monsters did frighten me. As a result I used...[More]

You may have recently seen my poll asking if you would like a website that provides all the tools to plan an outdoor adventure. Listings would include campgrounds, hiking trails, attractions, geocahces, tours, lodging, restaurants, fishing spots, and much more. The site will be fully searchable by location. When you are viewing a campground for example you will also be able to easily find out about museums, amusement parks, stores, trails, restaurants, etc in...[More]

The Province newspaper (Vancouver, BC) reported the other day that a man in his fifty’s approached two young boys that were selling lemonade and asked them if he could take their photo.  The boys felt uneasy about the man and went inside and told their parents who in turn called the police. THE PROVINCE: Man approaches boys at Chilliwack lemonade stand Now the article is pretty vague and leaves a lot of detail out, which of course...[More]

The little boy was walking down a path and he came across a rattlesnake. The rattlesnake was getting old. He asked, "Please little boy, can you take me to the top of the mountain? I hope to see the sunset one last time before I die." The little boy answered "No Mr. Rattlesnake. If I pick you up, you'll bite me and I'll die." The rattlesnake said, "No, I promise. I won't bite you. Just...[More]

Today is Child Abuse Awareness Day (along with Child Abuse Awareness Month in some places) so I thought this would be an appropriate article. A recent Reuters article claims that with the economic turmoil going on right now, child abuse and neglect cases have been rising throughout the United States, with one hospital having 1800 cases - a large increase from 1500 the previous year. This makes me think of the little boy from last week who...[More]

Our Blue & Gold coordinator made a little twist on February's theme of "American ABC's" to "Scouting Coast to Coast." In preparation for the banquet, each Den was assigned 5 to 6 states to learn about and inspire their den's table decorations. As a den leader I decided to test the social networking waters for the boys in my den and reach out to total strangers via Twitter and ask for postcards to include in our...[More]

Everyday we work with different sort of labels, whether it be labeling people or being labeled and us trying to deal with it. If you work with kids, such as in a school setting where you are an authoritative figure (or even if you are not), you have probably seen a child and instantly labeled a child with the dreaded “TROUBLE” word. Are we justified in doing so however? Are we essentially hurting the child? I admit,...[More]
