Blog:    Clearing up misconceptions and showing there’s room for everyone in Scouting, especially Scouts with special needs
21 Mar 2018 | 3:08 pm
You might have seen the story about a Boy Scout from Utah who has Down syndrome and is working on his Eagle Scout rank. I wanted to clear up some misconceptions about this impressive young man. First, reports that Logan Blythes merit badges were revoked and that he was demoted to Cub Scout arent true. Logan is still registered as a Boy Scout, and the merit badges he earned are still listed in the BSAs advancement records. The option to earn the rank of Eagle Scout has been and still is available to Logan. The BSA has apologized to the family...

21 Mar 2018 | 1:22 pm
Boy Scouting has been in the news this week, but not for something good. The father of a Scouting with Down syndrome has sued the BSA for blocking his son from becoming an Eagle Scout.

Blog:    The Results for the Top Girl Scout Songs Are In!
21 Mar 2018 | 11:45 am
Theres more to being a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) than seeking new challenges and taking the lead. Making new friends, camping under the stars, and singing with your favorite girl gang are all part of what makes Girl Scouts so special. Creating lifetime memories through timeless traditions, like singalongs, is a bond that unites so many in the Girl Scout Movement. Theres nothing like reminiscing through song: where were you when you last heard it? (At camp.) What were you doing? (Celebrating a new achievementlike bridging or earning one of the highest awards.) Who were you with? (My troop,...

Blog:    Exposure to Nature Key to Development
21 Mar 2018 | 11:07 am
A new study shows yet another good reason to regularly experience the outdoors: it boosts childrens brain development. The study from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health has found that long-term exposure to green space during childhood is associated with structural changes to the brain that lead to improved memory and less distraction. Additionally, children who grew up in environments with more exposure to nature had more activity in the regions of their brain associated with learning and social skills. Ive seen in Scouting time and time again the ways that nature benefits youth....

Girls in Guiding do amazing things in their communities and in their own lives.Girl Guides of Canada scholarship recipient Safira shares how Guiding has been a huge spark in her life.

Blog:    Volunteers invent an ingenious method of Pinewood Derby car judging
21 Mar 2018 | 8:00 am
Christie Finch wasnt the biggest fan of the way Pinewood Derby cars were judged in her pack and district. So she invented a better way. The new approach includes the youth, rewards Cub Scouts who work hard to design their cars with a parent or guardian, and builds excitement and fun on race day. This all started when Finch and another Cub Scout volunteer,Casey Crausauz, noticed something in commonabout all the cars that won Best in Show: They were very obviously designed and painted by a Cub Scout alone with no help from mom or dad.
