Lesson: Teaching Totin' Chit
By: Posted On: 2010-03-02

One year when I was on Summer Camp staff I was the main person teaching the Totin' chit at camp. I even got to the point where I was being asked by Scoutmasters to come to there camp and put on the course for their whole Troop. During one of the normal classes in the Outdoor Skills area I was trying to teach this one Scout how to properly do the blood circle. The lad kept bring the tool down between his legs instead of next to his leg. After several demonstrations and explaining it repeatly, he still kept doing it. I finally asked if he wanted to be a “Girl Scout”, from that point forward he did it correctly.
