We are not sponsored by, nor endorsed by any Scouting Organization, InsaneScouter is an independent effort.  Your support supplements our very modest sponsor revenue and goes towards the growing expenses of creating and maintaining InsaneScouter. Much like how a magazine subscription pays for the articles & graphics to be created, and keeps the presses running.

When we were children, we all wondered and thought about what we might be when we grew up. Sometimes, young children might say that they want to be singers or actors, models, or pop-stars. Some will say that they want to become firefighters, electricians, or police officers. Others want to be engineers or archeologists or doctors. When I was in elementary school, I had pretty much decided that I wanted to be a teacher. By the time of my sophomore year in high school, I had refined my growing up idea to say that I wanted to be a history ......

Facebook image by Nick Owen My mother and several of my friends (mostly males) all asked me the same question as I was growing up.   As a young Scoutmaster, I was asked that same question by parents who were interested in Boy Scouting but wondered out loud, "what will he get out of this?"  Black and Latino's families ask that same question when I go to communities of color and introduce and explain Scouting to them. It is a universal question, sometimes even asked of ourselves: "What's the value of all that Scout crap?  It sounds and looks to me like algebra or Latin ......
 
 

Spark image provided by Arrowman and Scouter William Pettigrew (a "wide game" is one in which participants are randomly given some item, a card, puzzle piece, or placard for instance, and are directed to go around and collect all of the other parts or pieces (or collect the entire set of cards). Once all pieces or cards are collected, the participants return together to a central point to receive a prize.  The real prize, however, is the new friendships that emerge in the process of finding, collecting, and working together to solve the "puzzle" or "creating the word or phrase.")The first ......

The Boy Scouts of America is committed to the safety of all youth in its programs. The unpredictability of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the impact it has had on BSA councils so far prompted the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 National Jamboree. This decision was not made lightly. Being prepared for the largest national gathering of Scouts takes years to do. The pandemic and the unresolved issues surrounding it have made it exceedingly difficult to plan for this event and do so in a way that would keep the safety of Scouts, volunteers, staff, and communities at ...

In 2019, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the BSA asked six teams of volunteers and professionals from the local, area, regional and national level – including current or recent youth members and subject-matter experts – to develop plans on how to optimize the BSA for success in key areas based on input provided by more than 1, 100 local, area, region and national volunteers and professionals, including Youth Safety: How do we keep young people safe? Program: Are the BSA programs aligned with today’s young people? Communications and Marketing: How can National Council improve communication with ...
 
 


Not only can trekking 50 miles put a feather in your hat of Scouting accomplishments, but it can also add a patch to your collection. The 50-Miler Award is a favorite among Scouts who conquer long, multiday adventures. Often, they go on foot, by boat or on a bicycle. But we’ve received a few questions from Scouters who have studied the patch and noticed something missing from the requirements. Can you earn the 50-Miler Award on horseback? There is a horseshoe on the patch, but the requirements do not mention horseback riding. We asked the BSA’s Camping Subcommittee if a ...

At Scouting Radio we get hundreds of emails daily. One email really got our attention which was from a listener in America who claimed her Scout Association wanted to remove any links to Baden-Powell because of newly reported allegations along with removing links to Wood Badge or Wood Beads training because apparently Baden Powell stole the beads from a dead African girl Is there any truth to this story? We ask Colin Walker, Scout Historian to clarify the claims. Visit www.ScoutingRadio.com for all information on our station. Please like, comment share, and subscribe...
