Welcome Scouters, as we all know, Scouts love to play games, so here is one from my archives called “Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.” I bet even boy scouts will enjoy this one. Here is how its played.

 

The scout’s sit in a circle with one Cub in the center holding the bean bag. He throws the bag at someone and shouts ‘Earth !’, ‘Water!’, ‘Air!’ or ‘Fire!’. If it is ‘Earth,’ the chosen Cub must reply with the name of an animal, before the center Cub counts to ten. If it is ‘Water,’ he must think of a fish, if ‘Air’ - a bird and if ‘Fire’ - whistle for the Fire Engine. Note: Once a creature has been named, it may not be called again. If the Cub can not reply in time, he changes places with the thrower.

Hello Troop Leaders,   After much deliberation and thoughtful consideration, the Executive Board of The Spirit of Adventure Council has made the difficult decision not to run summer resident camp in 2021.   The economic impact of the COVID restrictions has made it impossible to run camp without significant financial deficit, or transferring those costs to an already burdened membership – you.  Special staffing requirements, COVID testing standards, higher food expenses, and uncertain attendance all were factors that went into the decision.  This was not an easy decision, and we ultimately needed to decide to do what’s best for our ......

It’s been 11 years since Tim Burns first spotted the Eagle Scout badge in his Scout Handbook. He knew he wanted it — though, like most new Scouts, he didn’t fully understand all the hard work it would take to get there. He does now. Last month, Tim earned the Eagle Scout Award as part of Troop 263, a troop for Scouts with special needs in the Dallas-based Circle Ten Council. Tim is 28 and has Down syndrome. Like all Scouts with physical or intellectual disabilities, he was given extra time to complete Scouting’s requirements. For his dad, Ben Burns, ......

After an Eagle Scout court of honor, with all the air-fives exchanged and all the red, white and blue cupcakes reduced to crumbs, it might feel like the end of a young person’s character-building journey. But for many newly minted Eagle Scouts, their Scouting adventure is just beginning. Eagle Scouts have a number of ways to continue their Scouting journey after receiving the highest rank in Scouts BSA. And many Eagle Scouts, myself included, find their post-Eagle experience in Scouting to be even more enjoyable than the journey to Eagle. Eagle Scouts can continue earning merit badges and go for ......
 
 


Second BSA Scout food drive fills Watertown Food Pantry shelves Scouts collected 2.5 tons of food for the food pantry this past November, but both the Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting unemployment in Watertown has hit our community hard. At the November drive Kathleen Cunningham, Director of the Watertown Food Pantry made an unusual request: Could another food drive be held soon? Scouting for Food is a service project the BSA Scouts have participated in for years: Supporting a local food pantry, scouts across the U.S. collect food once a year, usually around Thanksgiving when many are feeling generous.

Before hitting the trail, you want to Be Prepared. And if you’re driving an off-road vehicle (ORV), part of being prepared is wearing a helmet. A properly fit off-road vehicle helmet is your most critical piece of safety gear, according to Polaris Industries, the official ATV provider of the Boy Scouts of America. In 2014, the BSA partnered with Polaris Industries to create opportunities for Scouts to ride off-road vehicles. Thousands of Scouts have taken ATV safety training as well as trail-building and conservation courses at Scout camps across the country. Scouts and Venturers age 14 and older may drive ......
