  1. Sending the new Boy Scout (he's 10) to a week of summer camp. Sending our Girl Scouts (a Brownie who's 8, and a Junior who's 12) to a week of summer camp as well. Now, if only the camps could have fallen on the same week ... the wife and I could have been "kidless" for a few days.

  2. Hi all. My son is getting ready to cross over into a Boy Scout troop next month. We received a "Personal Health and Medical Record" form to fill out, which includes immunization dates. I pulled out his immunization records and noticed he hasn't had the "Hepatitis A" immunization. I talked to a nurse, and she said it isn't a required immunization. My question is -- Does the BSA require this immunization? Or can I just put "n/a" on the form for Hepatitis A? (And also for "Polio"?) Thank you.


    BTW, I did a search on this and didn't see anything. I apologize if this has been discussed before.


  3. We turned off the cable in April. It was costing too much for what we were getting (cartoons). We replaced it with a subscription to Netflix. The kids never complained. They got out of the house more, and we have seen a ton of movies we always wanted to see (e.g., Follow Me Boys.)


  4. EagleInKY - Great advice, thank you. And, yes, I have enjoyed reading the "A Nation of Wimps" article and the replies. Three years ago, having only camped once, we bought a used camper and have gone out nearly every weekend in the spring/summer/fall since then. We go thousands of miles every year. It not only helps the wife and I keep our sanity, but the kids love it. It gets us back to nature, the skinned knees, etc.

    CrewMomma - We are really enjoying the Cub Scout time, and we are looking forward to Boy Scouts. We have both our girls in Girl Scouts also.

  5. Hi. I have been reading this forum every day for the last several months, so I decided to post something to show my presence. I was only a cub scout for a couple of years when growing up, so I missed a lot of this scout stuff. My son is a Webelos II now, and loves it. So do I. I am an assistant Webelos den leader. My latest obsession is learning about scouting, and I love reading everyone's posts.
