  1. This is hot off the press... BREAKING: The resolution to use the Scout Oath and Scout Law for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity, Sea Scouts, and Venturing was approved this morning by the Boy Scouts of Americas executive board. Some of the changes begin in 2013-2014. Read more on Bryan on Scouting: http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2012/10/17/bsa-to-use-scout-oath-and-scout-law-for-all-programs/'>http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2012/10/17/bsa-to-use-scout-oath-and-scout-law-for-all-programs/ I think that it is a good move in the long run. What are your thoughts? http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2012/10/17/bsa-to-use-scout-oath-and-scout-law-for-all-programs/

    Woodbadge Course

    Moosetracker, You are absolutely correct! I live on Grand Island, NY. It is an Island in the middle of the Niagara River, between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Our Western shore overlooks Canada, and our Eastern shore overlooks Tonawanda, your hometown. We really have GREAT Summers in this neck of the woods. The lake breezes help to keep us comfortable in the summer. The Niagara River and the Great Lakes have really terrific boating. I am putting together an Erie Canal Trip with some friends in August. Our Wood Badge Course is being held at Scout Haven. It is a great camp in Freedom, NY about an hours south of Buffalo. It should prove to be a great time!

    Camp coffee making

    Does this mean that I can't bring my Keurig Coffeemaker to Philmont?

    Embroidered Nametape for Uniform Shirt

    This is kind of interesting! We were camping this weekend, and after on of the boys lost his magnetic nametag again (a common occurrence)we discussed this very idea! I used to work for an ambulance service, and our nametags were fabric sewed onto our uniform shirts. It worked great.

    Using Alcohol for cooking

    From the Guide to Safe Scouting: The Boy Scouts of America prohibits the use of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances at encampments or activities on property owned and/or operated by the Boy Scouts of America, or at any activity involving participation of youth members. A Scout is Trustworthy. ...A Scout tells the truth. He is honest, and he keeps his promises. People can depend on him. A Scout is Loyal. ..A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation. A Scout is Obedient. ...A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them. A Scout is Clean. ...A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He chooses the company of those who live by high standards. He helps keep his home and community clean. The rule prohibiting alcohol makes sense. As adults, do we really want to set the example that rules and laws can be set aside at will, if we do not personally agree with them. Just a thought.
