  1. We in Chickasaw Council and Kia Kima (KKSR) have a Summer Camp program called TrailBlazers.  This program is a 3 hr program (not in a stinking room) designed primarily for scouts who are new to scouting and are coming to camp for the first time.  The purpose of the program is to give new scouts a jump start by teaching them the basic outdoor skills needed throughout their scouting career with a focus on working up to the requirements of First Class.

    So in the UK we don't just have Bear Grylls as Chief Scout we also have some more minor celebs as Scouting Ambassadors. Sometimes they do events by themselves other times the accompany Bear to things. What they all do is help get publicity for Scouting, we have been fairly succesful in the last 12 years or so on getting fairly regular national news coverage of Scouting,

     

     

     

    I am a HUGE Bear Grylls fan...one day watching one of his episodes I notice the World scouting patch on some random jacket...at that time I had no idea he was a Scout.  I wish we had someone like Bear here in the states for publicity.  I wish we could borrow him for a while.

    @JasonG172, it was about not making a high adventure your 1st adventure. More specifically about folding a conditioning program into your troop's regular schedule over 18 months. Because of the small class size, I was able to help scouters rough out some short-term objectives.

    Ahh so this was a for scouts?


  4. I'm a SM now and one of our traditions when awarding completed MB is having the scout talk about 1 MB and when he learned...I had one bone head say (I don't know, I slept through it) it was First Aid....Well guess what! he doesn't have that MB and is now retaking it lol

  5. I agree with this and I fight with an AC that believe simply attending a MB class constitutes competition.   When the topic came up on her son's cooking MB I asked where did you hike to complete the meal prep while backpacking.....CRICKETS

     

    Tired of seeing lame excuses for MB Classes.


  6. Wow you got paid to work Day Camp?  That's awesome.

    I can work at a pediatric office when I turn 17. It’s partnered with my school. No jobs for 15 or 16.

    This is the sad part for 16 & 17 year old, jobs they use to have access to are now being done by adults. 

     

    Need to find what's best for you.

    I have never heard of the Magic Draft, but I sure have heard of Magic cards.  They are a plague on Scouting (and on humankind in general) as far as I am concerned. There have been incidents at summer camp of kids stealing cards, charging each other exorbitant amounts (in U.S. $) for cards, and other un-Scoutlike behavior.  I am glad my son never got into that whole thing.

    Sounds like patches as well to me, so we should get rid of them as well.    NEVERMIND someone beat me to he punch, sorry
