  1. Yes, we know that. Amazingly well organized binder. Up-to-date Scout handbook... Just looking for an app someone might use that they like so we might explore and decide if we like it.
  2. Ahhhh... it is also a wise one who recognizes & respects the different learning/organization styles for different people. He’s 14 and Life rank... he uses his handbook for advancement, no problem. Still looking for an APP for Merit Badges. If the documents Advancement as well that’s a bonus. He productively and appropriately uses his phone as a tool...
  3. Are there any active FB groups for Scouters. It seems that a much larger audience could be reached and more resources shared there... I am part of a couple great hiking groups that would translate so awesomely to scouts. Regional groups... closed groups only open to people with current YPT? Anything like that out there?
  4. What is the best app for my Scout to track everything??? I feel like we’ve had a couple good ones over the years and then at some point it’s recommended we switch to something else. We are trying to reach Eagle sooner than later and the only thing holding my ADD kid back is tracking/organization and he gets overwhelmed I would love to hear what others are using. Personal use. Not troop... Thank you!! I’m sure this is out there somewhere but I didn’t find anything recent after a couple searches.
  5. This is an old thread but still relevant to us. Our troop tends to circle back to the council camp every 6 or 7 years. I don't feel bad about it because we use the local camp on a regular basis for training outings and we attend Camporee and do service projects there. The boys are all bored with it - even though it's great! - because it's also where they spent all of their Cub Scout years. We support our local council... we just don't attend their summer camp!
  6. I think we want to stay within OR, ID, Mt for next summer. Road trip!
  7. Our troop is looking for some ideas to branch out for a new summer camp experience. We have been to Camp Parsons (WA), Camp Meriwether (OR), Fire Mountain (WA), Camp Easton (ID) and Camp Pigott (WA). Do you have a favorite camp you have attended recently that you can recommend? We are currently considering Camp Melita Island in Montana and Camp Baldwin in Oregon. I would love to hear your recommendations, reasons why, and any tips and advice you might share.
  8. ...I agree. That part does seem pretty clear But I know that I had read -and been told- that naturopaths could also sign off so I was curious if anyone had personal experience. And you are correct! I do indeed hope the BSA accepts licensed Naturopaths (I'm not sharing this argumentatively, I appreciate your input and Wiki-research) The schools in our area accept sports physicals from naturopaths and licensed chiropractic physicians who have clinical training and experience in detecting cardiopulmonary diseases and defects. Personally, based on our family's last year of medical issu
  9. I am the parent of a new scout as well as the summer camp coordinator for the troop. We have quite a few families who no longer see allopathic practitioners as listed on Form C of the medical forms. They see chiropractors and naturopaths as their families' medical care providers. I feel that I have seen somewhere that DCs & NDs are able to sign off on their son's Form C - but now that it is time to turn the forms in and I see it lists only MD, DO, nurse practitioners or physician assistants, and I can't find where I found that information. Can you shed any light on this for me? Thank y
  10. This post is part inquiry & part vent... it might be more vent than anything I'm new to scouting. My older son joined as a Tiger and didn't enjoy it at all... I was able to convince him to join again midway through Web II and he loved it and crossed over last May. He received First Class in October and is really enjoying Boy Scouts. Because of his experience we encouraged his little brother to join Cub Scouts this year. In October we still did not have a Bear den leader and I offered to 'lead' things until someone could officially take over. At that point, I really had no clue how
