  1. $66 to National for youth $60 to Council for youth $48 to National for adults $12 to Council for adults (Insurance) Brand new Scouts have a $25 Joining Fee when they first register. This Scouting year is going to break me in fees alone. We normally pay for our older kids and grandkids Scouting fees. Told the adult kids they now have to pay their own way, we will still pay for the grandkids. Still, have myself, husband, Life Scout daughter, and Wolf grandson. Then for 3 years straight, we add a Lion to our growing Scouting family! CCJJ
  2. Since winter in Michigan can be tricky, we used to schedule a swim night at our local rec center in place of our January pack night. This was a family event and this got kids and families out of the house doing something together. The pack would pay for the registered youth to attend. Often we invited a local troop to attend with us and had one of their leaders work with our kids on swimming requirements. ccjj
  3. We purchased a 13th edition Boy Scout Handbook at our camp this fall. They were selling them for $5.00 That is what my daughter will be using on February 1st. ccjj
  4. These are what I found on a quick look....
  5. Going to look in my spare patch box this weekend. Hopefully I have one.
  6. I have been a UC for a while now. I try to visit each of my units monthly. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. I will at least email, or call someone from each unit. One of my units says.....Don't call us, we will call you. Another will reach out to me, asking me to attend a specific event. Each unit is different.
  7. My former council had a rule that you could only be a MBC for 8 Merit Badges. With all the changes in the state of Michigan, I am not sure how this will play out now.
  8. I received my beads this past summer at our Webelos Resident Camp. I am the Camp Director and after our Saturday night campfire, I let the campers and adults know what was going to happen. I gave them the choice to stay and watch or head back to our dining hall and we would be there in about 1/2 hour. Most of them chose to stay and watch. They had the choice and it was a short but meaningful ceremony for myself and one of my staff.
  9. My daughter has been a GS since she was a Kindergarden Daisy. Now, she is getting ready to start 5th grade and is a Junior. She also has been involved in Cub/Boy Scouting since before birth! She was the only one in her troop to attend summer camp this year. In the 5+ years she has been in GS, her troop has only camped in tents once and that was in the leaders back yard. This year, the girls are doing destination meetings. Their meetings will be held someplace relevant to what they are working on. Hopefully, this works out for them. Last year, we invited the girls to build a pinewood derby car and race it after our Cub Scout's race. They loved it! The leader found a badge from another state, and the girls all worked hard to earn it. I am hoping her troop gets outside more. My husband and I both have offered to help with anything outdoor related. Our Boy Scout troop has offered to let them use troop camping equipment if needed.
  10. My son came home from school one day and said he wanted to join Cub Scouts. I asked why? He said because Josh is! Josh was his best friend and they did everything together. Both boys joined, and stuck with it even though both boys moved. Josh earned First Class before he got too busy with FFA and other things. Justin stuck with it and earned his Eagle in 2008. Our whole family is heavily involved in Scouting. If for some reason we stopped, I wouldn't know what to do! My 8 year old daughter is in Girl Scouts, but she tells everyone she wants to be a Boy Scout. She has grown up in the program. My son is now giving back to Scouting in any way he can. He is helping with trainings, summer camps (I am the Camp Director), and will do most anything asked of him. I am proud of my son! ccjj
  11. Here, once the Scout turns in his completed Eagle Scout Application, the council sends out a form letter to the references listed. Since often Scouts don't turn in their application until close to their 18th birthday, there is no way that the letters could be back! ccjj
  12. We have attended the International Scout Rally since 2001, and it is an awesome experience. The Superhero theme was great fun. As for the Decades theme next year....I am still in think mode! So far, favorite themes have been Nursery Rhymes and TV Shows. I have not heard of being able to wear the Canadian flag on our uniforms. I don't think I'd want to, since I am not a Canadian Scout. ccjj
  13. Welcome. You normally can find lots of neat ideas and advice on here. Sometimes....well, just read and learn. I think I may be from the same council as you! ccjj
  14. I am on Facebook and Myspace and have several Scouts and Scouters as friends. I initially created a Facebook account to see some summer camp pictures that a DE friend had on her site. I personally see nothing wrong with it. Others may. ccjj
