Just one thing...

Recommended Posts

Imagine a coworker passing you in the hall on his way to a meeting. You also know him as a new Scoutmaster of a new troop. There is no time to chat, only enough time to say a few words in passing. The coworker says, "leaving after this meeting for my first camp out as Scoutmaster, any advice?

 

What would you say? Do you have one quick piece of advice for a new Scoutmaster that might make a difference in helping him toward a boy run patrol method program? 

 

One sentence, no explanation, short and sweet.

 

I'll start: "Set all camp sites at least 300 feet apart".

I'd say "Have fun and tell me all the stories when yeh get back!".

LOL, I think he would be proud.

 

I don't mind giving him credit for the phrase, but our troop was doing it and I was teaching it long before I found this forum.

I'd say something like

"Have fun, and remember....don't do anything a scout could do for themselves!"

Have fun, and keep your mouth shut unless it involves a question or preventing bloodshed.
