Tue, 2020-03-24 14:59

April is National Youth Protection month, and the BSA takes that very seriously. We want to be sure all leaders and parents are aware of the BSA’s Youth Protection guidelines and all the steps the BSA is taking to ensure the safety of all youth.

You may have heard of the Barbara Sinatra Foundation, which is dedicated to ensuring every child’s right to a normal, healthy and secure childhood. Joining us for this special episode is John Thoresen, the director of the Barbara Sinatra Foundation. John will share with us what the foundation does and how its partnership with the BSA helps to provide personal safety awareness training to all Scouts

March 2020 – Bridging

Wed, 2020-02-26 10:25

This month, we ask the questions: What is bridging? What does it mean? Is there a difference between cross-over and bridging? Well, we found volunteer extraordinaire Bill Campbell, who runs Pack 143 out of the Central Florida Council. It’s a large Cub Scout pack that is known for offering a high-quality Scouting program. We believe Bill will help explain everything we need to know about bridging.

So, many of you have probably, hopefully, heard about Scoutbook – the online tool designed to make your Scouting Leadership duties a lot easier.

So, we invited assistant Den Leader Michaela Monson with Pack 192 of the Longhorn Council in Fort Worth, Texas. Michaela is also the project manager for the development of Scoutbook. And we’re here to share with you all the reasons why YOU should be using Scoutbook.
