Cub Scouting Awards

Cub Scouters love awards! CubCast listener Chris Allen asked if we could do a show all about Cub Scouting awards. Well, Chris, not only do we love getting awards - we love talking about them! April Borge, den leader for Pack 62 in Lewisville, Texas, joins us for a fun discussion!

Exploring Awards

The actor Alan Alda once said, “Awards can give you a tremendous amount of encouragement to keep getting better, no matter how young or old you are.” No one knows that better than the Boy Scouts of America and Learning for Life. We love getting awards and talking about getting awards. Melinda Inman, Exploring District Executive with the Northern Star Council in St. Paul, Minnesota, joins us for the discussion.

Making an Ordinary Meeting Extraordinary

Let’s take a minute to think about your troop or crew meetings. Hopefully by this point, you’re in the norming or performing stage and everyone is having fun, but have the meetings gotten a little predictable? Every now and again, you should have a meeting that stands out above the rest, a meeting where everyone leaves saying, “Wow!”

So right here on ScoutCast is Eagle Scout Mark Ray, key writer of the 13th Edition of the Boy Scout Handbook and the new two-volume Troop Leader Guidebook to help lead the discussion.
