Welcome from Scouter Mom!

Welcome Scouts and Scouters! Here you can find resources for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers. I also have ideas for games, crafts, recipes, ceremonies, songs, skits, themes and more.

Ask a Question

Are you facing a challenging question related to Scouting that seems to have no clear answer? Don’t worry; I’m here to assist! Contact me with your queries, no matter how big or small, and I’ll make sure to share them with the broader Scouting community. This way, you can tap into the collective wisdom and experience of fellow scouts and leaders.

Whether it’s about camping tips, merit badge requirements, event planning, or leadership advice, the Scouting community is a rich resource. By sharing your question, not only will you get the answers you need, but you’ll also help others who might have the same question. Let’s work together to find solutions and enhance our Scouting journey. Remember, every question is an opportunity to learn and grow in our Scouting adventure!

Share Your Ideas

Do you have a fantastic Scouting idea or innovative approach that you’re excited about? Whether it’s a unique camping hack, a creative fundraising strategy, a fun game for your troop, or an effective way to teach a merit badge, I’d love to hear from you! Contact me, providing as many details as you can. If your idea aligns well with the principles and practices of Scouting and seems like it would benefit other scouts and leaders, I will gladly share it with the wider Scouting community.

By contributing your ideas, you’re not just helping your troop, but potentially inspiring and aiding Scouts and leaders across various programs. Let’s collaborate to make Scouting even more engaging and enriching for everyone involved. Remember, every idea, big or small, can make a significant difference!

You are also invited to join the Scout Moms, Dads, and Leaders Facebook group to ask questions and share ideas.
