Current Topics for Scouts and Scouters
To earn the Cave Exploring elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must learn about caving and the skills needed to explore caves. Then they must explore a cave and share their knowledge with others.
While working on the Water Sports merit badge, Scouts learn to safely enjoy sports such as water skiing or wakeboarding. They learn about the equipment needed to enjoy these sports and demonstrate their skills.
Webelos Walkabout is one of the Webelos required adventures. For this adventure, Webelos plan and carry out a three mile hike and complete a service project.
Talking with youth about personal safety is important. BSA requires discussion of personal safety throughout it’s programs. We don’t want to scare youth, but they should know what to do if they feel uncomfortable in a situation. The Three R’s of personal safety should be a part of that discussion.
To complete the Project COPE elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must complete a BSA COPE course, attend a COPE director’s course, or participate in an outdoor education course.
Scouts working on the Genealogy merit badge learn about their family heritage. They explore the many ways to research information about their ancestors and where they came from. Scouts will appreciate their family history and learn how this can lead them to delve deeper into their cultural roots.
