First Responder is one of the Webelos Adventure Requirements. For this adventure, Webelos learn some basic first aid and emergency preparedness skills. They learn to respond to situations like choking, shock, bites and stings, cuts, cuts, burns, and more.
First aid baseball is a fun way to review first aid skills with Scouts BSA and Webelos. There are instructions for the game and a set of question cards included in the printable file.
Scouting programs encourage youth to have healthy habits. They learn about topics such as hand washing, getting enough sleep, and staying away from dangerous substances. Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA (Boy Scouts), and Venturers all learn to take good care of themselves. See some examples below.
Today’s youth must be familiar with the STEM areas – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – to be prepared for the world of tomorrow. BSA programs offer many opportunities for Scouts to experience STEM activities. The Nova awards for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA (Boy Scouts), and Venturers allow for in depth studies of STEM fields. There are also opportunities for STEM learning in the achievements for each program.
National Nurses Day is held annually on May 6. This is a day to celebrate nurses and to raise awareness of their contributions and commitment to society. There are many ways Scouts can celebrate this day.
