This weekend our Venturing Crew did the Introduction to Youth Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC). This course teaches Crew members basic leadership skills. There is a corresponding course for Scouts BSA Troops (ILST).
A few years back we had a Cubmaster who really enjoyed audience participation segments. The cornier the better! This is a classic along those lines. This would also work to help demonstrate the importance of clear communication when giving instructions.
This month I am featuring the BSA Abracadabra theme for the January Pack meeting. If you want to add some fun to your meeting, perform a simple magic trick. Cub Scouts will love it.
Association with adults is one of the methods used in both Scouts BSA and Venturing. While these programs are youth-led, there are still adults present to mentor and help the youth leaders.
July 24 is Tall an Old Joke Day. Bear Cub Scouts can work on their Roaring Laughter adventure, and all Scouts can incorporate some laughs into their program.
